SIGNIFICANT RANKING CHANGES FOR THE WEEK OF 10.29.2018
At twenty-eight years of age, Marius Copil, gets to a career high of 60. He bounded up the rankings by thirty-three places after his run to the final of the Swiss Indoors Basel and earned himself the mover of the week honors. This is arguably the best season of his career as he made it to two finals. Copil would have dearly loved to win his first ATP World Tour title before the season ended; however, the Romanian will have to wait until next season for that opportunity. Yet, he can take these positive results into the off-season and come back next year fit and ready to win his first title.
