Goffin Rolls Past Thiem in ATP Finals, Will Face Federer in Semis

LONDON – Belgian David Goffin booked a spot in the last four of the ATP Finals with an easy 6-4, 6-1 victory Friday afternoon over fourth-ranked Austrian Dominic Thiem.

The eighth-ranked Goffin, who is making his second appearance at this elite season-ending tournament, finished runner-up in Group Pete Sampras with two wins and one defeat.

But he now has the daunting task of trying to stop Swiss great Roger Federer in Saturday’s semifinals.

“I have nothing to lose. He’s playing so well,” the eighth-ranked Goffin said of the six-time ATP Finals champion, who advanced unbeaten to the semis of this indoor hard-court event for the 10th time in 15 appearances.

Two ATP Finals debutants will square off in the other semi-final match: Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, the winner of Group Pete Sampras, and American Jack Sock, the Group Boris Becker runner-up.

Thiem stormed out to a 3-0 lead in Friday’s match but then proceeded to lose 15 consecutive points and five games in a row. The Belgian subsequently wrapped up the first set in 31 minutes with an outstanding running forehand passing shot.

The Austrian, who was clearly struggling with left-knee discomfort, held serve in his opening service game of the second set but then dropped the final six games of the contest.

Dimitrov will take on Spain’s Pablo Carreño Busta on Friday night in a match that is a mere formality, with the Bulgarian having already clinched the top spot in his group and the latter having already been eliminated from semifinal contention.
