Second Serve

 


By Erik Gudris

Jack Sock earned a tough five set 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, 4-6, 7-6(2) win in his opening round US Open match. That despite an inspired winner from his opponent in the late stages of their match.

Sock faced off against Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas in their first round match. Both entered knowing that Cuevas beat Sock in straight sets when they met in the same exact round of last year’s US Open.

After battling through five sets, they found themselves in a final set tiebreak. Trailing 0-2, Cuevas pulled off what has to be the shot of the tournament so far with this outrageous winner struck from the seat of his shorts.




Sock didn’t let that incredible moment get to him. The American battled through the tiebreak and eventually fired down an ace on match point to seal the five set win.




Sock, who last won a main draw match at Delray Beach earlier this year, will next face No. 32 seed Adrian Mannarino of France.
