James Duckworth v Peter Gojowczyk Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first meeting between the 27 year old Australian and the German three years his senior.
Duckworth, a Pune Challenger Winner Three Months Ago
Like most of the field in Pune this year, Duckworth has never enjoyed success on the senior ATP tour, although he did reach the final of the Brisbane Open doubles in January 2016 with his partner Chris Guccione.
However, he has a more impressive record on the Challenger Tour, where he has won ten titles, four of them last year. The first three were in Bangkok, Baotou, China, and Playford, Australia. However, significantly, the most recent of those wins came last November in the same city where this event is taking place, Pune, at the nearby Shree Shiv Chhatrapti Sports Complex.
Since that victory he reached the second round in Adelaide, but lost in the first round of the Australian Open, beaten by Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia.
Gojowczyk, a Former Top Forty Player
Gojowczyk was once ranked as high as 39 in the world, at the same time as he was reaching ATP finals, winning the Moselle Open in 2017, and finishing runner-up at Delray Beach and at the Geneva Open a year later.
However, since those heady days a combination of injuries and loss of form have seen him tumble down the rankings, and he is now outside the top 100.
On his day he can still produce good results though, as shown last year when, as a lucky loser, he got through to the semi-finals of the Washington Open. He also has wins over Dominic Thiem, Matteo Berrettini and Fabio Fognini of Italy on his CV, although none of them have been in the recent past.
He had to qualify for the Australian Open, which he did by winning three matches, and beat the American Christopher Eubanks in the first round, until the Spaniard Pablo Carreno-Busta ended his run.
James Duckworth v Peter Gojowczyk Predictions & Tips
There is very little to choose between these two men and it could be a tightly contested match. However, Duckworth likes to play in Pune as evidenced by the fact that he won the Challenger event three months ago, and that familiarity with his surroundings may give him the edge.
