"Was a short match so that's good" - Goffin on reaching the final in Marrakech

David Goffin secured a final in Marrakech with a straight-set win over Federico Coria 6-3 6-3 and he will be looking for his first trophy in 2021.

The last time David Goffin reached an ATP Tour semi-final, he went on to win the Montpellier title last February. He's on track to repeat that feat at the Grand Prix Hassan II following a straightforward victory on Saturday in Marrakech. Contrary to his previous matches, this one was rather short and he was glad about it:

"It was a short match, so it's good because the last two matches were more than two hours and 30 minutes. It was not easy. At the beginning I was a little bit nervous. The energy was a little bit down so I had to push myself to play better, to come back, to break back."

He was also happy with the way he handled the match overall saying:

"I managed to deal with my emotions at the end to finish the match so I'm happy to play another final, especially here, the first tournament on clay. I will give everything tomorrow."

The opponent is Alex Molcan, a plaeyr who never won an ATP trophy and on that he said:

"He's a great fighter, he's moving so well. He's lefty so he's using his lefty game really well on clay, especially two days ago against Felix, he played well. So it's a tough opponent."
