Roger Federer v David Goffin Head to Head
The two players have met nine times on tour and Federer leads the head-to-head, 8-1.

Goffin On Comeback Trail Getting Stronger
Belgian David Goffin was ranked number seven in the world in 2017, after he beat Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to qualify for the finals of the ATP Tour Finals in London, which he lost to Grigor Dimitrov.
What followed was a spate of injuries for the Belgian throughout 2018, in what was a disappointing year for him and saw his ranking fall out of the top 30.
Goffin has fought his way back being a finalist at both the ATP 500 on the grass courts of Halle as well, as at the ATP Masters 1000 in Cincinnati.
A gritty counterpuncher, Goffin is strong from the baseline and capable of impressive shotmaking on both wings.
He has been impressive at the US Open thus far, most importantly with a hard-fought straight sets win against 2017 US Open semi-finalist Pablo Carreno Busta.
