Dimitrov, Goffin to play for ATP Finals title

The absentee from the O2 Arena this evening is of course Roger Federer, who was stunningly defeated in yesterday's semi-final by David Goffin. "I can not describe how I'm feeling - so much joy, so much happiness", said Goffin.

"One person that, I don't know if she's in the hall or not, but she played a pretty important part, was my girlfriend Nicole".

There still seemed plenty of time for 19-time Grand Slam champion Federer to re-assert his authority but Goffin stayed cool and his moment of truth arrived at 5-4 when he stepped up to serve for the biggest win of his career. In that third set I was just trying to get that break.

Federer, the World No. 2, snaffled the opener in 33 one-sided minutes as he feasted on Goffin's steady medium-paced game.

Still, Goffin wasn't about to give up on his finals hopes. Earlier in the week, Goffin also beat world number one Rafael Nadal in three sets in the round robin, although the Spaniard appeared to be bothered by a knee injury and withdrew from the tournament after the match. Cheers of support for the underdog were soon muted by the hollers of "come on Roger!" at the beginning of the third set.

It was not financially prudent to negotiate ToT for just 36 fighters, she said. The delivery of the jets is scheduled to begin from September, 2019.

Goffin, 26, landed just 42 percent of first serves in the first set and made 20 unforced errors, struggling to find the bite and consistency he had enjoyed in beating Federer. Arguably, Goffin played his most clutch tennis in the tournament after he managed to fend off the fightback from Federer, holding onto his lead narrowly with some tight service holds.

Dimitrov needed to answer and did so to hold serve and go 4-3 in front.

Such thoughts must have been flowing through his mind when, serving for the match, three chances to close out came and went.

"I have no words I can not describe how I'm feeling, so much joy, so much happiness".

"I hope that tomorrow he's not going to play the same match".

Charles Manson being treated in Bakersfield hospital, according to TMZ
Now, the LA Times report that Manson has been hospitalised for a second time this year, following an initial incident in January. But a local television reporter tweeted a photo of a prison department van outside Mercy Hospital.

He'd had to change things up after taking only two games off Dimitrov in their round-robin encounter last Wednesday, but his fearless all-or-nothing approach wasn't enough as a late resurgence on his own serve and his encouragement for the crowd failed to save the match.

"Speaking on court afterwards, Dimitrov said: "[It was] another good match, it's great when you have feelings like that.

Down 0-3, Jack saved a crucial break point hitting a fast forehand, then he started to be more consistent and solid and broke back his opponent. I wish I could just press "replay".

"Jack is an unbelievable player - he was playing so well", said Dimitrov.
