Mover of the week is Maria Sharapova, who was a semifinalist at last year’s Wimbledon. She is currently off the Tour because of a two-year suspension due to testing positive for Meldonium (a PED); therefore, she was unable to defend those points and her ranking has dropped precipitously. Sharapova is set to appeal her suspension next week.
