Novak Djokovic reveals the Next Gen player he likes the most amid Wimbledon struggles

Novak Djokovic has revealed he likes the 18-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime, even though the Canadian become the latest next-generation talent to fluff his lines at Wimbledon. Auger-Aliassime was beaten in straight sets 6-4 7-5 6-3 by Ugo Humbert, ranked 45 places lower. The world No.1 explained: “He’s very impressive in many aspects. He’s very mature for his age. Very, very nice guy. Good manners. Respectful. Wants to learn. He’s very dedicated. “He’s probably the one that I like the most from the young generation as a tennis player and as a person, I think. All the superlatives for him definitely. He’s been impressive this year, everything he has done. Still a teenager, but he’s one of the best players in the world. If you see the results from this year, he’s one of the most consistent players.”
