Roger Federer versus David Goffin.

Roger Federer is 7-1 against David Goffin and is playing well on his turf in Halle. David Goffin, however, is a dangerous player and played even more aggressive than Roger the only time he beat him. Goffin has improved considerably through the tournament and cannot be taken lightly by Federer. Federer, on the other hand, is 67-7 in Halle and is en-route to his, personal best, 10th title at Halle.

We’d give the Maestro a slight edge in the match. Federer could win his 102nd title here and edge closer to Jimmy Connor’s record of 109 tour level titles.
