David Goffin shocks Roger Federer, Grigor Dimitrov beats Jack Sock

The Bulgarian sixth seed came into the title decider unbeaten at London's O2 Arena, with a healthy 4-1 head-to-head record against Goffin, including a 6-0, 6-2 win in the round-robin stage. I don't want to get too hyped up because I've done well, now I'm number three in the world.

The psychological damage could have been great given the Bulgarian had wiped away his opponent with the loss of only two games last Wednesday in their group game, but it lasted only until midway through the second set, when Goffin broke and went on to level the score.

Grigor Dimitrov has claimed the biggest title of his career by beating David Goffin at the ATP World Tour Finals - and then set his sights set on winning a grand slam.

The semifinal line-up: Dimitrov vs Sock; Federer vs Goffin. It was the first time against Rafa. "I'm just going to focus on what I can do and play hopefully the same game".

"It is the greatest win of my career, for sure". Goffin, on the other hand, has the small matter of leading Belgium in the Davis Cup final against France in Lille next weekend.

On Saturday, it appeared he would have an extra day to prepare for national duty as 36-year-old Federer feasted on the elegant Goffin's medium-pace game to boss the opener. But Goffin broke serve with a forehand victor in the second game of the second set and consolidated his advantage to take the match into a decider.

Growing in confidence, the 26-year-old broke Federer's serve again at 1-1 in the third set as the Swiss, suddenly hesitant, struck a backhand out.

However, in the major moments Goffin was able to keep his game under control, taking five of his seven break point opportunities.

Dimitrov needed just 22 minutes to clinch the first set having raced into a 5-0 lead, wrapping it up as Carreno Busta dumped a return into the net.

Federer has been in a magnificent form throughout the year, losing on just four occasions and only once to a top-10 ranked player on his way to winning two Grand Slam titles at the Wimbledon and Australian Open this year.

"It's disappointing to finish on this note".

"With the right set of mind, with the right people, with the right support, things happen", said Dimitrov, who admitted he couldn't imagine achieving such success two years ago.

"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". So, yes, I'm happy with it. Sock began to offload on his seismic forehand though and roared back to snatch the opening set.

By now, Sock had won more games than Dimitrov had relinquished in his previous two games combined.
