David Goffin is, as things stand, not only the highest-ranked male tennis player from Belgium but also the first ever tennis star from the country to break into the top 10 of the ATP rankings. His career-high singles ranking is number 7 and he is currently 30 in the world. Goffin has won a total of 6 titles in his career – five in singles competition and 1 in the doubles division. Aside from winning five singles titles, he has also finished runners-up in nine other finals, the most notable of those being the 2017 ATP World Tour Finals, where he lost to Grigor Dimitrov.
His first win on the ATP tour came at the Chennai Open in 2011, when he beat India’s Somdev Devvarman in the first round. Prior to that he had played in Challenger and Futures events. However, his major breakthrough in the world of tennis would come in 2012 in the French Open. He did not qualify for the event as he lost out in the qualifiers, but he was granted entry into the draw as a lucky loser.
The Belgian has faced Swiss superstar Roger Federer quite a number of times so far in his career but has only been able to win once. Out of the 11 matches they have played, the 20-time Grand Slam winner has won 10.

The Belgian has had slightly better luck when it comes to facing Grigor Dimitrov, but he still does not have a record he can boast of. The two have faced one another 10 times so far and Dimitrov has been victorious on eight occasions.

Goffin has faced Novak Djokovic eight times in his career and much like with Federer, the Belgian has only been able to win one match so far.
