Mover of the week honors go Shuai Peng who won a title over the weekend on the ITF tour. With the season officially over for both the ATP and WTA Tours, players can still improve their ranking by playing on the ITF or Challenger Tours. Many of these players are hoping to improve their ranking enough to get a direct entry into the first Major of the 2017 season (the Australian Open); however, they must be careful not to over play. Every player needs to have an official off-season, it is not only good for the body physically to rest and heal from injury but also good for the mind to take a break from the mental stress of constantly being focused and motivated to win each point.
|PLAYERS (within the top 100)||SPOTS MOVED||NEW RANK|
|Guido Pella (ARG)||DOWN 13||72|
|Shuai Peng (CHN)||UP 19||84|
|Evgeniya Rodina (RUS)||UP 13||91|
|Nao Hibino (JPN)||DOWN 10||96|
ATP Tour: The members remained the same; however, there were a lot of changing of places amongst the members. Rafael Nadal fell to number 9; Milos Raonic is now at number 3. Stan Wawrinka fell one place down to number 4. Marin Cilic and Dominic Thiem both moved up one spot and Gael Monfils fell to number 7 (Roger Federer is still at number 16).
WTA Tour: there were no changes in the top ten members from last week. They all maintained their exact positions from the previous week.
SPECIAL NOTE: CONGRATULATIONS once again to Andy Murray, he won the season ending ATP World Tour Finals tournament and in doing so ended his season on an all-time-high as the year-end-number one ranked player.
