Tennis careerEdit

2014: Cracking the top 100Edit

Gojowczyk began the year by reaching his first tour-level semifinal at Doha as a qualifier, defeating No. 6 seed and countryman Philipp Kohlschreiber en route, before losing to Rafael Nadal in three sets (taking the first).

After qualifying at the Australian Open he broke into the top 100 for the first time in his career.[2]

In April, he defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in five sets in a Davis Cup World Group quarterfinal tie.[3]

Gojowczyk reached the quarterfinals of Halle in June, defeating world No. 9 Milos Raonic in straight sets in the second round.

At the US Open, he defeated Benjamin Becker in straight sets in the first round.

He ended the year as world No. 79.

2017: First ATP titleEdit

Gojowczyk reached the semifinals in Newport in July.

In September, he won his maiden ATP title at the 2017 Moselle Open as a qualifier in Metz, defeating Benoît Paire in straight sets in the final.[4]

2018Edit

Gojowczyk was runner-up at the Delray Beach Open and the Geneva Open.

Playing styleEdit

Gojowczyk possesses a fast, accurate first serve and great finishing power off both wings. He has a hard-hit, "clubbed" forehand with a long takeback, similar in some ways to Xavier Malisse. His backhand is particularly solid in terms of relative groundstroke quality, opting for frequent injections of pace, whilst not shying away from the down-the-line shot.
