Watch: Fan Sets Cold Gold Standard at US Open

The US Open is the nation's biggest tennis celebration.

Fans are playing their part pumping up the party.

After Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz stunned third-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas, he credited the raucous Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd for helping him get over the finish line. Hours later, fellow 18-year-old Leylah Fernandez dethroned defending champion Naomi Osaka the Canadian left-hander thanked fans for inspiring her to a massive upset.

"[The crowd] made a huge difference," Fernandez said. "Thanks to New York and New York fans over here they helped me get a win."

On Louis Armstrong Stadium, one fan's skill draining the joy juice earned her a rousing reaction from the crowd during Felix Auger-Aliassime's five-set win over Roberto Bautista Agut on Louis Armstrong Court.

Every time she drained a beer, fellow fans erupted in cheers. US Open sponsors Heineken or Grey Goose should seriously consider this fan as a brand ambassador. 

Fans figure to keep the party pumping tonight.
