"But in the end, I was really happy about the way I played the match, I was really nervous towards the end of the match", Goffin said in his on court interview after the match. It was just the feeling.
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.
He is the first man to beat both players at the same tournament without taking home the trophy but put that disappointment aside to say he has improved as a result of his eyecatching week.
Moody's ups ratings of SBI, HDFC Bank, EXIM India and IRFC
Earlier, the outlook was positive but on a lower rating, which indicated there were more chances of an upgrade than downgrade. HDFC Chairman Deepak Parekh said, "I've always felt India's rating was far below than what it should be".
But 22 minutes in and the world No. 2 held a comfortable 4-1 lead. Goffin for his part has already beaten Federer and Rafael Nadal this week - the first man to do so at the same tournament, by my calculations, since Novak Djokovic at this event two years ago - and conjures up delicious angles from the baseline, especially on the backhand side.
He was broken again in the third game of the second set and then twice more as Goffin cruised to victory. "Somehow after the 3-0, I lost it until the end". A hold from Goffin and a hold from Federer and the Belgian was serving for the match. "Against Roger, it was such a special moment, I can not describe", Goffin said after the match.
Grigor Dimitrov set his sights on winning his first Grand Slam after his dramatic victory at the ATP Finals on Sunday gave him the biggest title of his career.
"She's somewhere hiding", said Dimitrov.
Moody's ratings and Modi's expectations are finally on the same page
The finance minister said that the government's emphasis was on "implementation and reaping benefits of the growth process". The upgrade is likely to have a positive rub-off effect on equities, rupee , and bonds, industry insiders said.
It was too close to call but two Sock double faults helped Dimitrov break for 5-3.
Sock saved a break point before holding with an ace down the T to get to 3-1 and then broke back when Dimitrov netted a rally ball. It was turning into quite the contest. The resilience that allowed Sock to come from behind and win the first set was nowhere to be seen in the second.
Sock had an 80% record on service games won coming into this match and he attacked this game with no less muster and sealed the first set 6-4. His unforced errors were flying all over the court and Thiem snatched an easy break and quickly led 3-0.
But in a huge turnaround of furtunes, Dimitrov responded in unerring fashion with a flawless 6-0 scoreline in 22 minutes to set up a deciding set shoot-out.

The teams will be honored at the White House for their achievements, and then spend the rest of the day sightseeing. The feud erupted as Trump was lambasting NFL athletes for kneeling in protest during the national anthem.
It soon became apparent that Dimitrov would not have the third set all his own way, though, as Sock composed himself and began to attack his opponent's awkward slice with heavier forehands.
