His parents are from Sierra Leone, but Francis Tiafoe, 16, is being talked about as the next big American tennis star. He has won the 18-and-under titles at the top two U.S. junior events, making him the first player to pull that off since John McEnroe in 1976. VOA's Mariama Diallo paid a visit to the young man who just returned from the French Open and is getting ready to play at Wimbledon next week.
