Goffin is consistent.

That's it.

There is nothing special about his play.

Tiafoe serve is the reason why he lost the match.

Goffin choking when up 4-3 40-0 in the third lol. I thought he'd surely bottle it after losing that game.

Still great showing by Frances, still so raw but very promising already.

I worry about Tiafoe's potentially physically more than anything else. He looked like he was limping a bit and very tired and we're talking the SECOND round of a BO3 tournament. at 18 that's not good

maybe he just needs to get stronger, I don't know.

Goffin solid as usual and looked ice cold in his final serving game and then into the tiebreak, just too solid

I agree with MarsManana, Goffin is nothing special.
Yes, I cannot agree more.
Worst thing for me, I had a rock solid bet on Tiafoe.
What pissed me off the most is when umpire overruled twice linensman calls.(silence)
The worst being 2nd call on a 2nd match point.He could have just stayed quite FFS (Imagine if this was some other place/player...)

Btw Goffin is just irritating tool.

Re: Indian Wells R2: David Goffin d. Frances Tiafoe 3-6 6-3 7-6(2) (saves 2 match poi

Average match riddled with unforced errors, but tension was palpable.
Tiafoe is a great shotmaker, but just short of being dubbed a ball basher. Kind of reminds me of Tsonga 2008 version. Very explosive!

As for Goffin, if it weren't for his on-court tennis IQ which is brilliant, he'd have lost the match. On paper, he shouldn't last against the big serving, big hitting kinds.
To his credit, he varied his shots consistently, avoiding feeding Tiafoe with too much pace (though he can generate loads of it off his forehand wing), and his variety with depth kind of frustrated Tiafoe on the long rallies. David, however will need to get himself a better serve ASAP and work on returning big servers (perhaps practice on the outside courts with Isner or hire Roddick for two weeks) if he wishes to keep his top -20 ranking, cause Tiafoe is gonna bulge up pretty soon, and things might not be this close then.

Compliment accepted

There's no way David's gonna beat big serving, big hitting Goliaths without irritating them.

AT 18 it's something that can be improved.

I had a hunch Tiafoe would make it tough for Goffin. Had no idea it would be that down to the wire.

Wow, that was close. Well done by Tiafoe here, just barely missing out. He's proving he's good enough to play these kind of tournaments already.

Followed until David went down 3-6 and then gave up on it. Glad to see David turned it around, but youngsters simply aren't good finishers. They never ever cause an upset, but sometimes they make it close.

Hopefully David had a good de-ruster.
