Frances Tiafoe gets the mover of the week honors this week; unfortunately it’s not because of a positive result. Despite his talent, the young American has been struggling with consistency. This season he has only won five matches in nineteen contested; thus, it is no surprise that his ranking has fallen. He is hoping to have a good showing this week at the Shanghai Rolex Masters to keep his hope alive of making it to Milan for the NextGen ATP Finals.
