Barthel’s Ranking Gets A Boost

WEEK: 05.08.2017

The mover of the week is Mona Barthel.  Barthel has been affected by injury like so many other tennis players and her ranking fell out of the top 100.  The road back after injury is always difficult, some weeks you play well and some weeks you just cannot find you game and your ranking is further affected with every poor result.  She had not made it to a final since 2015 and winning the Prague Open title over the weekend has helped her ranking and will certainly give her a much needed boost of confidence going into the second Major of the season.

Thiago Monteiro (BRA) DOWN  19 100
Taro Daniel (JPN) UP  15 98
Hyeon Chung (KOR) UP  12 66
Kyle Edmund (GBR) DOWN  12 53
