American tennis star Frances Tiafoe is known for his aggressive style of play and sense of humour in the men’s tennis world. Moreover, there is always a group of fans in the queue to watch 23-year-old’s on-court laughable and amusing activities. However, the 6.2 feet man admitted that he wants people to remember his play after they went home. 

Tiafoe now plays at the Vienna Open 2021. Therein, he reached the quarterfinals after upsetting top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas amid the Austrian crowd applause. 

“You’ve got fans going nuts early in the match. I want to play. I want to be out there, I want to give it my all. You’ve got little kids screaming ‘Big Foe’ and that’s what it’s about,” Tiafoe said in the post-match interview. 

“I Just Love Playing In A Packed House” – Frances Tiafoe

A man from Florida continued, “It’s almost irrelevant who you’re playing. Obviously, I want to beat Stefanos and these guys, it’s always good to have on the resumé. It’s been great.”

“I just love playing in a packed house. I feel at home. I feel like that’s what it’s about,” Tiafoe added. 

“The result is almost irrelevant sometimes. You have kids coming out, parents bring these kids out, pay their hard-earned money to come to watch me play.”

“I want people to have fun just like I’m having fun… I feel it’s my duty to ‘A’, bring it, give it my all, but also to make sure everyone has fun.” 

“That kid at the top of the stadium, I want them to go home remembering [they] watched Frances Tiafoe play and [they] had a great time.”

In the quarterfinals of Erste Bank Open 2021, Frances Tiafoe meets No.8 seed, Diego Schwartzman. Argentine leads American 2-0 in their head-to-head series.
