22-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime set a new career-high ATP world ranking of sixth this week after reaching the semi-finals of the Paris Masters before defeat to eventual champion Holger Rune last week. The Canadian finished the tour off with three ATP titles in three weeks to take his total for the year, and his career so far, to four and he claimed a first victory over Rafael Nadal on Tuesday to go with his recent first win over Novak Djokovic at the Laver Cup.
World number nine Taylor Fritz lost a tight match in three sets to Casper Ruud on Tuesday but a straight-sets victory over Rafael Nadal on Sunday keeps him in the race for the final semi-finals spot in this group. The 25-year-old started 2022 off in searing form, reaching the second week of a Grand Slam for the first time in a close five-set defeat to Stefanos Tsitsipas, but he outdid that feat this summer with another five-set epic against Nadal at Wimbledon to come within points of a first semi-final. Fritz won his first Masters title this year, beating an injury-hampered Nadal in three sets at Indian Wells.
Taylor Fritz was not supposed to be in Turin after missing out on qualification for the ATP Cup but world number one Carlos Alcaraz’ absence paved the way for what has been an impressive second chance. The American came close to ousting group leader Casper Ruud on Tuesday, buoyed by his revenge over Rafael Nadal on Sunday, and Felix Auger-Aliassime is not quite at the level of his red-hot recent weeks. This straight-up battle for the last remaining semi-final place should be a thrilling second encounter between the two, with Fritz taking their first meeting in three tight sets at the ATP Cup back in January. Fritz has taken at least a set in both of his matches so far in Turin and backing him to do so here looks the sensible way to avoid picking an outright winner.
