David Goffin: It was tough to stay with Novak Djokovic

David Goffin lost to Novak Djokovic in a straight-set quarter-final match on Wednesday. The Belgian player, speaking in the post-match press conference, said: "I was playing well. I had the break. Then he played well. The game was 30/0.

Maybe the double fault, that's the only point I maybe should have done better. It was really high level. It was tough to stay with him. I made everything right from the start. As soon as he was a break down, he came back to 4-All...

everything was a little bit deeper, a little bit better. He served a little bit better, as well. A lot of first serves. It was tough after that. There was always some rallies, but at the end he was on top of everything." Goffin expected a tough match and so it was: "You have to play the perfect point to win it against him.

Then he's returning in your feet all the time. You know how the grass is, just in front of the line, it's so tough, it's really fast. He puts you under pressure all the time. Even if you play well, it's not enough because he continues to play deep, deep, close from the line, left, right.

Amazing backhand down the line, as well. He was everywhere." Roberto Bautista Agut is looking forward to face Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon semi-finals. The Spaniard, following his four-set win over Guido Pella on Wednesday, said: “I think today it was a good opportunity for both of us to play each other and get the chance to play the semi-finals.

It was a really, really tough match. Guido really played amazing tennis. It was not easy to manage all the emotions and get through all of them to win the match”.
