Shelby Rogers Regaining Her Form

MOTW: Shelby Rogers

The mover of the week (MOTW) honors goes to American Shelby Rogers.  Great to see the American playing well again.  This was her second quarterfinal showing at a major and she will be eager to keep building on this. After left knee surgery in 2018, she is happy her form is improving.  She knows it will not be an overnight recovery, but the American is eager and excited to have the opportunity to play tennis again. Unfortunately, the truncated tennis season does not help, but she is hoping to keep improving her form.  Hopefully, she will soon be lifting that first singles trophy.
