Not only does his opponent Grigor Dimitrov lead the head to head between the two players 4-1, but he hammered Goffin 6-0, 6-2 just four days ago in the tournament's Round Robin stage.

"I'm just pretty relaxed right now".

Goffin managed only two games against Dimitrov when they met last week in group play but the world number eight, who claimed a rare double of beating both Nadal and Federer this week, was a different proposition this time.

Although Dimitrov - making his first appearance at this event in 2017 - broke straight back, Goffin raced into a 40-0 lead on his way to restoring his advantage by winning the next.

"As you saw last week in Milan, there are so many good players coming. We hope to play some more in the future". "He had to be aggressive in order so he doesn't let me play my game".

Both players struggled to hold serve at the start of the contest in front of a feisty packed house and the error count was high from both men.

Dimitrov needed five championship points to get over the line as an untimely wobble invited Goffin back into the final set.

Sock now stands between Dimitrov and a place in the final but, with Dominic Thiem the only player to win more than two games against the world number six so far in the tournament, the American will need to produce his best to knock him out.

Dmitrov said: "I feel pretty awesome right now". Congrats to him and his team for this incredible result, I think he's one of the most improved players throughout the past weeks and months.

Dimitrov was more clinical, striking in the sixth game to take control of the third set.

Goffin saved three match points to ask Dimitrov the serve it out, but he kept his composure to seal a famous win on his fifth match point, although he was given a helping hand as the Belgian dumped a simple-looking volley into the net.

Also, he had grabbed the ATP Finals six times in the past.

"I was a little bit exhausted in the third", Goffin said.

Carreno Busta promptly dropped serve in the opening game of the second set and received medical treatment as the one-way traffic continued.

"Obviously, this is a great, unbelievable achievement for me, yes, but I just still have a lot to give". In the second, I had some opportunities to come back, to break back, but he was really solid.

Since teaming up with Dani Vallverdu late in 2016, Dimitrov has won four titles, including his first Masters trophy in Cincinnati, and recaptured the form that propelled him into the top 10 for the first time in 2014. At 3-0 in the second set, Goffin was digging his heels into the game.
