Krajinovic Ends Season On A High


WEEK: 11.06.2017

The mover of the week honors go to Filip Krajinovic. Hampered by numerous injuries requiring multiple surgeries early in his career, the Serbian had doubts whether he would ever be able to come back and play at his best. He never gave up and while he has been doing damage on the ATP Challenger Tour (he won 5 titles this season); this was only his second main draw appearance on the ATP World Tour. Krajinovic took full advantage of Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal and made it from the qualifying rounds all the way to the final of the Rolex Paris Masters. He was one set away from getting the biggest victory of his career; however, he was denied by Jack Sock. Nevertheless, he will look to take this form into the 2018 season and we will be curious to see how he performs next year.
