Frances Tiafoe had the great opportunity to play, albeit as an opponent, in Roger Federer’s last official match as a professional tennis player. A unique opportunity that the American made the most of, managing to take away the satisfaction of beating the Swiss, paired with his Spanish friend Rafael Nadal.
Despite the difficulties of facing two great champions of their caliber. with 42 Grand Slams in two, and a perhaps not optimal physical condition, Big Foe offered his performance and in the end he got the better of it together with Jack Sock .
Both Americans didn’t play to their full potential and didn’t give the 41-year-old Basel native the ultimate result-wise joy. At the end of the match, Tiafoe also took part in the big party to celebrate the career of the king, who did not stop crying so easily and really hugged everyone in the center of the court
Frances Tiafoe insulted on social media
For the American, the nasty surprise came at the end of the event, which ended very late at the O2 Arena in London.
In fact, many have begun to comment under the latest Instagram post of the number 19 in the world to threaten and insult him heavily on the final score of the double. According to many, the American had to make the Fedal duo win and this triggered the chain of very bad messages to Tiafoe’s address, identified as guilty.
A truly unpleasant situation, perhaps one of the very few negative notes of a magical and exciting evening for the whole movement, which greeted a great player but above all a wonderful person. “Respect the hierarchies; you are a clown!” Also: “You should have let him win,” “You will be the most hated player from today,” but also: “I hope you lose every game between now and the end of your career.”
These are some of the harshest comments Frances suddenly found on her wall social. Meanwhile, Tiafoe came back to the court on Saturday for the Laver Cup singles. He faced the last member of the Big Three Novak Djokovic..
