With his versatility to excel in both singles and doubles, Jack Sock has proven a Laver Cup standout. He amassed the most points for Team World across 2017 and 2018, now returns for a third appearance in 2019. A former top 10 player in both singles and doubles, the four-time Grand Slam doubles champion is on the comeback from a broken thumb that sidelined him for six months earlier this season.
After finding his mother’s racket as an eight-year-old, Sock quickly fell in love with the sport. Growing up in Kansas, Sock won four state championships in high school before claiming the US Open boys’ singles title in 2010. His nickname is ‘Showtime’ – reflective of his extroverted personality. He is close to older brother Eric, a college player who he has teamed with in tour-level doubles, and lists Team World teammate Nick Kyrgios as one of his best friends on tour.
Sock soared to a career-high singles ranking of No.8 after a stellar end to his 2017 season, winning a first Masters 1000 title in Paris to qualify for the ATP Finals. His doubles ranking peaked at No.2 in 2018 after teaming with Mike Bryan to win Wimbledon and US Open titles. Sock is a two-time Olympic medalist, winning mixed doubles gold alongside Bethanie Mattek-Sands and doubles bronze with Steve Johnson at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
