Donaldson’s Amazing Miami Run

The mover of the week is Jared Donaldson, who made it all the way to his first Masters 1000 quarterfinals in Miami.  He fought off elimination in the first round and from there he only got better. Unfortunately, Milos Raonic was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to a persistent hamstring injury and Donaldson was propelled into the quarterfinals.  He came up short against his red-hot countryman, Jack Sock.  He lost pretty easily, perhaps because he was so anxious at the occasion; however, he will learn from the experience and build up his arsenal for such future opportunities. He came away from the tournament with valuable ranking points and is now at a career high of 75.
