Roger Federer may be playing on the tour at the moment but he is still plugged into what’s going on in the ATP tour. After Felix Auger-Aliassime won his first ATP title at Rotterdam, he received a congratulatory message from Federer.

Auger-Aliassime confirmed this during an interview on Instagram. He said

Roger [Federer] sent me a little message. He just told me in English ‘I’m happy for you, well done.’

Prior to winning the Rotterdam title, Auger-Aliassime was 0-8 in tour-level finals. In those 8 finals, he did not win a single set. With his first title, pressure is off Auger-Aliassime‘s back. 

In an interview after the win, he said:

It is definitely a dream come true. It is something I have been working for and suffering for at times because we all know my story, having lost finals before, so this one is even more special for me.
