David Goffin closed his 2021 season with a balance of 14 wins and 15 losses. In fact, injuries forced him to cut his participation in September and with several tournaments ahead.
Despite his poor year, the Belgian remained in the Top 40 of the ranking (39th) thanks to the slow thaw. Beyond that, he is eager to start a new tennis calendar to return to competition. “I took the time to take care of myself and come back stronger because I don’t want to play six months, but four or five more years”, he assured in words to TennisActu.
The best of his year was the title on the Montpellier cement, a semi-final at the ATP 250 in Antalya and the quarter-finals at the Masters 1000 in Monte-Carlo.
In addition, he affirmed: “I want to achieve results again and I miss competing. When I am in Valencia I train with Spaniards and, in this case, David Ferrer gave me some advice, but nothing more at the moment. He is someone I appreciate. “
