Janowicz Sidelined By Knee Surgery

WEEK:  02.08.2016

Jerzy Janowicz was the unfortunate mover of the week.  His persistent knee issues forced him to have surgery earlier this year; thus, he had to withdraw from the Open Sud de France Tournament last week.  His return to the Tour is uncertain at this time as he tries to recover from this second knee surgery.  Unfortunately, he lost valuable ranking points since he was a finalist in Montpellier last year.  Janowicz’s ranking has been slowly declining in the past year due to some surprising losses.  No doubt injury has played a role in some of those losses either directly or indirectly; thus, we hope that he can recuperate quickly and fully from this latest surgery to become the force he once was a few years ago.


Jerzy Janowicz (POL) DOWN  26 99
Paul-Henri Mathieu (FRA) UP  25 68
Kyle Edmund (GBR) UP  18 84
Alexander Zverev (GER)* UP  15 70
Marcel Granollers (ESP) DOWN  15 98
Hyeon Chung (KOR) DOWN  13 69
John Millman (AUS) UP  12 66
Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) DOWN  11 81
Fernando Verdasco (ESP) DOWN 10 57
Tatjana Maria (GER) DOWN 22 90
Naomi Brody (GBR) UP  16 96

There were no changes in the rankings of the top ten members of both the ATP Tour and WTA.  They are all same and each held their position from last week.

*Special mention for our spotlight player, Alexander Zverev,  who reached a career high this week after his superb performance at the Open Sud de France, Montpellier.
