Frances Tiafoe has been with girlfriend Ayan Broomfield for over eight years.

The pair met as young tennis players but continued their relationship despite great challenges of distance.

Tiafoe became the first Black American man to reach the US Open semifinals since Arthur Ashe in 1972, and a year later, in June 2023, he was one of the world’s top ten players.

Broomfield marked the important occasion with a carousel of images commemorating Tiafoe’s numerous exploits throughout the years.

“TOP 10 IN THE WORLD!” she wrote in a celebratory Instagram post. “I started taking screenshots of different moments and accomplishments a few years ago in anticipation of this day. I can’t post them all but I think this tells the story pretty well. I am so proud of you.”

Tiafoe showed his love for her in turn: “Man to think how far we’ve come. 2015 meeting you for the first and also just starting my career. Youve rocked with me thru it all. The good the bad and the standstills. It’s been a ride no one can put into words.”

He concluded: “You mean more to me than you can ever imagine. I love you with all I got.”

Broomfield was born 13 August 1997, in Ontario, Canada. She spent her youth in Canada before relocating to the United States to continue her tennis career at Clemson University in South Carolina.

Broomfield spent two years playing tennis at Clemson University. During that time, she was named the ACC Freshman of the Year and the ITA Carolina Region Rookie of the Year. After her second year at Clemson, Broomfield chose to transfer to UCLA.

Broomfield and her doubles partner Gabby Andrews won the NCAA doubles championship in 2019 as seniors at UCLA. UCLA won their seventh NCAA doubles championship in school history with Broomfield’s triumph.

Before starting college, Broomfield made her WTA debut at the Coupe Banque Nationale in 2014, competing in the doubles with Maria Patrascu. The rookie duo had a tremendous year, finishing ranked 467 in the world.

Broomfield then focused her time and efforts on her singles career.

Despite being together for over a decade, the pair hasn’t revealed many specifics about how they met. However, according to Tiafoe’s Instagram, their anniversary is 8 September 2015. Tiafoe wrote a loving message to Broomfield in honour of their four-year anniversary, accompanied with a photo of them suited up for a night out.

“​​Happy Fourth year anniversary babes. Damn time went craaazzyyy quick. We been datin datin 😂😂😂,” he wrote on Instagram. “Love you deep sexy. You one crazy chick 😂😂 but couldn’t imagine being with anyone else 💕💕❤️❤️💕.”

Broomfield’s outstanding tennis abilities have led him fascinating opportunities off the court. She was given the opportunity to be a body double for Saniyya Sidney, the actress who played Venus Williams in King Richard. While on site, Broomfield met Will Smith, who played her character’s father, and Serena Williams.

Her experience as a tennis player proves valuable for Tiafoe to mull things over and have a sounding board when thinking about his draw.

“We can talk about tennis. I mean, I played tennis myself. So even just when we’re seeing the draw, and we kind of look at certain players, sometimes I can act as a sounding board for matches,” she said.

“I just feel like we just understand it and what it takes for someone to go and be able to compete at the highest level,” Broomfield added.
