David Goffin was unable to perform the trick for the second time at Roland Garros. In his second round, our compatriot had a blow with Alexander Zverev. This did not deter the new-look Goffin. He made it tough for the world No. 4 until the first set tiebreak, but then the Belgian had to concede his superiority over the German.

After facing off against the French side’s player in the first round, David Goffin faced his second assignment with great confidence. He was much heavier and his name was Alexander Zverev.

This does not mean that our compatriot will play tennis differently. At 6-5, Goffin skillfully finished off a set point, but soon after had to concede his superiority in the tie-break. The world number 4 pulled away quickly and won 7-4.

A first blow for the Belgian, who was immediately forced to take a second blow. The German immediately crossed Goffin’s serve. It is clear that Zverev was keen to quickly evacuate the covered court for players affected by the rainy weather.

So Goffin’s opponent insisted. In subsequent service matches, our compatriot had to eliminate break points. It worked twice, but then it cracked. 6-2 was the clear result of the quality difference.

Copy and paste into the third group. Again Joven appeals to no avail. Once again it becomes 6-2. The Belgian congratulates Zverev and shrugs. A move that says it clearly: “You were the best today.”

Goffin: “Zverev is very strong”

He added, “Things did not go badly in the first set. I could have won the set because I had chances. But it was not easy for him. There was not a big difference, but he was simply very strong.”

“I didn’t have the impression that I played less in the second and third sets. He played better, with a good serve. He is one of the players at his best. It was his best performance against me.”

“There were good things to note against Zverev. I have to continue this upward trend.”

Zverev: “Goffin is an exceptional player”

“It’s not ideal for me when the pitch is slow and hard. I’m a hard-hitting player and I always try to be very aggressive.”

“David is an exceptional player, an opponent who has caused me many difficulties in the past. This was also noticeable today in the first set. Sometimes I was not comfortable.”

“I am very happy with my victory and the level I have reached.”
