Belgian seventh seed David Goffin clinched the final semi-final spot at the ATP Finals with victory over fourth seed Dominic Thiem in London.
Goffin won 6-4, 6-1 to secure second place in the Pete Sampras group and set up a semi-final clash with Roger Federer in Saturday.
“It will be a tough match, so nice to play a semi against him,” said Goffin.
This is an impressive response from the Belgian, who in his previous match fell to an embarrassing defeat against a ramapant Dimitrov. And he’s also hoping to put up a good performance against Federer in the semis.
“After the first match against Rafael I wasted so much energy, I was not ready for Grigor, but I had a good rest yesterday and was ready for today, and I hope I can do the same for the semi-finals,” added Goffin.
In the last of the round-robin matches, Dimitrov will play Pablo Carreno Busta at 21:00 today, Friday, but with the qualification scenario settled they are playing for 200 ranking points and the £145,000 prize money for a match win.
