Given that the first seed of the tournament and one of the main favourites R. Nadal withdrew from the draw in Cincinnati, Swiss R. Federer could be considered the first favourite to win the title. Nadal recently won the title in Toronto, and because of the upcoming US Open he decided to rest. We know that Federer was also doing so recently, and that tactics has so far proved to be very successful because both tennis players have returned to the very top of the world tennis.
Thus, Federer, with his 37 years of age, has taken the lead position on the ATP rankings several times this season, and he arrived in Cincinnati as the 2nd player of the world. The Swiss has so far managed to win 98 titles, three out of which are from this season. This year, Federer was the best at Australian Open, and tournaments in Rotterdam and Stuttgart. The biggest disappointment for this Swiss tennis player was at Wimbledon, where he lost the quarterfinals as the title defender, though he had the advantage of 2: 0 in sets.
Gojowczyk plays his best tennis season this season, and it has brought him to 39th position in the ATP rankings in less than two months, which is his best career rating. Up to this Masters in Cincinnati this rating was a bit worse, so Gojowczyk is currently in 47th position. When it comes to ATP Tour, Gojowczyk has achieved 17 wins and the same number of defeats.
In the previous 12 years of his professional tennis carrier, Gojowczyk has managed to win one ATP title last season at Metz tournament. It is interesting to note that this German tennis player has played two ATP finals this year and he has suffered defeats in both. He has lost the first finals at Delray Beach tournament, where he was mastered by F. Tiafoe, and he lost the second finals in Geneva by M. Fucsovic.
Federer vs Gojowczyk PICK
These two players have so far had no opportunity to play together. There is no doubt that this is a great temptation for Gojovczyk who has nothing to lose against the great R. Federer. The German has recently been defeated by Verdasco in the first round of the tournament in Toronto, so it is hard to expect him to seriously endanger Federer.
