TennisSection previews Wimbledon 2022 as Frances Tiafoe takes on David Goffin in the fourth round on Sunday, July 3rd, 2022.
Will David Goffin continue to find form as he is turning around his 2022 season in the last couple months with solid performances consistently? Will Frances Tiafoe show us why he is so hard to beat in these conditions with his flamboyant playing style? Both players have a lot to bring to the table in this encounter, but only one will make it to the quarter-finals of Wimbledon. Who will it be?
David Goffin has shown us why experience really matters in the big moments this week, having beaten some tricky opponents, such as Radu Albot, Sebastian Baez, but most importantly Ugo Humbert. Goffin looked to be out of the fourth set in his match against Humbert, doing 5-3 with the Frenchman serving to take it to a 5th, but he kept his composure and got the job done in 4 by winning the next 4 games. Goffin would have been shocked if you would have told him his current form, perhaps 3/4 months ago as the veteran had been on a very bad poor form run. However, he knows that he is still not in the clear as he now has to face Frances Tiafoe here at Wimbledon.
Frances Tiafoe came out firing in his third round match against the always fun to watch, Alexander Bublik. Tiafoe is a great player, with amazing skills which I think most players couldn’t even think of. However, what has kept him back in the past has been his consistency. Tiafoe has the talent to be a top 10 guy on his day, but his day doesn’t come often. But here at Wimbledon, he seems to have found his rhythm, and he knows that if he plays to the best of his ability, he can definitely make it all the way to the semi-finals at least! Frances tiafoe shouldn’t get too far ahead of himself however, as he still has to meet the wall which is known as David Goffin.
Frances Tiafoe and David Goffin have met 5 times before, with David Goffin leading the head to head 4-1. They met at the French Open this year, where Goffin won in 4 sets. However, with that match being on clay, it suited Goffin’s playing style more. Coming into this match at Wimbledon, I think that Goffin can keep things close, but Tiafoe has much more variety in his game which can hurt Goffin on grass. It will be a tight one, because neither player is known for their consistency and their dominance against opponents, even when they are playing at their best. But at the end of the day, I think Tiafoe gets revenge for their last match and books himself into the quarter-finals of Wimbledon.
