Norrie-Goffin face off in Wimbledon quarterfinal clash

David Goffin held a tight match to register a victory over Frances Tiafoe. After this win, Goffin reached the Wimbledon 2022 quarter-finals on Sunday.

The former World No 7 rallied in the final two sets to seal a 7-6(3), 5-7, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 win against the 23rd-seeded American on No 2 Court. Goffin also prevailed in the pa’r’s second-round meeting on the clay at Roland Garros just five-and-a-half weeks ago.

“It was an amazing battle, I had to stay mentally in the match the whole time. Just after the match point, I was mentally dead, because I had to stay fresh all the time to keep my serve, to fight to come back after losing the third set. It was a tough one,” said Goffin in his on-court interview after his four-hour, 36-minute triumph.

“It was an amazing atmosphere on this court, another epic match against Frances’ so I’m very happy to be in the quarter-finals again,” he added.

A topsy-turvy encounter saw both players break their opponent’s serve six times. It was Goffin who found one at the crucial time, however, sealing a decisive break in the 12th game of the fifth set to complete a memorable victory.

The 31-year-old’s opponent in the last eight this time around will be home hope Cameron Norrie, after the British No 1 downed Tommy Paul 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 to reach the quarter-finals at a Grand Slam for the first time.
