Henri Laaksonen v Peter Gojowczyk Head to Head
Though Laaksonen and Gojowczyk have never been involved in a career, head-to-head meeting till date, there could be plenty of thrills and spills in store for their first-ever clash if their performances in previous rounds are anything to go by.
Laaksonen Takes Down Garin
Though he has been around in the men’s circuit for a while now, Laaksonen, by most estimates, is yet to come of age. Until now, that is!
The 29-year-old Swiss, who doesn’t have a single Tour title to his name as yet, has raised visions of lifting his maiden championship trophy at the biggest stage in the sport – the Grand Slam.
After recording three wins on the bounce to clear the qualifying rounds, Laaksonen, who is currently ranked comfortably outside the top-100 in singles, profited from the momentum from his previous wins to grind out a hard-fought victory over veteran Australian star John Millman.
The win saw the Swiss set up a second-round showdown with crafty Chilean Cristian Garin. Going into the match with little to lose but a lot to achieve, Laaksonen fought back from a loss in the first set to turn the tables on the Chilean.
The match seemed to be heading for a predictable finish, with the Chilean already a set to the good and looking to tighten the screws on the Swiss.
However, Laaksonen mounted a stirring fightback, winning the second set in a tiebreak and claiming the next two by comfortable margins to record a memorable come-from-behind victory.
Between the in-form Swiss and a place in the fourth round stands experienced German Peter Gojowczyk, a journeyman on the circuit who seems to have struck form at the Flushing Meadows with a similar run of results as his third-round opponent.
Though playing some of the best tennis he ever has, Laaksonen would be wary not to take things for granted against the resurgent German.
Gojowczyk Outlasts Lajovic in a Close Five-Setter
A veteran of 32 with only a single Tour title against his name till date, Gojowczyk is starting to make waves of the kind that few of his fans would have hoped he would in the latter stages of his career.
Though placed at a faraway 141st in singles currently, the German made a mockery of ranking places in the manner in which he crossed the qualifying hurdles and sealed his passage to the main draw.
Opening his campaign against spunky Frenchman Ugo Humbert, Gojowczyk showed exemplary fitness, endurance and tenacity to not only stay in the contest over five sets but also come out a winner in the end.
Debunking concerns on whether, at 32, he would recover and be able to load up again in time for his second-round clash against Lajovic, the German showed that he still has enough gas in his tank to come out on the winning end of more than one five-setter.
With both players winning two sets apiece at the end of the fourth set, the match went into a decider. Feeding off the second wind, the German eventually pipped the Serbian to finish line in five sets.
Having scalped two top names in the circuit already, Gojowczyk would go into his third-round clash with Laaksonen high on confidence.
Laaksonen v Gojowczyk Prediction and Tip
While there’s no head-to-head history between them, Laaksonen and Gojowczyk have had similar runs in the tournament so far, which would put them at even-stevens going into this third-round battle. However, purely on account of him being placed slightly higher in the rankings currently and being three years junior to his rival, the Swiss should start as a slight favorite.
