After winning his first career title in 2018 at the Delray Beach Open, Frances Tiafoe has only stayed strong this season, keeping within the Top 50 and reaching his first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the Australian Open. Here's a look at Tiafoe through his social media presence:
Tiafoe started his trek up the tennis ladder by winning his first Challenger title at Granby in the summer of 2016, defeating Marcelo Arevalo. This was his fourth Challenger final in five events, and it earned him a wildcard into the US Open.
Tiafoe would have to wait until 2018 to capture his first ATP title at the Delray Beach Open, beating Peter Gojowczyk in the final.
In the grass season that same year, Tiafoe went into Wimbledon defeating his first seeded opponent at a major, Fernando Verdasco, pushing him into the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time.
When Tiafoe isn't on the court, he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend Ayan Broomfield, a fellow tennis player who has taken the college route previously playing for the Clemson Tigers, but now playing with the UCLA Bruins. She has won two ITF doubles titles during her career.
Despite struggling with illness and injury since losing in the first round of the French Open, Tiafoe isn't quitting; instead he is continuing to hit the gym so he can showcase his best abilities for the US Open crowd later this month.
