22 time huge homerun champion Rafael Nadal was vexed in the fourth round of the US Open

on Monday by American Frances Tiafoe at Arthur Ashe Arena in Flushing, New York.

In a match that endured over 3 hours and 30 minutes, the Maryland local crushed Nadal 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Tiafoe, 24, is the most youthful American man to get this far in the US Open since a then-24-year-old Andy Roddick was a finalist in 2006.

"It was certainly quite a presentation," he said following the match. "I played all around well today.

Definitely, I surmise, I mean, I just got out there and I just accepted I could make it happen.

 It helps I played multiple times." Prior in the competition, Tiafoe said he was glad to be going generally inconspicuous.

After his success Monday, he communicated bliss for how his triumph against Nadal 

affected his folks, who moved to the US from Sierra Leone.

"I just had a major energy for the game. Not even fundamentally for me, yet to do it for them.
