Chasing his second Grand Slam title on clay, World No. 3 Roger Federer managed to complete his “Career-Slam” in 2009, when he triumphed at Roland Garros.
Interestingly, he did not have to face Rafael Nadal in the final then. Certainly, passed his prime, Roger Federer is still a defiant contender to beat on tour and he has proved over a period of time that he is still better than all the players in Top 10 – except Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Well, the Swiss will take on Belgian qualifier David Goffin in his fourth-round encounter to secure his berth in the quarterfinal of the 2012 French Open.
Undoubtedly, Federer takes one step at a time and religiously follow his daily routine, which allows him to adapt to the different surfaces – with the utmost ease. Federer has a stellar 32-4 win-loss record this season and has won four titles so far in 2011 including ATP Masters title in Madrid on blue clay. Federer still has it to win a couple of Grand Slams and it would be interesting to see, how he would fare against the twenty one years old David Goffin, who is ranked as World No. 109 in the ATP Rankings.
Federer’s opponent David Goffin has been enjoying the best run in any tournament at the moment. And, he will be playing the biggest match of his career on Sunday, as he would get the opportunity to square off against one of the all time bests – Roger Federer. The Belgian has a poor 7-5 win-loss record for the season so far and he is bidding for his maiden title.
This will be a first meeting between these two and Federer should easily win this contest in three sets.
