David Goffin Suffers Racquet-Smashing Meltdown at Rakuten Open

David Goffin barely makes the headlines for his on-court behavior. But the trend has somewhat started to change of late.

Just days after his phone rang on court to briefly disrupt the proceedings in Metz, the Belgian star has once again come into the limelight for all the wrong reasons.

During the first-round match against Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka, the 25-year-old suffered a lapse in concentration as he banged his racquet twice on the surface.

This, however, did little to affect Goffin’s performance as he pulled off a straight-set 7-5 6-2 victory to set-up a date with Czech Republic’s Jiri Vesely in the second round.
