SIGNIFICANT RANKING CHANGES FOR THE WEEK OF 05.14.2018
Dusan Lajovic made it to his first Masters 1000 quarterfinals at the Mutua Madrid Open and this accomplishment earned the twenty-seven year old the honors of mover of the week. The Serbian is nine spots shy of his career high ranking and if he keeps playing at this level he may be able to surpass that ranking this season. The French Open is rapidly approaching and Lajovic will no doubt be hoping to go far in the draw.
