Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

He may be playing qualifications at Casablanca/Houston next. David is provisionally #110 and will move up two more spots automatically next week. With Soderling and Ljubicic not playing the French, he's got a good chance of making the event without playing a tournament until the cutoff. But hopefully he can have a decent run next week and assure a position.

Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

He's playing Davis Cup this week. Next week he will just train to prepare for the clay season. So he won't get any more points before the FO cut-off...

Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

Well, that's fine. Even if he has to qualify at the French, he's proven that he can beat very quality players and maintain a good form for several matches at a time. His chances of making the MD depend on how everyone else does around him.

Now onto Davis Cup. GL to David and the rest of the team vs Great Britain! It's a road tie, but a very winnable one for the Belgians.

Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

I don't think it applies for competition that isn't in the World Group.

Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

well that's stupid

his scheduling does confuse me, i have to admit. If he has a chance to make the main draw of the french direct why not do it? take advantage of his good form and get the points

I understand wanting to play davis cup, i dont disagree with that but nothing after for a while?

Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

He's probably focused primarily on training and preparing the best he can for a different surface, since he'll be playing on indoor HC this week. And he's confident in his abilities. So he's setting himself up for the best possibly clay season rather than points chasing. I understand it. And if he gets into the French directly, it's an excellent bonus

Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

Great to see David making the most out of his first MD Slam entry, as a LL. Should win tomorrow and then, depending on how much he has still left physically a winnable 3th round. I think he showed himself to THE tennis world this Roland Garros already. Go David
