ATP Finals: David Goffin stuns Roger Federer in semis

David Goffin becomes the first player to beat the Top 2 in the world (No. 1 Nadal, No. 2 Federer) in the year-ending ATP Finals since Nikolay Davydenko who managed to achieve the similar feat in 2009.

David Goffin ended Roger Federer's bid for a seventh ATP Finals title by stunning the favourite 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the semifinals on Saturday. The Belgian claimed the biggest win of his career and qualified for the final on Sunday when he will face Grigor Dimitrov or Jack Sock. They play later Saturday.

Federer looked to be heading toward his 11th final at the elite season-ending tournament when he cruised through the first set, but Goffin took advantage of a drop in his play to level.

Despite having lost all six of his previous encounters with Federer, Goffin was able to execute better in the deciding set, breaking in the third game and producing a nerveless display of serving to seal the victory.
