This is his fourth win of the season for Pella. He will face the winner of the match between Italy’s Fabio Fognini (ATP 36) and Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili (ATP 42) in the second round.
Goffin injured his ankle during a grass tournament in Halle, Germany on June 14 and missed Wimbledon and the Olympic Games. The Belgian number one was still a finalist to lose in Cincinnati in 2019.
Goffin later replied: “I’ve come a long way, I can’t go any further. I’m especially happy to be able to restart the competition. We must now have confidence in the rebuilding process.” “I didn’t expect to win all my matches immediately. When you’re coming back from an injury, especially to the ankle, it’s never obvious. There’s always a little bit of worry, but physically things are going well at the moment.” ”
Our compatriot will also be ranked 19th in the ATP rankings. It was updated on Monday. The top four are the same with Djokovic, Medvedev, Tsitsipas and Nadal. Medvedev, however, continues to score several points over Djokovic thanks to his win at the ATP tournament in Toronto. Zizou Bergs is now ranked 200th, down a place. Kimmer Coppejans and Ruben Bemelmans lost one and two places respectively and can now be found at 211 and 226 places.
