Frances Tiafoe 'proud' of performance against Roger Federer

After pushing Roger Federer to the brink Tuesday, 19-year-old American Frances Tiafoe said he was “proud” of his performance.

“I always wanted to play the best in the world, and I hoped I would be ready for it and give my best stuff no matter who I was against,” Tiafoe said (via the New York Post ) after his five-set thriller against Federer in the first round of the U.S. Open.

Tiafoe, ranked 70th in the world, said he would be “thinking about this one for a while.”

“Obviously I’m not satisfied,” he said. “But to play that way gives me a good feeling.”
