On Saturday, she drove Romania's world number one Simona Halep to distraction at Wimbledon, using her Pandora's box of drop shots, lobs, slices and wristy winners to claim a memorable 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 win on a mesmerised Court One to reach the last 16.
It will be Hsieh's first appearance in the last 16 of a Slam where she will face Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia for a place in the quarterfinals.
That set up a clash with a Lara Arruabarrena, the world #88 from Spain, who was looking to reach the third round at Wimbledon for the first time in her career. "I know she (Halep) is going to fight really hard, so I know I need to try to be stronger than normal mentally".
"I'll go and watch some football - England, it's coming home or not?" he said in reference to a football song which is being sung, hummed and whistled on nearly every street and in every pub.
"She deserved to win", added the Romanian.
She faulted on her first serve, stepped away from the baseline, motioned to the crowd for some encouragement, and then served a slow, nearly flat second serve into the middle of the box.
"Body just didn't feel right", Tiafoe said.
As for the two last lopsided sets, Tiafoe said he "gave everything I was able to do". Halep, as though she was caught completely off-guard by the lack of any complexity in the serve, hit it straight into the net.

Hsieh faced a tough first round match up against the 30th seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, but after a battle lasting over two hours the Chinese advanced to the second round a 6-4 4-6 6-3 victor.
"I just believe that I was not very positive on court", Halep said.
"I was leading the match, I was up, and I couldn't finish it", Halep said. Halep is a defensive counter-puncher first and foremost, using her excellent agility and court coverage to stay in points for far longer than virtually any other player on Tour would be able to. Of the top 10 seeds, only seventh-seeded Karolina Pliskova has survived into the second week and the Czech is already in deep water, having never previously gone beyond the second round here.
Making her fourth appearance at Wimbledon, Ostapenko will look to improve on her run to the quarter-final previous year.
