Goffin shocks Federer in semifinal match of ATP Finals

Goffin shocks Federer in semifinal match of ATP Finals

But then he ran into Grigor Dimitrov, who remains undefeated in the final ATP tourney of the year. At 3-0 in the second set, Goffin was digging his heels into the game. Came up with some pretty insane shots in the third set at some inopportune (moments) for myself.

Dimitrov, playing the season finale for the first time, joins Group Boris Becker victor Roger Federer as the only unbeaten singles players, and the Bulgarian will fight for the champion berth against American Jack Sock on Saturday.

A double fault from Goffin at game point at 2-1 looked to have cost Goffin, but he turned it back around to lead 3-1. Arguably, Goffin played his most clutch tennis in the tournament after he managed to fend off the fightback from Federer, holding onto his lead narrowly with some tight service holds. A hold from Goffin and a hold from Federer and the Belgian was serving for the match.

But the psychological advantage Goffin's netted forehand gave Dimitrov lasted only until mid-way through the second set, when the less fancied of the two players broke and then closed out the set to level the score.

Dimitrov will put his racket away and take a well-earned break before training starts all over again in preparation for the Australian Open in 2018.

"Things went my way tonight and I'm more than happy". This time he required five set points in a 12th game lasting 10 minutes, to win the set 7-5 in just under an hour.

"Jack is an unbelievable player - he was playing so well", said Dimitrov. I was very composed and didn't let negative thoughts come to my head.

Sock now stands between Dimitrov and a place in the final but, with Dominic Thiem the only player to win more than two games against the world number six so far in the tournament, the American will need to produce his best to knock him out.

Asked about the tension in that final game, Dimitrov insisted he had not been thinking about what had happened in his previous meetings with Sock ad that in fact the experience had helped on this occasion.

Sock won the ATP Finals shootout with Alexander Zverev, beating the German in three sets to secure a semi-final berth in their last group match. But this time, instead of seeing a fiery Sock comeback, Dimitrov stormed to a 6-0 second set victory, losing just nine points. He faced Dimitrov in Group Pete Sampras play earlier in the week, falling 6-0, 6-2. But I'm going to try something, something different, something that I've never done in the past.
