Russian tennis superstar, Daniil Medvedev has made it into the semifinals at the 2019 ATP Citi Open in Washington D.C. At this stage of the tournament, Medvedev is set to play against Peter Gojowczyk from Germany.
Peter Gojowczyk enters this match having beaten Kyle Edmund in the previous round. It was a close match where Gojowczyk had to battle for 3 sets to get the overall victory. During the win, Peter Gojowczyk impressed with his serving. Peter Gojowczyk hit 14 aces which aided him to win 66% of his service points. Peter Gojowczyk won 93% of his service games and 3 return games during the victory. It has been a good tournament for Peter Gojowczyk as he has already beaten the likes of Milos Raonic and Andrey Rublev. That being said, this is expected to be a very tough match as Peter Gojowczyk is playing against the number 3 seed.

Taking all the information into consideration, I am going to pick Daniil Medvedev to win this match. Despite Peter Gojowczyk’s result in this tournament, the German is a much weaker player than Medvedev. Medvedev has been in outstanding form and I see him being good enough to win this match.
