Frances Tiafoe talked about his desire to win the US Open this year.
The 25-year-old athlete was interviewed by ESPN and revealed that his biggest ambition during this season is to lift the US Open, a Grand Slam where he is the home favorite and had a great performance in 2022, reaching the semifinals.
On that occasion, he defeated Diego Schwartzman in the third round, Rafael Nadal in the round of 16, and Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals. The American ended his dream run in the semifinals against Carlos Alcaraz in a five-set battle against the Spanish player who went on to win his first Grand Slam trophy.
"It's going to give me goosebumps," said Frances Tiafoe about his expectations for the 2023 US Open. "I'm already really excited. I want to win the US Open this year and I'm going to give everything I've got for that event."
The world number 11 entered the top 30 in March of last year and since then has remained within the best players in the world, ascending consistently in the rankings, and is on the verge of entering the top 10 for the first time in his career at 25 years old.
"I feel like I've got three legitimate chances every year, at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, the U.S. Open… the French Open is always going to be a tough one for me," he said. "I can compete against the best players in the world, I can beat the best players in the world, I have, now it's a matter of doing it when it counts, over two weeks and back-to-back," said 'Big Foe'.
Tiafoe was surprised by the Argentine Pedro Cachín in the second round of the Madrid Open and his next challenge will be at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia Rome where he is the 11th seed.
