Frances Tiafoe cheers on Instagram: «American tennis! We’re finally taking over this thing again.” What does world number 17 mean, who was eliminated in the third round in Melbourne? Sure, the excellent results of the US men and women at the Australian Open. But above all: the all-American quarter-final between Tommy Paul and Ben Shelton, which the former wins in four sets.

Paul is the first American tennis player in 14 years to advance to a men’s semifinals at Happy Slam. Andy Roddick last managed to do this in 2009. Paul ends a long dry spell that has meanwhile reached sad proportions. After Roddick was dead in terms of semi-final qualifications for men until 2017 and Sam Querrey in Wimbledon. The former tennis superpower had crashed. The last Grand Slam victories go back to Roddick (US Open) and Andre Agassi (Australian Open) – that was 20 years ago!
