Small Colin is getting results a couple of years ahead of schedule!! Bravo, eh?
Felix had that fantastic footwork when I first saw video of him when he was 14! That’s what stood out to me. He was already moving around the court like a pro.Not too observant are you. Felix is unique and his shots are his own but of course some of them are similar to other players. What you missed was his fantastic foot work, very much like Rafa's magic dancing feet, and that's going to take him as far as a lot of his shots will.
But who is the Djokovic and who is the Mury?Felix Becomes Youngest Miami Semi-finalist In [the] 35 Year [History of the Tournament]
The last time two teenagers reached the quarter-finals or better in Miami was in 2007 with Novak Djokovic (won) and Andy Murray (QF), both 19.
Going for a six-pack vs Isner on Friday to match his abs, no?Felix Auger Aliassime is now 5-0 against top-20 opponents.
2018 Toronto vs No. 18 Pouille
2019 Rio vs No. 16 Fognini
2019 Indian Wells vs No. 10 Tsitsipas
2019 Miami vs No. 19 Basilashvili
2019 Miami vs No. 13 Coric
In this very hypothetical case, no, I don't think he would be. If you asked me a few weeks ago, I would have had a different response. It seems as if there has been a bit change in Felix's mental set, where he is staying in the moment and focusing on each point, rather than the match.Does Felix have a chance in the final against the mighty Fedor would he be so overwhelmed he would crap his pants
For those that have only recently started following FAA and/or Shapo, they started their journey four years ago by winning the 2015 US Open Junior Doubles title together.
It's going to be Felix and I have no problem if he's Felix the Cat.Nobody with that name can become legendary in tennis.
Laver, Borg, Connors, McEnroe, Wilander, Lendl, Becker, Edberg, Sampras, Federer, Nadal, Djokovic.
It needs to be a simple, one word name.
Reminds me of the Federal Arbitration Act.In current Boeing debacle context, I find that FAA nickname disturbing. The first time I heard Brad Gilbert use it on TV, I was like: why is he talking about plane regulations in the middle of a match ????
Anyway... go Felix
It looks like they're officially going with FA2 as his moniker, probably to differentiate from the Federal Aviation Administration on purpose.FAA.
Two weeks ago:Can we be more careful in anointing a guy like this to the "throne"? I bet he gets beat down by ATP pros for years.
Clearly, he's not the "King" (yet), but can't you at least admit that at 18 he's considerably better than you expected him to be? Absent injury or bizarre psychosis this kid's going to be in the top-10 within two years and eventually, in all likelihood, will spend time at #1 and win grand slams... at some point. You just don't see this kind of trajectory often on the men's side at this age that suddenly goes sideways, although anything's possible.Let's not anoint the kid as 'King' before he's even won a title. Zverev is MILES ahead of #NextGen overall.

It's all over this ESPN article: http://www.espn.com/tennis/story/_/id/26352989/18-year-old-felix-auger-aliassime-verge-major-breakout
Also, his official racquet bag is branded with "FA2".
However... just like two weeks ago, Felix himself said he likes FAA:
This article is old. It's accurate but dated. Just three weeks later Felix and Denis (along withBenjamin Sigouin) won the Junior Davis Cup. It was Canada's first ever Cup win and Felix and Denis played the doubles tie to clinch it.For those that have only recently started following FAA and/or Shapo, they started their journey four years ago by winning the 2015 US Open Junior Doubles title together.
He will be running on fumes in the final, if he gets there.I am elated about this amazing run and now a chance to rest after the heavy scheduling from qualies to semis. He has to avoid that mini walkabout he had in the middle of the first set vs Coric if he is to take down Isner and reach his second final in a little over a month. His returns are sharp enough to get it done if the big serving opponent is not at his best.
Isner has that nasty habit of involving his opponents in long drawn out sets finishing with TBs, so Felix better be on his top return game, if he wants a rest.Without any rain delay, he gets a day between SF and final and Isner’s style won’t grind him down if he does win the matchup.
