Chennai R1: Goffin def (7) Malisse 4-6 6-2 6-3

Malisse was feeling ill (stomach problems) and got a pill at the end of the second set. He was forced to play all or nothing tennis but still managed to make it competitive. Goffin plays beautiful tennis but didn't always play very intelligent against an obviously injured opponent.
Happy he closed it out though. WC brought to good use

Malisse

But if he had to lose, I'm glad Goffin beat him, I like how he plays, he has a bright future in this sport.
And also, no way Goffin is only 163cm tall (as the ATP says), at the net Malisse was only a little bit taller and he's 185..

No he's idd taller than 163, in an interview with his coach his coach already said it's stated wrong on the atp/itf-site. Don't know his exact height though.

Goffin

Great guy. Indian commentators seem to love him too.

Goffin has beautiful groundies of both wings. His forehand speeds up like Federer's and his backhand has a touch of Nalbandian. Funny he gets so much acceleration with so little height.

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”
