MOVER OF THE WEEK
Filip Krajinovic is making his way back up the rankings. The Serbian was once ranked as high as twenty-six just last year and like so many athletes, he fell victim to injury. He seems to have recommitted to putting in the work to get back in the top fifty; however, it is not that easy. With every set-back, it becomes harder and harder to get the mind to stay focused, never mind the fact that the body is aging and must work harder to get the same results. Krajinovic made it to the Hungarian Open final over the weekend; unfortunately, he could not get by the red-hot Italian, Matteo Berrettini. Krajinovic will be playing this week in the Estoril Open and hopes to keep this form and take it one step further.
