“I am arrived here with a good feeling. I’ve had good matches in the legs and have no physical discomfort,” said Goffin at a press conference. “I was surprised that I was in Monte Carlo is already a high level got. So began my gravelseizoen well, with afterwards a good tournament in Barcelona. Only against Kyle Edmund (Madrid, ed.) I have a bad game played. The goal is to the positive line by pulling it.”
Goffin and Haase look to each other for the sixth time in the eyes, the second time in one month. The Belgian number one has lost just once against the Dutch number one. “In Madrid I have him beat, that gives confidence for the party in the opening round. But the circumstances are different. We’ll see who’s best capable of dealing with it. He serves well, counterbalances well with the backhand and even his forehand is good. In addition, Haase is smart and experienced, he always tries to find solutions. This race can really be a snare. I’m going to try as well to do when in Madrid”, decided Goffin.
