Though there were only four journalist at Sock’s main interview room post match press conference (three journos from US) Sock fielded several questions regarding his seemingly inevitable major breakout win against a Big Four-Big Five colossus (though he did beat Nishikori in Indian Wells last week). Yeah, Sock sounds absolutely reader willing and eager to lumberjack Nadal back to Spain. Take a look at Sock’s pre-match confidence.
