Auger-Aliassime won 16 matches in a row, including three ATP Tour titles, before the loss in Paris.

That win streak earned Auger-Aliassime a spot in the ATP Finals starting Nov. 13 in Turin, Italy.

It’s the first time he has qualified for the elite season-ending tournament.

The 22-year-old has also played himself into contention for the Lionel Conacher Award, the Canadian Press’s male athlete of the year award.
