The former World No. 7 David Goffin rallied in the final two sets to seal a 7-6(3), 5-7, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 win against the 23rd-seeded American Frances Tiafoe.
It was the longest amtch at Wimbleodn this year lasting well over four hours and speaking after the match, Goffin said:
“It was an amazing battle, I had to stay mentally in the match the whole time. Just after the match point, I was mentally dead, because I had to stay fresh all the time to keep my serve, to fight to come back after losing the third set. It was a tough one. It was an amazing atmosphere on this court, another epic match against Frances, so I’m very happy to be in the quarter-finals again.”
He further added:
“It means so much. For me, last year was a very tough year with some injuries. Some tough moments on the court, but this year I came back stronger. I fought a lot to come back at my best level. I didn’t play a match since 2019 here at The Championships, so to come back this year to compete again well on that surface that I love, [at] this tournament that I love, and win four matches again, it is just incredible.”
