US Open: Rafael Nadal bows out as Frances Tiafoe wins sensation

Top seed Rafael Nadal has been knocked out of the ongoing US Open as he was defeated by American Frances Tiafoe 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Monday at the US Open to reach his second Grand Slam quarter-final.

The pumped-up 24-year-old played fearlessly throughout the three-hour, 31-minute thriller on Arthur Ashe Stadium to earn his third Top 5 win. Tiafoe hammered the ball off both wings and rallied from a break down in the fourth set to become the first American man to reach the last eight in New York since John Isner in 2018 and the youngest to accomplish the feat since Andy Roddick in 2006.

“I’m beyond happy, almost in tears, I can’t believe it,” Tiafoe said in his on-court interview.

“I played unbelievable tennis today. I really don’t know what happened.”

As for Nadal, his schedule for the rest of the year is unconfirmed. He will need time and practice to return to form and fitness. The serve has been concerning all tournament.
