David Goffin beats Roger Federer with a come-from-behind victory
By Hu Shichen
David Goffin reached the single’s final at the ATP World Tour Finals in London with a come-from-behind victory over Roger Federer on Saturday.
Federer, the Swiss maestro, was a big favourite to claim the end-of-season crown, particularly with Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic absent, and with the early withdrawal of world number one Rafael Nadal from the tournament. But Goffin, who had taken just two sets off Federer in six previous meetings, came from a set down to record a stunning 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 win.
A commanding Federer breezed through the first set in just 33 minutes, breaking twice and serving out to love with an ace. But what had looked like a mismatch turned out to be anything but, as Goffin turned the tables with an early break in the second. Federer made some unforced errors during the second set, Goffin served out to love to force the match into final set.
