Auger-Aliassime, who was already the youngest Challenger finalist since Stefan Kozlov in 2014, defeated world no. 171 Mathias Bourge of France 6-4, 6-1 in the final of the 64 000 € tournament.
 
Auger-Aliassime’s victory means that three Canadians have won a title on the ATP Challenger Tour this season, a first since 2013. Denis Shapovalov won the Drummondville National Bank Challenger in March and Vasek Pospisil was crowned champion of the Busan Challenger last month.
 
Auger-Aliassime will look to keep his win streak going this week at the Internationaux de tennis de Blois. He will face France’s Gianni Mina in the first round.
