The American caught a lot of heat on social media after beating Roger Federer in his final career match with fans bombarding his profiles with hateful comments. Tiafoe was asked whether he will apologize to Federer for spoiling his night and the American said he won't:
"Absolutely not. I want to see him (Roger Federer) lit, but I'm not going to apologize to him. He's got a lot to apologize [for] the last 24 years after beating everybody on the tour."
He then further added:
"No, I won't apologize, but I will say thank you for having me in this amazing event, you know, what he's done for the game, also say thank you for what he did for the game. He's a class act. Happy to know him, happy to call him a friend, happy to call him a colleague, and best wishes in his second act. But I will not apologize."
Those comments certainly will spark more interesting reactions from fans but Tiafoe showed once again why he is beloved by the fans. He's unapologetically himself, always.
