David Goffin goes down against number 821 of the world in re-enactment: “We are going to draw conclusions from this”


David Goffin (ATP 39) was visibly disappointed after losing to Frenchman Jules Marie (ATP 821) on Thursday evening at the Caen Open, an exhibition tournament in France. The Liege player lost 6-1 and 6-4 after 3.5 months without competition.

“It was really a game like it goes after a long break,” he said after the game. “I started badly with a lot of attacking mistakes and bad choices. There was a lot of doubt, I lacked some spontaneity. I came here with only a few days of leg training. Jules also did an excellent job. I know his level. He has won a lot this season. He left the professional circuit pretty quickly for other projects, but he has continued to play well.”

David Goffin now continues to prepare for his ‘official’ return to the track on January 4 at the ATP 250 tournament in Melbourne. There he also meets Rafael Nadal (ATP 6). The Belgian number one will fly to Australia on December 27, where he will also play the Australian Open from January 17.

“This public race was good to know where I stand,” he finished. “It was a good workout. We are going to draw conclusions from this. I do not regret my participation. I do my best and will continue to do so. My program is now training and after Christmas I leave for Australia.”

It was Goffin’s first game since his loss to American Mackenzie McDonald in the first round of the US Open. In the following days, the Belgian number one indicated that he was taking a rest due to an injury to the left knee.
