FAA is a Grown MAN, Azarenka Topples Sabalenka, Tiafoe Comeback - Day 4 Recap and Results

It's late, lets do this! Felix Auger-Aliassime faced off against Andy Murray today. Some say that Murray is the comeback king, a fighter, a warrior. But tonight, FAA played to his potential. This 20 year-old Canadian, played like a grown man. He fired off a total of 24 aces and won 89% of his first serves. Not only that, he was taking advantage of a slower second serve from Andy Murray. Firing off ROCKETS all across the court. The kid had 54 aces in three sets... unreal win from the young Canadian star.

In the third WTA level event of 2020, Azarenka has found her momentum at the right time. In just over an hour, the 2x Grand Slam champion toppled fellow Belorussian Sabalenka in straight sets. Just off her win at this years Western and Southern Open, Azarenka looks confident hitting her groundstrokes and is showing that fearlessness that once allowed her to win her grand slam titles. Converting all five of her break point chances, Azarenka won the match with 58 total points won compared to Sabalenka's 36.

Last but not least, Frances Tiafoe put on a marathon performance against top Australian talent, John Millman. Millman, mainly known for his very impressive and hot match against Federer (which he won), has also been to known to go the distance in his matches. But, Tiafoe ended up coming back from a two set to one deficit and eventually won in just under four hours. This was "Big Foe's" second straight five set match at this years US Open, will face off against Marton Fucsovics who upset Grigor Dimitrov early today.
