Goffin seems to be back at his best after a long injury spell. Beating Gasquet 6-3, 6-4, he reached his first Masters 1000 final, also setting a first for Belgium. "It was a tough period", Goffin looked back upon his long injury spell, followed by a long comeback with ups and downs. "I was coming back from injuries and had some trouble with my confidence. I couldn't find my rhythm. So it's great. I'm feeling great. I'm back at my best tennis."
Goffin added that "I love this tournament and I played my best tennis here in recent years. I am very happy to reach a Masters 1000 final for the first time. To reach the final here, is a big moment for me."
In that final battle, Goffin will face Medvedev, who upset favourite Novak Djokovic is his semi-final, hitting 14 aces and second serves at 128 miles per hour (205 kilometres per hour). Medvedev reached the Montreal final last week, where he was beaten by Rafael Nadal.
