[3] Roger Federer -03- (SUI) def [15] David Goffin -15- (BEL)

Match recap from Arthur Ashe Stadium announcer Andy Taylor.

Earlier this Summer in Halle, David Goffin took Roger Federer to a set-1 tiebreak in the championship match, then faded – winning only a single game the rest of the way.

Today, Goffin couldn’t find his rhythm at all.

From ball-up, both struggled to land first serves. Goffin broke before the first changeover, but needed 4 break-points to convert. Meanwhile, Federer was automatic – converting nearly every break opportunity he created.

Sleepy match.

Question for Goffin: Bad day at work after Friday’s exhausting clash with Pablo Carreño Busta? Or are you dealing with injuries again?
