The guy is only 19? Well, he's got time to fine tune that game.
Got to be patient. Too many easy errors.

6-2 6-1
ref should call off the match. There should be such rule.
Need to win at least 10 games to deserve a 4th set.

Tiafoe showed all his potential in that first set. She got something to build on.
No shame. I like his best game.. He's got to learn to keep steady.

Did he figure it out? You got to keep the ball on Federer's backhand to beat him.
He can't hurt you from there. That was working in the first set.
If he can continue with that strategy, he will give himself a chance. Stay away from Fed's forehand.

he gives Fed an easy break... 2 stupid errors and the match is out of his hand..
Just keep it simple... keep looping the balls to his backhand safely.. He can't hurt you.. It's obvious.
well, hope his coaches teaches him how to stay in point. Federer tries nothing fancy until he got an opening. He doesn't even try to hit winner on second serve.. He just slices it back.

Tiafoe beats himself with UEs ... This 19-yo has potential.. but makes some crucial lazy errors like that stupid drop shot to give away a game in that 5th set and go down a break.
then se manages to get back.... but 2 UEs at the end and he is out.
Se had a chance to win this match. Federer got lucky.

Tiafoe didn't win but he's now on the map in my view, following his defeat of hot favorite Alex Zverev only last week.

I watched Federer last night more than I have in the past ... 10 years. Never been a fan of his game.
This 19-yo has so much potential and should have won that match.
Federer survived slicing and dicing.. When TiaFoe was not gifting silly points, he was the best player in that match IMHO.
Fed's game has never been the kind I will turn on a match for. Smile I know he got like 99 slams but ...
I prefer Wawrinka, Verdasco, Paire, Serena, Aiava, Cilic, Julia Gorgeous, players that hit the ball when you put it in front of them, either on the left or the right. It's a risky game but that's my preference.

The young players that have adopted that style have hard time moving up in the ranking because they gift many matches they should win.... making UEs at crucial time like Tiafoe did yesterday.
But I get more excited watching players hitting winners on both sides... If I were a tennis player, that's the game I would play. Smile
the Federer, Nadal, Murray, Svitolina, Wozniacki, Radwanska, don't cut it for me. They put me to sleep. Smile
I watched A.Zverev the other day.. And the groundies were safe and slow, just like Fed... He should have lost that much too... But his opponent was gifting him bunch of free points. Not impressed.
Give me Wawrinka, Serena and Benoit Paire any time. Even when they lose, they get me excited. !!!!

Can he now swing freely with all eyes on him? That remains to be seen.

Would have been a good question had he finish off Federer yesterday.. There are a few shots he just pushes loosely to gift easy UEs.. Can't do that.
Fed just spins the balls back and wait for the errors or until he has an open, easy put away.
