“I am always happy to play at this tournament,” Goffin said at the press conference. “It feels like a home game, as I train here all year round. I feel comfortable here and I have played a few good matches in Monte-Carlo in the past. It was a short preparation, but after Miami I had enough time to make the transition. ”

“Gravel has always been special to me. It is the substrate that I grew up with. You can create the most play on it. And then there are a lot of mythical tournaments like here, Rome and of course Roland-Garros. It’s something I’m really looking forward to. It will be sad to play without spectators, but I am glad to be here. ”

Goffin awaits a tough assignment with Marin Cilic in the first round: “He is a tough opponent. He’s not confident at the moment, but he is still an extraordinary player. He really hit me in Rome (Goffin lost 6-2, 6-2). But we are a year later. It is different now ”

Goffin also spoke out about the postponement of Roland Garros, which is now disrupting the grass season. “It is a pity. because Rosmalen and ‘s Hertogenbosch are tournaments that I have always liked to play in preparation for Halle and Wimbledon. Now things will turn out differently. But it doesn’t really change much. ”
