Rafa on playing Goffin:
He’s a great player. He’s a player that is playing unbelievably well during the whole season. He is winning so many matches. I know he can win against everybody, and he knows it too. He’s more and more confident every time. I said last year that he can fight for the top position because he’s a very complete player on all surfaces. He can play well everywhere. That’s very important today.
