With a game that is based on speed, consistency and endurance, The Wall David Goffin doesn’t always make the short list when one considers which players might get the biggest boost from the innovative, rapid-fire format of the Ultimate Tennis Showdown.

But you can never rule out true grit and tennis IQ, and these are the characteristics that have propelled the Belgian to the final four.

After a slow start that saw Goffin look like a fish out of water as he dropped his first two UTS matches, the Wall has found his sea legs and steadied his once wobbling game. It hasn’t been perfect in every element but Goffin has demonstrated the capacity to improve with each passing week.

Could he be ready to peak on Sunday? The world No 10 may not pack the punch of the others, but if the window of opportunity flies open he’s got the speed to run all the way to the title.
