Despite the paucity on tournaments currently on the ATP and WTA Tours, as the season has ended for the WTA Tour and the ATP Tour is on its final tournament in London, players’ rankings are still being affected. Some because they are playing and winning on the Challenger Tour and others, simply because points are falling off from lack of play. Ricardas Berankis is the mover of the week because his ranking changed the most when it fell seventeen places after failing to defend his Challenger Title won in Ortisei, Italy last year. No doubt every player wants to end their season on a high and for some just ending their season in the top 100 is a great accomplishment. Everyone will spend their off-season working to improve their game for the 2017 season; however, those who fall out of the top 100 will be especially motivated to spend the off-season furiously working to get prepared for the 2017 season, which is less than two months away. The year-end number one ranking has been decided on the WTA Tour, and that honor goes to Angelique Kerber. The men will battle to the last second to see who will end the year as the number one ATP player. Will Novak Djokovic reclaim his throne or will Andy Murray end his season on the ultimate high?
