Vasek Pospisil Returns To The Top 100

WEEK: 05.22.2017

Vasek Pospisil is our mover of the week.  He won the Busan Open Challenger in South Korea over the weekend and did so without dropping a set. This victory has propelled him back into the top one hundred.  Once ranked as high as number twenty-five, Pospisil has suffered the indignity of falling out of the top 100.  For the last ten months he has been battling niggling injuries and low confidence and working hard to regain his top form.  With Roland Garros less than a week away, many are working hard in preparation; however, quite a few will not play at Roland Garros in order to get some much-needed rest and recovery.  Apparently, Pospisil, like Roger Federer has opted to pass on Roland Garros this year.
