MOVER OF THE WEEK: Andrey Rublev



The mover of the week honors go to Andrey Rublev. Rublev fell thirty-three places to number seventy-one when he lost in the first round of the US Open. The Russian was a quarterfinalist last year and his inability to defend those quarterfinal points resulted in a decline in his ranking; however, he is still young. At twenty years old he is just growing into his game and there are still a few good tournaments left in the season where he can make an impression and potentially regain those ranking points.
