Dimitrov would continue to fight throughout the first set. He would outlast Goffin, winning the back and forth and taking the first set 7-5.
The Bulgarian tennis player is off to a fantastic start in 2017. He started the year with an early title win at Brisbane and is now the world No. 13 going into his finals match with Goffin. A win would be a huge boost in momentum for Dimitrov.
Goffin started the second set on the wrong foot, falling behind Dimitrov 3-0.
The finals match at Sofia is just their third career singles meeting. Their second came weeks prior at the Australian Open quarterfinals, where Dimitrov defeated Goffin in straight sets. So far in their career meetings, Dimitrov is 2-0 versus Goffin.
Set two continued in favor of Dimitrov, who maintained his edge over Goffin. The world No. 11 did not go silently though. Putting up a fight, Goffin took four games to bring the second set to 5-4. It was not, however, enough to fend off Grigor Dimitrov who continues to remain undefeated versus David Goffin.
Grigor Dimitrov defeats David Goffin 7-5, 6-4.
The ATP World Tour continues this week with action in Rotterdam. Both Dimitrov and Goffin are scheduled to play and will see quick turnarounds after their Sofia Open finals match.
