ATP’s most improved players in 2012


Most Improved Player of the Year: Marinko Matosevic. Already well into the prime of his career at 26 years old, Matosevic started the season outside the Top 200 with a mere three career ATP match wins. He earned 17 alone in 2012, which propelled him to a current ranking of 49th in the world. The Aussie’s campaign included a runner-up in Delray Beach, a semifinal in Los Angeles, and two Challenger titles.

Marinko Matosevic was born on the 8th of August 1985 in Jajce, Bosnia-Herzegovina. His family immigrated to Australia when Marinko was a small child. Now calling Melbourne home and representing the nation on the world stage, Australians and the tennis community are extremely appreciative of having such a talented player in their midst.

Other nominees: Jeremy Chardy, Juan Monaco, and Go Soeda.

Other possibilities: Paolo LorenziBenoit Paire, Albert RamosLukas RosolAndreas Seppi, and Grega Zemlja
