Spirited in nature and explosive in style, Jack Sock has been a standout performer since his big stage debut at age 19. Winning his first-ever tour match by defeating Matt Ebden in the first round of the 2011 US Open, Sock has since made the fourth round of Roland Garros and the US Open. There are also three career titles, along with the 2015 Wimbledon doubles title and doubles medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Born in Nebraska and raised in Kansas City, Sock took to tennis when he found his mother’s racket at age eight. Graduating from Blue Valley North High School just three months before his US Open debut, Sock compiled an 80-0 record in high school tennis and was the winner of four straight state championships.
Armed with a big serve and deadly forehand, Sock is experiencing the best singles season of his young career. While early titles in Auckland and Delray Beach bolstered the American to a personal-best world No.14, it was wins over Grigor Dimitrov and Kei Nishikori en route to the Indian Wells semifinals that hinted at even bigger things to come. Turning 25 on the final day of Laver Cup, Sock would love his birthday celebration to combine with another tennis high at this event.
Winner: Auckland, Delray Beach
SF: Indian Wells, Houston
