Tommy Paul has had an excellent tournament at the Australian Open and will face young Ben Shelton in the Quarter-Finals.
Paul has already beaten some of the best players of the world in Melbourne, including his compatriot Jenson Brooksby and Spaniards Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and Roberto Bautista Agut. After overcoming the fourth round against the 24th seed Bautista Agut in four sets, the 25-year-old said:
“Any time you play Bautista it’s going to be a war. So I was prepared for that match and I thought I executed really well today. It’s always fun playing on this court, I think it was my third time playing here and it’s always a blast.”
In Melbourne, the Americans have had excellent results, and the world No. 35 is one of them. Now he will face Shelton, which guarantees that at least one American will be in the top 4 of the major
“I think he [Shelton] was down two-sets-to-one when I came on court, so I had no idea who I would play if I won.”
“I’m really happy to be playing an American in the quarters. There’s going to be an American in the semis for sure, so I’m really excited for that, and hopefully you guys can come out and watch that one too.”, said Paul at the press conference.
