Dimitrov 1.39, Goffin 3.50
Dimitrov leads their previous matches 5-1. They have already played in this tournament with Dimitrov winning 6-0, 6-2. They have met four times this season. Three were indoors. Dimitrov won two of them.
Both players have won 71% of matches this year. Goffin’s ROI is a lot higher. He recovered well after his mauling by Dimitrov. Beating Federer yesterday may affect him today. In their previous 6 meetings he had only won two sets. He beat an injured Nadal in his 1st match and then wasn’t mentally ready for the Dimitrov match. This could be a repeat performance and he may be a little flat today. Lets hope not though and if he plays as he has done in his last 2 matches this could go to three sets.
Dimitrov had a tough opening match with Thiem and came through 7-5 in the deciding set. Goffin and Carreno Busta put up very little resistance and they each won just 2 games. In the semi final Sock kept the opening set very close and despite Dimitrov taking an early break of serve it was the American who came out on top. Dimitrov bounced back with a bagel in set two. In the third set Sock served at 3-4 but was broken. Dimitrov made hard work of serving for the match and had to save two break points before booking his place in the final.
Back Dimitrov if he gets broken or loses set 1
