Auger-Aliassime seemed ecstatic after defeating Federer and people heaped praise on the lad on social media.
According to his bio on the ATP website, Auger-Aliassime in 2019 became the youngest tennis player to be in the top 25 in the world in 20 years. While he hasn't won a grand slam title (yet), he's well on his way to becoming a star.
He is currently ranked 21st in the world. Auger-Aliassime will continue his title bid at the Noventi Open in the next round.
In a new poll by the Angus Reid Institute, over half of Quebec respondents said that Canada should reach a vaccination rate of at least 75% before opening the U.S. border.
With many Canadians already envisioning a life post-COVID-19, the poll found that a "vast majority (69%)" are willing to wait it out until "at least three-quarters" of the country are fully vaccinated before opening the border to travel.
Only 22% of Canadians would be willing to open the Canada-U.S. border immediately, according to the survey.
Thirty-five percent of Quebec respondents agreed that the country should wait until over 75% of the population has two vaccine doses. Thirty-seven percent agreed that having 75% of the population fully vaccinated is adequate.
Only 20% of Quebec respondents agreed that the borders should open immediately.
Respondents in Alberta and Saskatchewan were the most interested in welcoming back Americans, according to the poll, as 42% and 30% of respondents, respectively, want the border to open immediately.

Constructed in the 1930s, 3991 chemin du Mont-Sauvage contains a literal piece of Quebec's history, he said, as it's been reinforced with a steel beam salvaged from the Duplessis Bridge in Trois-Rivières, which tragically collapsed in 1951.
The house did have walls enclosing the washroom, plus many others for bedrooms and the kitchen when it was home to a family of six from 1960 to 2018, he said, but Paradis chose to knock them down in favour of a loft-style design to maximize the space: "The open bath in front of a fire is magical."
The property also boasts a nine-foot hand-dug basement with exposed stone walls, a central wood stove in the "living-kitchen-dining area," and 51,000 square feet of land complete with a mature forest, apple trees, rose bushes, a detached garage and outhouse.
