Peter Gojowczyk (born 15 July 1989) is a German professional tennis player. He achieved a career-high ATP singles ranking of world No. 60 in November 2017.

Tennis career[edit]

2014[edit]

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).

In April, he defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in five sets in a Davis Cup World Group quarterfinal tie.[1]

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

He qualified for both the Australian Open and the US Open, defeating Benjamin Becker in straight sets in the first round of the latter.

2017[edit]

Gojowczyk reached the semifinals in Newport in July.

In September, he won his maiden ATP title at the 2017 Moselle Open in Metz, defeating Benoît Paire in straight sets in the final.[2]

Playing style[edit]

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.
