Carlos Alcaraz and Frances Tiafoe engaged in a high-level, high-energy spectacle of a back-and-forth semifinal at the U.S. Open

One exchange between the two men featured so many "What?! How?!" moments that it filled Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Before it was over, the audience rose to their feet and stayed there to celebrate while watching a replay on the video screens.

Ultimately, Alcaraz received enough victories, and Tiafoe's racket was to blame for a disproportionate number of errors.

Alcaraz entered his first Grand Slam final by surging, giving himself a chance to become No. 1 at the age of 19.

by defeating Tiafoe on Friday night at Flushing Meadows with a score of 6-7 (6), 6-3, 6-1, 6-7 (5), 6-3.

There was such a buzz. The tennis, after all, more than lived up to the hype of the game.

Unrealistic shot-making, accomplishments, extension of points, and crazy shots... frantic times, Tiafoe claimed. Yes, I was becoming agitated.

Alcaraz appeared to take charge by winning nine out of ten games in a row,

However, 26th-ranked Tiafoe saved it and started screaming, adding expletives for emphasis.

I'm risking everything for you! Soon after that, Tiafoe was advancing to a U.S. Open-record 8-0 in tiebreakers and forcing a fifth set.

Thanks for Watching
