Sock Comeback Stalls In Houston

Jack Sock is working extremely hard to regain his status as an elite ATP player in singles but yesterday he fell just short again of scoring a valuable victory, falling to world no. 29 Cristian Garin 46 63 75.

It was another close, tight loss for Sock who buckled at the finish line again. Sock is 8-7 in all of his pro matches this year and currently ranked 138. But this was another match he easily could have won, if a couple of shots and points were modified slightly.

In Delray Sock lost to Opelka 76 67 16.

In Indian Wells Sock lost to Tsitsipas 67 63 67.

In Miami Sock lost to Kecmanovic 46 67.

So with a little more of the old Sock mojo, the 29 year old could easily be, instead of 8-7 in 2022, at least 12-3 on the year in singles, or even better if those wins could have been maximized into more wins.

Sock is right there, he’s putting himself in position to win most of his matches. He’s competing very well. If you saw his recent TV matches in Miami and Indian Wells, he’s playing high level tennis, he’s moving like a tiger, the power is still there, he’s just not performing at his best when it counts most. But that issue can be remedied. And Jack Sock can return to prominence as an ATP force in singles, like he still is in doubles, after just winning Indian Wells with John Isner.

The winner of four ATP singles titles in his career, Sock will next play the Sarasota Open ATP Challenger next week.
