Miami Rd 3: Goffin def Troicki 6-1 6-1

GOATfin mode In the zone, babyface!

But Viktor was horrible. He resisted bagels in both sets, so Goffin had to forcefeed him breadsticks

Hilarious outcome.

In form Goffin vs in form Verdasco should be a good match.

So not to be one-up by his doubles buddy Goffin decided to give one less game to his opponent per set compared to Thiem.

Both, but mainly Trashki.

Goffin has a great chance to reach the semis just like last week.

Always good for tennis when a well known dope like Troicki loses.

Just adding Verdasco needs to save the sport against this boring pusher next round.

Wow Goatfin, hitting the ball so well. Troicki was clueless. I'm glad he's breezing through these early rounds, has a great chance at another Masters SF. Go Muffin!

How is Goffin a pusher? He plays quite similar to Davydenko, is quite small and doesn't have any huge weapons but times the ball well and takes time away from his opponents. He's a very naturally talented player.

Juan Martin Del Potro - Nick Kyrgios - Roger Federer - Dominic Thiem

It was just a comment using MTF's terminology.

He's basically a very solid and boring baseliner. All he does is to stay in the baseline hitting the ball to one side and another, pretty much at the same pace every time. That's why he's always badly exposed by the top players.

Of course he takes the ball early, it's his only chance against physically stronger players than him (like 95% of the ATP field).

I wonder how such a talented player has so much trouble to capitalize on short balls when he needs to use his own pace and also to finish points at the net.
