BELGIAN David Goffin matched his best-ever performance at the tennis majors on Monday (8) by reaching his first Wimbledon quarter-final.

The Belgian 21st seed beat Spain’s Fernando Verdasco 7-6 (11/9), 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in their fourth round clash on Court Three.

He will face either world number one Novak Djokovic or Frenchman Ugo Humbert in Wednesday’s (10) quarter-finals.

In getting to the last eight of a Grand Slam for the third time, Goffin became the fifth Belgian man in history to reach the quarter-finals at Wimbledon – and, along with Xavier Malisse in 2002, the only one to do so since 1924.
