Cologne: More Heartbreak for Felix Auger-Aliassime

October rolls on in the Tennis world with events in Russia and Germany taking center stage. In St. Petersburg, Canadians Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov made semifinal runs but it was Andrey Rublev who cemented himself as a Top 10 player with his 4th title of the year. In Cologne, Felix Auger-Aliassime lost his 6th straight final, this time to Alexander Zverev. What does it mean for FAA going forward? Simon and Devang cover all that and more on a jam packed episode of Open Era!
