MOVER OF THE WEEK: Ricardas Berankis

mover week Berankis

At twenty-eight years old, time is running out for the Lithuanian who has been on tour since 2007 and has yet to win his first ATP Tour singles title. Berankis made it to two Tour finals in 2012 and 2017 but could not cross the finish line. He got to a career high of fifty in May of 2016 and currently is playing more on the Challenger Tour than of the main tour where he won three titles this season to give him enough ranking points to keep him in the top hundred. He will be looking to make a deep run at Roland Garros in hopes of significantly improving his rankings to avoid having to go through the qualifying rounds for the smaller tournaments later in the season.
