• Goffin gets another shot at Troicki

    3/7/13 4:04 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Goffin gets another shot at Troicki After Davis Cup heartbreak last month, David Goffin will hope to find his form in Indian Wells. Up first for Goffin on Thursday is Viktor Troicki.

    Viktor Troicki and David Goffin will be squaring off for the third time in their careers and for the second time this season when they meet in round one of the BNP Paribas Open on Thursday. Goffin prevailed last summer in Winston Salem, but this head to head matchup will bring back painful memories for the Belgian. In Davis Cup last month, he served for the match in the third set before Troicki stormed back to win 1-6, 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-4, 6-4.

    Goffin has not shown any signs of recovering. The world No. 54 has not won a match since Davis Cup, a stretch of three straight setbacks in which he has not even taken a set. He even got double-bageled by Jarkko Nieminen in Rotterdam. Goffin is a wretched 2-7 at the ATP level this season.

    Troicki is also struggling, riding a three-match losing streak in part due to awful draws. The 44th-ranked Serb fell to Richard Gasquet in Rotterdam and to countryman Novak Djokovic in Dubai. Troicki has not won a match since early February in Montpellier.

    Count on another back-and-forth battle, complete with inconsistent play. Because Goffin cannot be playing with any kind of confidence, Troicki in three sets is the pick.
