David Goffin, placed number 10 of the tournament, traversed the third round of the US Open and defeated Jan-Lennard Struff from Germany, the 58th player in the world, in three sets, 6 / 4-6 / 1-7 / 6 (4 ).
The game lasted two hours and sixteen minutes. Goffin could have won even faster because he led 4/0 in the last heat, and he had a 5-ball to 0. He then had a small moment of deconcentration and his opponent is ready to let go of all his battles. As a result, Struff returned, and he even served for the victory of the set, at 6/5.
David Goffin was able to avoid the fourth inning and won at the end of a deciding game.
The next opponent of the Belgian number one is the Croatian Marin Cilic, former winner of the tournament, or the young Australian Alex de Minaur.
