David Goffin is in the semifinal of the Cincinnati Masters 1000. On Friday-evening, the Belgian Juan Martin Del Potro defeated with 2 sets to 0, with a double 7/6 (7-5 and 7-4). Despite the 2-0, Goffin had a lot of work against the Argentinian, who just missed the match for the third set.
Now Goffin expects the winner between the Swiss Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka, who is in court. The person who wins the semi-finals is facing Serbian Novak Djokovic or Croatian Marin Cilic, who face each other in the other semi-final.
The first set was as balanced as possible, with the two players playing flawlessly. Goffin faced the only partial break in the seventh game, but saved him. Without interruption, the set for the tiebreaker was defeated by Goffin 7-5, who had moved on to the place in the semi-finals.
The balance was also present in the second set. The difference is that this time every player has achieved a service break. In the tenth game, Del Potro, living 5 to 4, had three set points, but did not take any and the set went to the tie-break again. In the last game, Goffin was left behind but turned and won 7-4, which ended the game in 2 sets to 0.
