16 May Player To Watch
Every once in a while you catch lightning in a bottle. Young athletes flash what they are capable of given the right circumstances at any moment. Some just have what we call the “It” factor. Frances Tiafoe could very well be on his way to becoming the next big thing in the tennis world. Being that he just turned pro, Tiafoe still has a lot to learn at that level. While his junior accomplishments aren’t anything to be scoffed at either. Winning the very same Orange Bowl International Tennis Championship that Nadal and Murray won at the age of 15. Making him the youngest to accomplish that feat. This kid is also a great entertainer on the court. He’s also managed to catch the eye of Jay Z’s Roc Nation Agency putting him with the likes of Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant and Victor Cruz just to name a few. Frances also managed to be the first and only tennis player on the Roc Nation roster. I’m very excited to see what the future has in store for this young man.
