David Goffin vs Roger Federer
David Goffin will play against Roger Federer in the round of 16 in the Shanghai – Masters and we got covered tennis tips tonight on the Masters. The game is on Thursday, 10 October and will not start before 10:30 UK.
David Goffin world number 14 started the Masters in Shanghai from the first round where his opponent was Richard Gasquet but he managed to win 6-2, 6-3 after making 10 aces and won 78% of his 1st serve points. In the second round, the player from Belgium faced Mikhail Kukushkin and won 6-2 the first set and lead 3-0 games in the second and Kukushkin retired. Before flying to China Goffin played in Tokyo and after three wins played against Djokovic in the semifinal but lost in 2 sets and we can’t blame him because Nole won 87% of his 1st serve points and with one break in each set won the match and later the tournament.
Roger Federer world number 3 started from the second round and won against Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-2, 7-6(5) and the Swiss with 80% 1st serve and 91% 1st serve points won he gave no chance to his Spanish opponent to make a break. Before the Masters Roger played on Laver Cup and won both his matches against Nick Kyrgios and John Isner at home in Geneva. There is no sign of his injury so far which lead to a loss in the quarterfinal in the US Open from Grigor Dimitrov in 5 sets after Federer lead with 2-1 but then we all saw that he was not very comfortable on the court and at the end lost from the first time from “Baby Fed”.
Goffin and Federer faced each other 10 times and the Swiss won 9 of the games. The only win of David was in London in ATP finals and he beat him 2:1 in the semifinal but then lost the title from Grigor Dimitrov. Their latest match was in the US Open and the Maestro won easily 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 and they had one more match in 2019 in the final in Halle on the grass where Federer grabs the title so I expect another victory for Roger with straight sets given the result in the Grand Slam.
