Saturday’s Roland Garros schedule features many enticing match-ups, but we are keeping a close eye on the meeting between world No. 48 David Goffin and world No. 13 Hubert Hurkacz. Goffin, who was once ranked as high as seventh, has struggled with injuries in recent years, but he appears to have rediscovered his game this season. The Belgian will now look to make a big-time statement by defeating Hurkacz and securing his spot in the round of 16 at the French Open.
Goffin is 14-4 on clay this season, highlighted by winning a title in Marrakech back in April. The 31-year-old has earned wins over some really solid players during that stretch, and also held four match points in a thrilling three-set loss against Rafael Nadal on May 5. Jusrt pushing Nadal to those limits should give you an idea of how well Goffin is playing right now, and just how dangerous he can be on the dirt.
