”I do enjoy travelling a lot. It’s beautiful to have this life where I can travel and meet different people and experience different cultures,” said Auger-Aliassime to ATP Uncovered. “I enjoy going around and seeing the attractions of different cities and maybe learning more, discovering more… There’s so much to do when you travel.”

But how sharp is Auger-Aliassime when it comes to packing for his next trip? The No. 9 player in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings shared some of his travel essentials in this edition of ATP's Next Stop: Travel Like A Pro series.

"I’m always listening to music or watching movies, so I really need those in my bag at all times. When I’m travelling, sometimes you want to relax and fall asleep, so I listen to relaxing music. I like to listen to chill piano."

"I usually download movies, TV shows and documentaries before I travel because sometimes there’s no TV on the flights. You don’t know if you’re going to actually have something to watch."

"I don’t use it when I’m travelling, but I use it in my hotel room or if we rent a house and I want to listen to some music. I always travel with a speaker. As you guessed, music is an important part of my life."

"I’m actually wearing contacts now, but it’s not good if I keep my contacts on for too long. If I’m travelling overseas on a long flight, I’ll take my contacts off and travel with my glasses, then take them off if I want to sleep."

"I have this classy watch that’s for evenings, so I like to keep it in the case. I have another one that’s really special to me because it’s a Montreal Grand Prix special edition. When they came out with it, I really wanted one because it’s from my home city."
