Auger-Aliassime learns from Aussie artist Yarramunua
Published Feb 13, 2021
Week 1 at the Australian Open for Felix Auger-Aliassime went as well as it could have. The Canadian has yet to drop a set in his first three matches and in his third round he managed to dismiss his countryman Denis Shapovalov to advance to the round of 16 for the first time.
It's not all business in Australia for the 20-year-old: he got to learn from renowned Australian artist Stan Yarramunua and see the process that goes into creating his beautiful paintings.
The Australian artist specializes in traditional Aboriginal art and Auger-Aliassime even tried his hand at crafting a painting while they chatted.
Auger-Aliassime is set to face qualifier Aslan Karatsev for a chance to reach the quarterfinals. The Russian qualifier also has yet to drop a set as his dream run continues.
