David Goffin brought wins to Belgium in the Davis Cup final against France, beating Lucas Pouille and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in both his singles rubbers. Still, it wasn't enough as the country lost its third final in the tournament after 1904 and 2015. 'It’s a disappointment even if I played two good matches,' the world no.
7 said in press conference on Sunday night. 'When the team loses we’re all disappointed. We gave it our all. It’s tough to finish this way but we did a lot of good things as a team this year.' Goffin also commented on captain Van Herck's importance: 'When Johan took the team's lead, he set clear rules.
Everyone in the team has a good relationship [with the others], we grew stronger together. We feel like a family. I hope this final is not the last one, this is a great team and I think I will play the first round at home.' Goffin still had two amazing weeks, reaching the final at the ATP Finals and winning two straight sets matches in Davis Cup.
The seven-time Grand Slam winner and fellow compatriot Justine Henin had said Goffin could crack top-five rankings and win a Major one day. He will start his 2018 season at the Hopman Cup, which starts on December 30th.
