Andreas Seppi is the mover of the week. At 33 years old, he has been battling his way back up the rankings as he too has been recovering from injury. Once ranked as high as number 18, the Italian is finding it is not so easy to regain his form; however, he is still a threat. He has started this season on a more positive note, getting to the round of sixteen at the Australian Open and recently the semifinals at the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament. He is hoping that he will continue to improve on this form. Although Seppi has not won a title in singles since 2012; he will continue to fight to get back to that form that made him a contender.
