Frances Tiafoe is having a dream week at the Australian Open.

The American youngster continued his giant-killing spree by ousting 20th seed Grigor Dimitrov to make a Grand Slam quarter-final for the first time in his career.

And, he couldn’t control his emotions during the courtside interview.

“It means the world. I worked my a*s off man,” a sobbing Tiafoe said winning 7-5 7-6 6-7 7-5.

“I told my parents 10 years ago [that] I was going to be a pro and change their life and my life.”

Moving on though, Taifoe has been handed a mountainous task as he is scheduled to lock horns with world No. 2 Rafael Nadal.

“I can’t do anything, his is going to run me like crazy. I gotta go to sleep now,” he said of the Spaniard.

Not that he’s not going to give it his all on Tuesday. “He would better get ready,” Tiafie warned.

Nadal, are you listening?
