Leylah Annie Fernandez

Leylah Annie Fernandez plays her knockout duel against Amanda Anisimova on Sunday at the Roland Garros tournament.

The Quebecer won 6-3 the first set of her duel against the 27th seed.

Fernandez won the last duel between the two players at Indian Wells last March, following Anisimova’s retirement.

On the men’s side, Felix Auger-Aliassime is also in action. He will play the knockout rounds against the king of clay, other than Rafael Nadal.

FAA is coached by Rafa’s uncle, Toni Nadal.

Auger-Aliassime, the 9th seed, doesn’t expect Toni to give him too much advice to defeat his nephew.

“Yes, we can say that he favors the family, but I think he just wants to watch the game with a neutral eye, a neutral position, which is quite normal,” FAA said.

“When we started working together, it was clear that it would be like this; I think it’s completely normal.”
