Frances Tiafoe: I never think any dream is too big, I see myself as top-10 player

USA's Frances Tiafoe is happy with his form as he hopes to climb up on the rankings list. Tiafoe, ranked at No. 53 in the world, achieved a career-high ranking of No. 29 in the world in 2019. At Wimbledon, Tiafoe stunned Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round before losing in the third round.

"I think I've been playing great tennis. Honestly, I've just got to keep staying at where I'm staying at. I've been winning a lot of matches lately, a lot more convincingly as well," Tiafoe said, per USTA.

"The rankings right now are obviously tough, as well [with the changed due to COVID-19]. They're not really showing how well you're actually playing. But I think everyone's in the same boat. I think if I can keep having more consistent weeks back to back, I'll be all right.

"It's not really about getting back to No. 29 in the world. I see myself as a Top 15, Top 10 guy. It's not really getting back to No. 29 in the world. I know I can do that. Being at the top of the game is what I'm focused on."

Tiafoe has big dreams

Tiafoe hopes to inspire a young generation of Americans to pick the racket and play tennis. "Obviously to keep playing as much tennis as you can, keep sticking to your progress every day, have goals.

When you achieve those goals, keep trying to strive for more. Yeah, I mean, never think any dream is too big. I think everything is achievable if you really put your mind to it. Ultimately, day to day, play as much tennis as you can and enjoy the game.

Those two things;" Tuafoe noted. "Hopefully we can see more Mid-Atlantic players on the tour. That's the plan." Tiafoe made his Olympic debut at the Tokyo Olympics. Tiafoe earned his maiden Olympic win in Tokyo as he beat Sonwoo Kwon before losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas.
