David Goffin beats Dominic Thiem, faces Roger Federer semifinal clash

David Goffin beats Dominic Thiem

Neither Dominic Thiem nor David Goffin had had an impressive run thus far in the ATP World Tour Finals. But Friday was the day to make it count; the winner would progress to the semifinals on Saturday, while the loser would go home.

After Goffin’s absent Wednesday evening performance, Thiem was the marginal favourite. But the Belgian — still with heavily strapped left knee — fought to a straight sets 6-4, 6-1 victory.

“It was difficult to play against Dominic, such a close friend and such a nice guy. But in the end, I was really happy about the way I played the match, I was really nervous towards the end of the match,” Goffin said in his on-court interview after the match.
