David Goffin has continued his rich vein of form, reaching the semifinals at a second straight ATP Masters tournament.
The world No.15 from Belgium advanced to the Miami Open semifinals with a 3-6 6-2 6-1 victory over Frenchman Gilles Simon.
The result follows his trip to the last four at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells a fortnight earlier.
What happy looks like.

“I served well today, that helped me in a lot of the rallies,” Goffin said. “There was a bit of wind. It was not easy to finish the points.
“I was missing volleys, smashes and easy point. But I stayed in the match and focussed on what I had to do. I started feeling better and better with each game.
“I’m happy with how I’m playing at the moment. I’m confident for the rest of the tournament and the season.”
Goffin next faces the winner of Wednesday’s later quarterfinal between Novak Djokovic and Tomas Berdych.
Goffin is also the first player ranked outside the Top 10 to reach the Indian Wells and Miami semis in the same year since Andy Murray in 07
