Bis repetita… And that doesn’t really please Belgian tennis! For the second time in a row (the 4th overall), David Goffin is eliminated from entry to Roland-Garros, the tournament which revealed him 9 years ago.
Dmade in the first round of Roland-Garros against a young Italian talent of 19, classified around 75th place in the world, by practically the same score (5-7, 0-6, 3-6 against Sinner in 2020 and 0- 6, 7-5, 7-6 against Musetti this Monday), in eight months of time, David Goffin relived the same nightmare on this Parisian clay that he appreciates so much. And he will not be able to say that he had not been warned! But from the outset he conceded a 0-6 in 28 minutes, which in the state of his current confidence, practically sounded the death knell for his hopes in this Roland-Garros which could have relaunched his season. We are far, very far!
