An unreal comeback went down last night at Arthur Ashe Stadium with unseeded American Shelby Rogers taking down the number 1 ranked player in the world Ashleigh Barty in 3 dramatic sets. Not only did she win the match, but Rogers had to come back from down two breaks (2-5) in the 3rd to pull it off. Doing that against Ash Barty? No fucking shot. The 43rd ranked player in the world's reaction said it all…

Such a great post match interview too. Impossible not to love that energy and pure shock. Pretty sure she woke up today still in disbelief. 

Shelby Rogers is an extremely likable person who just had the moment of her life. While Reilly Opelka, Frances Tiafoe, and Jenson Brooksby have found their way into the men's round of 16, only Rogers represents USA on the women's side. Keep it going Shelby!

Barty and Rogers ran into each other on their way to their press conferences and had a cool moment.
