Great! Rank 167 conquered and the only was is up, he has nothing (like 10points) to defend in the next few months.

Wanna see him qualify for AO!

Fantastic player like Rochus,but i think the fact that hes just 1,62m tall will take him top20 chances in the future...

he is not 1.62 it just says so on the atp website i would say he is about 1.75-1.80

He's not 1,62m tall, he is higher at least for 10 cm.
ATP has wrong info on their web site.

He actually has only 9 points to defend until the start of Wimbledon!
Great groundies. Just hope he can serve some more first serves and he could be competitive (I'm not saying he'll win) with proly Tipsy in the next round

I looked it up because his mentioned height on the ATP website seems ridiculously tiny.

On this Belgian website (http://www.tennis-belge.be/nederlands/nljoueurs/nlgoffin.php), they say that he's 1,80 m

That can't be correct. He's a very tiny guy :shrug:

Above is a thread about his height. His coach claims that he is 1.8 meters and that is a pretty reliable source (see my link to a post by Henry Chinaski).

The other funny thing is that we were talking about the same issue last year in R2 of Chennai, when Goffin nearly beat Wawrinka.

He's definitely around the 5'8" mark. I saw him practice and walk by me at Wimbledon Qualies last year and there's no way on earth he was anything ridiculous like 5'4".

It also came up after his first round win a few days ago :lol:
I saw him handshaking with Malisse (who is 185cm tall) and thought he was only a bit shorter, but then I've been told he's like 175cm and in this thread a poster said he's shorter than 173 :lol:
Anyhow, I believe he's around 180cm trusting my own eyes and David's coach :D
