Federer overwhelms a dull Goffin and goes to the quarterfinals

Roger Federer beat Belgian David Goffin on Sunday in a quick round of 16 match at the US Open, which the Swiss settled in just over a hundred minutes by 6-2, 6-2 and 6-0.

After the doubts of his first two games, against Sumit Nagal and Damir Dzumhur, in which he lost a set in each of them, and the reaction he had afterwards against Dani Evans, Federer pressed the accelerator again to overwhelm Goffin , which he has already won in nine of his ten games.

The duel was played on the Arthur Ashe court in Flushing Meadows, whose audience attended a great display of the Basel tennis player, against an unfortunate rival on service, who was only able to score 50 percent of his first serves.

The second serve was also not useful to the Belgian, since he was only able to win 27 percent of the points in which he had to resort to it.

Federer punished Goffin with his powerful right hand, with accurate volleys and a good consistent first serve, in a game in which the Belgian seemed to be low on energy after the intense battle he fought against Spanish Pablo Carreño last Friday in the third round.

Goffin was quickly deflated, and Federer became the lord of the match, winning the last nine consecutive games in a landslide.

“David has not had his best day, he has had a bad time,” said Federer minutes after the end of the match. “He has not played like other times,” he added.

In that round, the Swiss will face the winner of the match between the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and the Australian of Spanish origin Alex de Miñaur. EFE
