Kuala Lumpur 1R: Goffin (WC) def Ebden (WC)

Much needed win for Goffin.
Will probably get him back up high enough in the rankings to be able to enter the quali draw for the australian open.

Decent first set by Goffin: once there was a backhand backhand rally there was only gonna be one winner. Ebden served well and won a lot of points on the volley but in the rally he was in all sorts of problems.

beginning of the 2nd set: Ebden got a 3-0 lead and Goffin seemed not to move very well (not even running for dropshots), the trainer came on court at 4-1 and Goffin seemed to recover. At 5-3 Ebden had a chance to serve out the set but squandered it and he also had 4 or 5 set points on Goffin's serve on 6-5. These were almost all on second serve and he returned very poorly. He had no business losing that set.

Tie break was fun. Great passing by Goffin for 4-2 and some more errors from Ebden to hand the match over.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Goffin retire against Tursunov though but congrats!

What sort of injury does he carry? I wonder if has a chance against Tursunov given the not perfect shape of the russian.
