Mover of the week honors go to three players this week since the change in their ranking was almost the same: Lucie Safarova, Diego Schwartzman, and Juan Martin Del Potro. Del Potro won his first title of the season yesterday in Stockholm. This was his first title since 2014 and he did so without dropping a set the entire tournament. Schwartzman, like his countryman made it to the final of the European Open; however, unlike his countryman he could not get the victory, but gained some valuable ranking points instead. Safarova won one title this year; however, a slew of early round losses in the rest of the tournaments played did not do her ranking any good. She was unable to defend valuable ranking points from last year’s French Open final appearance. She did not play in New Haven where she was a finalist last year and she did not qualify for the WTA year-end finals. All in all it has been a singles season that Safarova would like to forget and she will look to recharge the batteries and come back in 2017 ready to stake her claim to the top 10 once more.
