Auger-Aliassime, seeded ninth in the major tennis tournament, fired eight aces and converted on five of 10 break points in a dominating display on the clay at Roland Garros.
It’s the first time in the 21-year-old Canadian’s career that he has advanced past the second round in Paris.
Auger-Aliassime’s next match is Thursday against either Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic or Croatia’s Borna Gojo.
Two other Canadians were also scheduled to see action Wednesday at the French Open.
Montreal’s Leylah Fernandez, seeded 17th on the women’s side, will play Czech Katerina Siniakova, while Bianca Andreescu will meet No. 14 seed Belinda Bencic of Switzerland.
