The Lowdown


  • Dimitrov came through a testing opener against Dominic Thiem in three sets to get his ATP World Tour Finals debut off to a great start.
  • The Bulgarian will take confidence from the way he clinched the deciding set against Thiem and he is finishing off his season playing consistent high-quality tennis.
  • The world number six holds a 3-1 career head-to-head lead over opponent Goffin and all of those encounters have been on hard courts.


  • Although he was up against a struggling Rafael Nadal on Monday evening, Goffin competed well and will take the positives from overcoming the world number one in three sets.
  • That victory now means he has as good a chance as any to qualify from the Pete Sampras group, and a win here would effectively guarantee a semi-final spot.
  • Despite being behind in career meetings with Dimitrov, the Belgian did win in their most recent encounter in Rotterdam earlier this year in a match that was also contested on indoor hard courts.

The Statistics

The Prediction

These two met three times in quick succession at the beginning of 2017 with Dimitrov edging two of those encounters to take his overall record to 3-1 against Goffin. Both are playing well at the minute and will be delighted with their respective victories in the first round of games, but it is Dimitrov who is the slight favourite to edge another nail-biter.
