With a title on the line is where team Canada played their best tennis at the ATP Cup. Felix Auger-Aliassime clinched the crown for his team with a solid 7-6 (3), 6-3 score against Roberto Bautista Agut on Sunday. Not only did Canada manage to grab their first ATP Cup title, but they did so by defeating two-time finalist Team Spain.

With so much to celebrate, the winning team headed out to sea with their new hardware.


Auger-Aliassime was joined by teammates Denis Shapovalov and Steven Diez for a morning photoshoot on a boat in the Sydney harbor. The three set sail and posed for cameras with their country's flag in front of the Sydney Opera House. The shoot was at 10 a.m. and Shapovalov's flight to Melbourne was at 11 a.m., but he couldn't miss the affair. In the end, the world No. 14 still made his flight time and documented it all on his Instagram story.

Team Canada started their campaign with a 3-0 loss to the United States, but quickly rebounded with victories over Germany and Great Britain in the group stage. The amazing week saw Auger-Aliassime jump two ranking spots and he now sits at world No.9—a career-best for the 21-year-old. He's also the standalone fifth-highest-ranked Canadian in either ATP or WTA rankings history.


"As the week went on I think we played some really good matches and we got more and more belief," said Auger-Aliassime. "But I think the trust and the belief never went away the whole week for everybody on the team," Auger-Aliassime told press.

Teamwork definitely makes the dream work.
