Although beaten by FÃ © lix Augerâ ???? Aliassime in the round of 16 of the US Open, Frances Tiafoe won the hearts of New York fans. Extremely generous on the court and a true showman, he revealed a magnificent anecdote during his last match on the Arthur Ashe court.
Â € œItâ € ™ s good to see the audience appreciating what you are able to do. Victory or defeat, I sometimes have the impression that it goes beyond a tennis match. I almost cried when I got off the court, not just because I had lost, but also because of the dose of love they had for me. shown when exiting the court. In the third set, four kids tell me “What is happening, you are my source of inspiration”. You are going to win and you are going to lose tennis matches, but in the end, that’s all that matters. That’s the reason I wake up everyday and do it all, because a kid will remember it. Parents spend their hard-earned money to put their child on a seat and watch. I want to give them a show.â ?? ¯Â »
