Default Roland Garros R1: [LL] Goffin def. [23] Stepanek 6-2 4-6 2-6 6-4 6-2

David was down a break in the fourth and fifth sets.

A true lucky loser, broke 9 times and had 30 break points on Steps' serve. Only served at 47% himself but won 55% of return points the final two sets, as Stepanek served poorly in both sets. Got into the MD, and took advantage of a very advantageous draw. First slam win for the talented young Belgian!

Goffin will make the most out of his luck
3rd round is a must, 4th round is a possibility

AWESOME. Way to put up a fight and not give up when down a break in fourth set. Now let's see if David takes advantage of this draw, beats Clement and maybe makes it to the 4th round.

He was down the early break in the fifth set as well. He was also supposedly cramping, Goffin, and then Stepanek started cramping. So seems like we missed an entertaining match here.

Awesome win! If he had won in 3 or 4 I would have said 4th is very possible but the cramping is not a good sign and it may be true that he is not ready yet physically for consecutive best of 5 matches. Anyway, Great win, nice match to enter top 100 and he should enjoy it.

I think this is his first 5 set match ever, so it's great to see he got through.
