Peter Gojowczyk scored one of the biggest wins of his career by defeating Fabio Fognini in the semifinal of ATP Geneva on Friday, 6-4 6-4. It’s been an impressive week for German so far, having defeated the four experienced opponents, Andreas Seppi, Ivo Karlovic, David Ferrer and Fabio Foginini.
While Gojowczyk could not win a main draw match in a clay tour-level event until last week (Rome Masters), the four opponents that he has defeated in Geneva this week has won a combined 21 tour titles on clay between them.
Peter Gojowczyk has played a lot of club matches in Geneva and feels comfortable here, “I feel well here in Geneva. Normally clay isn’t my best surface; I usually prefer hard court and grass. But here it is quite quick, and that helps my aggressive game.”
The 28-year-old Gojowczyk has made two finals in the ATP World Tour events so far in his career (both in ATP 250 series), lost to Francis Tiafoe in Delray Beach 2018 and defeated Benoit Paire in Metz 2017 (as a qualifier).
