It was great to see Federer’s 4th round match against Goffin on Court Suzanne Lenglen at the French Open. Here are my best pics.
Roger Federer defeated David Goffin 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. Goffin from Belgium has had an amazing run to reach the 4th round, especially given that this is his first grand slam tournament. He gained a “lucky loser” place through qualifying, then defeated Stepanek in 5 sets in round 1, Clement in 5 sets in round 2 and Kubot in 3 sets in round 3.
Goffin’s current ranking is 109 but that should improve now.
Keep an eye out for Goffin in future, he held his own incredibly well against Federer and had great support from the crowd, at one point during the second set I even thought it was possible that he might win.

Thanks Jonathan. Its always great to see Federer play, there’s a really special feeling of “Roger-ness” in the air when he is on the court.
Lucky you, it’s been my favourite match of the tournament so far in terms of shot making!
Great to see both players interviewed on court after the match. Goffin has got the shots to rise in the rankings if this match is anything to go by.
