THE LOWDOWN

PETER GOJOWCZYK

  • Peter Gojowczyk entered this year’s Australian Open with six losses to his name and just one victory in his previous appearances at the event but he was able to add a second win in this year’s first round.
  • The 30-year-old overcame American Christopher Eubanks in four sets with a dominant showing in the fourth set sealing the win as he showed a good response to losing the third set.
  • Gojowczyk has faced Carreno Busta twice in his career so far but lost both of those occasions against the man two years his junior with the German failing to take a set from the Spaniard in either match.

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA

  • Pablo Carreno Busta was given a slight scare against Jozef Kovalik in their first round clash in Melbourne but the 27th seed ultimately prevailed to set up this meeting with Peter Gojowczyk in round two.
  • Carreno Busta won the first set against the Slovakian ranked number 139 in the world and despite then losing the second, he swept his opponent aside in the third before coming out on top in a tie-break in the fourth set to seal the win.
  • The Spaniard’s first three appearances in this event resulted in first-round exits but he has followed that up by making at least the third round in the last three years here and he will look to continue that record by coming out on top in this second-round clash.

THE PREDICTION

Pablo Carreno Busta has made at least the third round in each of his last three appearances in Melbourne and he will be eager to extend that run as he faces Peter Gojowczyk. His German opponent on the other hand has never progressed beyond the second round of this tournament and he knows the task in front of him is likely too much for him with Carreno Busta able to advance in comfortable fashion.
