‘I am very happy the season is over,’ says David Goffin after coronavirus struggle

David Goffin has bid good riddance to his 2020 season after admitting he has been struggling both mentally and physically since the restart.

Since the US Open, Goffin has lost three matches in a row, the latest of which coming in a 4-6, 6-7 (6-8) loss to Norbert Gombos at the Paris Masters.

The Belgian, though, tested positive for coronavirus last month and has admitted to finding motivation tough to find due to the truncated nature of the season.

However, he now has no more matches scheduled until 2021, and he has declared himself pleased to see the back of this season.

“I just wanted to see where I am in this tournament but now I’m very happy that the season is over because now I can try to look more in the future.”

“I’m feeling better because I wanted to play and I was happy to be on the court,” Goffin explained.

“It was not my best (performance) but I had some good moments in the two matches I played in Antwerp and here (Paris).’

“At the French Open it was just a very bad match. I wanted to come back for the end of the year.”

“I didn’t expect anything when I came here (to Paris). It wasn’t good in Antwerp.

“I was still breathing heavily there. Here I just wanted to see where my level is at.”
