A tennis fan at the US Open has become a viral hit on social media after she necked a pint of beer on the big screen -- and then repeated it in the same match.
Roberto Bautista Agut and Felix Auger-Aliassime were battling it out in their third-round US Open clash at the Louis Armstrong Stadium on Friday.
But the blonde tennis fan stole the show when she appeared on the jumbotron -- and she didn’t pass up the opportunity to make a lasting impression.
She promptly raised her hands in the air in delight before she downed her pint of larger on the first attempt, which was met with a roaring applause from fans inside the stadium.
However, the unnamed US Open fan once again returned to the spotlight when the cameras focused in on her during the fifth set of the match.
While she didn’t have a beer on hand with her this time around, she wasted no time in grabbing her friend’s drink and once again repeated the feat much to the cheers from fellow tennis fans.

One Twitter user wrote: “Standout moment of the US Open tennis so far!”
Someone else posted: “This is how you spice things up during a tennis match.”
While a third tweeted: “If he didn't propose to her right there, he's an idiot.”
A fourth added: “The things you see at the US Open... players say it's one of the best places to play, and you can see why.”
And a fifth said: “She did this twice. I can dig it. Spice up tennis a bit.”
One of the fan’s successful attempts to down the pint was posted on the US Open’s Twitter page, which has racked up more than 140,000 views at the time of this writing.
Auger-Aliassime defeated Agut 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-3 and will now face Frances Tiafoe in the next round of the US Open on Monday.
