Malisse was feeling ill (stomach problems) and got a pill at the end of the second set. He was forced to play all or nothing tennis but still managed to make it competitive. Goffin plays beautiful tennis but didn't always play very intelligent against an obviously injured opponent.
Happy he closed it out though. WC brought to good use

Malisse :hysteric:

But if he had to lose, I'm glad Goffin beat him, I like how he plays, he has a bright future in this sport.
And also, no way Goffin is only 163cm tall (as the ATP says), at the net Malisse was only a little bit taller and he's 185..

No he's idd taller than 163, in an interview with his coach his coach already said it's stated wrong on the atp/itf-site. Don't know his exact height though.

Goffin has beautiful groundies of both wings. His forehand speeds up like Federer's and his backhand has a touch of Nalbandian. Funny he gets so much acceleration with so little height.

Good win form Goffin, Malisse always a slow starter in the season isn't he?

Not really. He was a finalist here last year against Wawrinka and reached the third round at the Australian Open. ;)

Inspite of Goffin`s age it`s too early yet to mean that. Darcis has a bit more to do as the Belgian Nº1 when Malisse and Ollie retires. Hopefully Bemelmans will wake up before he retires too :)
