A US OPEN tennis fan has gone viral after her beer chugging exploits.
The woman downed her cup of lager with aplomb twice after spotting herself on the big screen.
After realising the eyes of the crowd at Flushing Meadows were on her during the third round match between Felix Auger-Aliassime and Roberto Bautista Agut, the fan celebrated by raising her arms.
The woman decided she needed to keep everyone entertained and started to finish her beer.
She managed to down the rest of her drink although a few drops went awry as they dribbled down her chin.
But the cameras on the Louis Armstrong Stadium court returned to zone in on her during the fifth and final set.
The fan was well prepared again and chugged down her beer for the second time to the delight of the crowd.
One tennis commentator said: "She's going in again," and added "Well done" after completing her drinking session.
Her beer guzzling antics have sparked a social media frenzy with more than 140,000 views on the US Open's Twitter page.
