The player hails from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, but spent his childhood years in the small town of L'Ancienne-Lorette. His father's name is Sam Aliassime.

People often think that the tennis star was adopted, but he was raised by loving biological parents, whom he remains close with.
Felix began training in tennis when he was just four years old. At the time, his father was a tennis instructor, so it was an easy choice. Sam coached Felix until he turned 12 years old.

In 2018, he made his ATP Tour debut and defeated Vasek Pospisil at Indian Wells. Felix's breakthrough season came in 2021, when he reached his first grand slam quarter-final at Wimbledon.
