Mikael Ymer Cracks Top Hundred Barrier

I have decided to change who gets the mover of the week honors, while I will from time to time go by who has the largest numerical shift, sometimes I will choose based on my own personal preference. Today I chose Mikael Ymer because I personally saw his effort at the US Open and I am happy to see him crack the top hundred for the first time in his career. He turned professional in 2015 and while he has never won an ATP Tour singles title, he won a doubles title in 2016 with his older brother Elias Ymer in Stockholm. At twenty-one, he is still quite young, and this is a huge step for him and I hope he will continue building on this and start the 2020 season going deeper in the main draws of ATP Tour level tournaments.
