David Goffin Has Won 5 Of His Last 7 Tournaments And 34 Of His Last 36 Matches!

David Goffin’s remains one of the hottest players on the ATP tennis circuit. After tearing up the summer winning 25 straight matches, the Belgian has continued that success in the fall. Today, Goffin beat Joao Sousa to win the Metz title, the second ATP-level title of his career.

But it’s also his fifth title in his last seven tournaments since Wimbledon (3 Challengers, 2 ATP)! During his recent run the 23-year-old has won 34 of his last 36 matches (including Challengers, qualifying), losing only to Jerzy Janowicz in the quarterfinals at Winston-Salem and to Grigor Dimitrov in the third round at the US Open.

Truth be told, he’s not exactly playing top competition. Just four of those 34 wins have come against Top 40 players, two of those coming this week in Metz where he beat No. 38 Sousa and No. 11 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

A year ago Goffin was out with a broken wrist. But after starting the season ranked No. 110, his title today will move him into the Top 35 for the first time and in position for seeding at the Australian Open in January.

“he’s not exactly playing top competition” Wat’s up with that aweful statement that discredits a good player achievement?
He is slowly building his game up after that injury;and he just beat Tsonga, and won a tourl level title.

Goffer? Who’s goffer?

RZ Says:

He was an exciting young prospect a couple of years ago. Hopefully this is a sign that he is going to live up to his potential.

Steve 27 Says:

The new GOAT!

Michael Says:

No doubt it is a fanatastic achievement. But, we have also have to see the competitiveness of the field. I have seen Goffin’s play and was quite impressed with the way he manoevures his shots on the ground and he has very few blemishes in his game. However, to strike big time, he needs something more and may be this new bout of confidence and momentum that he has managed to pick up would help him break right into the top. So, I wish him all the best. Tennis badly needs new talents like him as there is a big vacuum at the top and players like Cilic, Nishikori and Goffin can for sure ensure a fine churning in the top echelons of the sport.
