World number 2, Roger Federer couldn’t make it to the final of the ongoing ATP finals after crashing out in the semifinal to David Goffin on Saturday.
The 19-time Grand Slam champion started off well having won the first set, but he did lose charge as Goffin came from a set down to win 2-6 6-3 6-4, his first victory in seven attempts against Federer.
Federer will be absent in Sunday’s final, but will hold his head up high having had a remarkable year winning two major titles with 52 match victories losing only five.
26-year-old Goffin reached the biggest final of his career and will face either Grigor Dimitrov or Jack Sock, who will battle each other in the second semi-final later on Saturday.
“I’m so happy to play the match I played. It was such a special moment,” said Goffin.
“Honestly, I don’t know [what worked]. It was just the feeling of the day. I was a little bit nervous when I started the match but I started to feel the ball really well. The serve was there right to the end. It was my day.”
The ATP finals ends on Sunday.
