It is Goffin’s first win against Evans in four games. Last year, the Briton defeated the Belgian number one in the quarterfinals in Monte Carlo. At the beginning of this year, he was also the strongest in the first round of the Australian Open.
Now against Djokovic killer
Goffin will meet Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (ATP 46) in the last sixteen, who surprisingly took the measure of Serbian number one in the world, Novak Djokovic in his second round on Tuesday. But: our compatriot is also in shape. On Sunday he bagged his sixth ATP title in Marrakech, Morocco. The win against Evans was his seventh win in a row.
Goffin received a wildcard for the main draw in Monte Carlo. In 2017, he reached the semifinals of the prestigious clay court tournament.
