Felix Auger-Aliassime

The 22-year-old did not get off to a good start this season as he lost to Alexei Popyrin in the first round. Auger-Aliassime lost to Jiri Lehecka in the fourth round of the Australian Open.

The Canadian sensation went on to play in the ATP Rotterdam Open, a tournament he won last year. This time, his campaign ended in the quarterfinals, as he lost to 6th seed Daniil Medvedev in a one-sided contest. Medvedev won the match 6-2, 6-4. Auger-Aliassime is one of the contenders to win the Qatar Open. However, he will not want to be too overconfident against an opponent who has beaten him in the past.

Jason Kubler

The Australian star played in the Adelaide International 2 where he lost to Miomir Kecmanovic in the round of 16. In the Australian Open, Kubler reached the second round where he was ousted by Karen Khachanov.

Head-to-Head and Prediction

Jason Kubler has a 1-0 lead against Felix Auger-Aliassime in the head-to-head scoreline. He defeated the Canadian star in three sets 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 in the round of 16 of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.
