Francis Tiafoe of Riverdale Park will make his Association of Tennis Professionals Tour debut near his home. The 16-year-old tennis phenom will play Evgeny Donskoy on the Stadium Court in Washington tonight, sometime after 8 p.m. After Tiafoe won the Citi Open Wild Card Challenge in June, he was allowed to skip this weekend's qualifying tournament and receive a wild-card entry into the main draw. Tiafoe trains at College Park's Junior Tennis Champions Center and has competed in junior tournaments in and around D.C. "This is our tournament," said Tiafoe's coach, Misha Kouznetsov . "I think he's comfortable. It's incredible. We're pumped to be here. A lot of people will hopefully come watch him play." He is the No. 6-ranked junior boy in the International Tennis Federation. In June, he made it to the second round of the French Junior Open and third round of Wimbledon's Junior Championships.
