Felix Auger-Aliassime Makes Appearance at Dior Fashion Event in Paris
Canadian tennis player Felix Auger-Aliassime, who became an ambassador for the French fashion company two months ago, made an appearance at the Dior Homme Spring/Summer 2024 event in Paris. He joined fellow young star Emma Raducanu, who signed a contract with Dior shortly after her victory at the 2021 US Open.
The world No. 12 was invited to the Dior Homme Spring/Summer 2024 showcase by Kim Jones, the creative director of Dior Men’s fashion. Auger-Aliassime walked the runway at the Dior Men’s Summer 2024 fashion show, dressed in an elegant suit. He also shared photos of the event on his social media.
Despite his involvement in the fashion world, Auger-Aliassime has had a challenging year on the tennis court. Injuries have prevented him from reaching the level of success that saw him rise to world No. 6 in 2022.
His last consecutive wins came at the 2023 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, where he reached the quarterfinals before losing to Carlos Alcaraz over three months ago. In the race to qualify for the ATP Finals, he is currently ranked outside the top 30.
Having not played since the French Open, where he was defeated in the first round by Fabio Fognini (4-6, 4-6, 3-6), Auger-Aliassime will enter Wimbledon without any grass court preparation matches. Although he was initially entered to play at the Halle Open, Canadian withdrew before his debut match against Dominic Thiem due to a knee injury.
As the 11th seed at Wimbledon, Auger-Aliassime will have the advantage of avoiding any player ranked within the top 16 at least in the early rounds of the tournament.
