Goffin beats Federer for the first time and qualifies for the Masters final

Goffin wins 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 for first win over Federer in seven meetings

David Goffin has finally defeated his childhood idol for the first time in seven career meetings. And what a way to do it: rallying from a set down on a stage where Federer has played so extraordinarily well down the years.

Goffin becomes only the sixth player ever to defeat Federer and Rafael Nadal at the same event.

Semifinal tomorrow at the #NittoATPFinals 🇬🇧👊🏻
