WATCH: Coco Gauff defeats Ons Jabeur to reach the quarterfinals at Roland Garros.
Every week, American players from the ATP and WTA tours step up to the plate around the world. Here are the top American movers and shakers that shined brightest this week:
1. Jack Sock
Champion, ATP Challenger (Little Rock, USA)
It has been a hot minute since Jack Sock has lifted a title – or even strung multiple wins together – but the American not only won the Challenger title in Little Rock, he defeated four seeded players along the way, culminating in a way against Emilio Gomez in the final.
2. Coco Gauff
Quarterfinalist, French Open (Paris, France)
In another stellar Grand Slam performance from the teenager, Gauff defeated two seeded players – Ons Jabeur and Jennifer Brady–to reach the quarterfinals at the French Open. This marked the teen's best Grand Slam showing, eventually losing to the champion Barbora Krejcikova.
3. Frances Tiafoe
Champion, ATP Challenger (Nottingham, Great Britain)
Another Challenger title winner, Tiafoe lifted the Nottingham trophy after dominating No. 6 seed and fellow American Denis Kudla in the final. The No. 2 seed only dropped one set en route to the title.
4. Lauren Davis
Semifinalist, Viking Open WTA 250 (Nottingham, Great Britain)
The world No. 89 may not have Viking blood in her, but she was still able to do some damage at the Viking Open in Great Britain. The American took down the No. 2 seed Alison Riske on her way to the semifinals before losing to Zhang Shuai.
