David Goffin’s 25-match winning streak came to an end on Thursday afternoon in the quarter-final round of the Winston-Salem tournament after losing in straight sets to Polish No. 1 Jerzy Janowicz. The match ended 6-4, 6-2 to send the world No. 52 to the final four of the tournament.
“I didn’t play so well the last few months. Luckily my tennis is looking really good and I am very happy,” Janowicz said. “I felt very confident on my second serve. I was going for it from time to time and I didn’t have any double faults. Someone told me I made 16 drop shots and won 11, so that’s a good percentage.”
Goffin’s streak began following his Wimbledon loss to Andy Murray, after which he won three Challenger tour titles and an ATP World Tour title in Kitzbuehel. He was looking for his ninth straight win on the ATP main tour.
Janowicz will next meet Sam Querrey, who defeated Spain’s Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 7-6(3), 2-6, 6-4 to reach the semi-final round of the tournament.
