Frances Tiafoe qualified for her first Grand Slam semi-final: “It’s crazy”

“You beat Nadal and there confirm you in qualifying you for the semiswhat does it do ?
It’s crazy, it’s crazy. have signed the greatest victory of my life 48 hours agocome back and have another big win against Andrey (Rublev) who is a hell of a player, it’s a hell of a step forward. It’s hard to turn the page but I did it and now I’m in the semis. It was a very good performance. I played well, I served well. I was really aggressive. It was a pretty clean performance, not much to take away. I felt more comfortable today coming off the court than when I played against Rafa. I felt good and it showed in my performance.

You had an incredible decisive game in the second set (7-0)…
The best I’ve ever played (laughs). There was no break. I said to myself that it was really an important moment. I had no expectations other than winning it. On the first point, I figured I was going to hit my serve as hard as I could on the T and things started to fall into place and it all worked out for me. It was almost laughable, impossible to invent.

You seem particularly appreciated to play in front of this kind of stadium and with this kind of atmosphere, you know where that comes from?
I can’t really put my finger on the origin of this feeling. I just like playing in front of a full stadium. I feel like that’s what we train hard for, to show the world what we can do. Don’t be afraid of the show. I like to feel that people appreciate my efforts, see how many people I can get behind me. I just want to get on the court and try to give the crowd what they want, the win. »
