Goffin receives wildcard at 's-Hertogenbosch

How far can he go in this tournament considering the field is pretty average. mostly clay court players. His record is 2-1 on grass losing in the qualifiers last year in Wimbledon.
Record:
Q1 Lukas Rosol (CZE) 85 W 3-6, 6-3, 6-3
Q2 Uladzimir Ignatik (BLR) 160 W 3-6, 6-1, 7-5
Q3 Igor Sijsling (NED) 188 L 6-7(7), 3-6, 6-4, 5-7

Re: Goffin receives wildcard at 's-Hertogenbosch

A lot will depend on his draw. As of now, the field consists of Ferrer, Troitski, Haase, Melzer, Falla, Ferrero ... So I don't think the field is average as the OP claims. If he gets to the QF, it would be great. Anything more would be cream.

Re: Goffin receives wildcard at 's-Hertogenbosch

Expectations shouldn't be too high for him here. As we all know the confirmation of a good run is always very difficult, not to mention he isn't really an experienced grass court player. Good to get some grass play before Wimbledon, smart move. I am very curious what he Will do here.

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

Goffin has an all-court game, in my opinion, and I think he could win a match or two.

If you are worried about Gifitis do NOT go over to the women's equivalent of this site.

Re: Goffin receives wildcard at 's-Hertogenbosch

Not a great record on the surface in juniors, by the way: 5-3.

Wins over Kaczynski, Netuschil, Easton, Struff, Wachiramanowong.
Losses to Rufin, J. Jenkins and Thomas.

You can say that again

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
