David Goffin Loves Roger Federer

Sure, the whole Goffin idolizes Federer thing probably got a bit out of hand, but it was pretty entertaining/sweet/at times awkward. Here are a few of my favourite Goffin/Federer moments from this week...
The now-famous Federer-Goffin hug
Q. Although you lost the match, is this the greatest match in your life?

DAVID GOFFIN: It's definitely the greatest moment in my life. I had never played in such a big stadium against the best player I've ever had as an opponent. This is a moment that I will not forget, and I hope I will have many more in my life.

Q. Is it hard for you to believe at all what you have accomplished so far?

DAVID GOFFIN: No, I don't realize. Not yet. Not yet. Maybe next week. Now I'm playing against Roger and I can't believe it. (Smiling.) When I was young I had a lot of picture in my bedroom of him.
