Sometimes, someone just needs to be complimented. In this edition of Compliments from Cincinnati, American players give fellow countrymen their best compliment about them, sometimes with a sly grin.
The American stars included Madison Keys, Jessica Pegula, Sloane Stephens, Frances Tiafoe, and Jennifer Brady. Pegula complimented Tiafoe, but also threw a little shade at the 23-year-old.
“My compliment for Frances Tiafoe is that he has just the cheesiest, most lovable personality, even if you’re mad at him. He will just flash the grin. He could be 20 minutes late and you’re just like ‘Oh, it’s okay’,” she said.
Some other compliments included Brady loving Steve Johnson’s mustache and Keys calling Tommy Paul’s 80’s Oakley sunglasses “a look and a choice.”
