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.
