Jack Sock falls to Kacper Zuk in Russia

The Jack Sock comeback came to an unexpected end in the St. Petersburg Russia Challenger as he lost 63 62 in the quarterfinals to a 22 year old Polish player named Kacper Zuk.

Zuk is ranked 233 and has a career ATP record of 3-2.

Sock, now 28, won two rounds in Russia, defeating Cem Ikel in three sets and Pavel Kotov 64 63.

Currently ranked 273 after his disastrous 2019 where he lost all of his ranking points, Sock is still on the comeback trail to get back to the top ten. He is still working with coach Alex Bogomolov, with both based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

This will be a disappointing loss for Sock as he was expected to roll over Zuk and proceed into the semis (vs. Jiri Lehecka, ranked 332). Sock has won 166 career ATP matches (134 losses) and four singles titles, as well as a Wimbledon doubles title and Olympic medals in doubles and mixed doubles.

It’s been a difficult career stretch for Sock and fellow former young American prospect Ryan Harrison, who is currently ranked outside the top 400.
