Sock advances in Atlanta Open
ATLANTA (AP) --- Jack Sock beat Alejandro Gonzalez 6-2, 6-4 in the first round
of the BB&T Atlanta Open on Tuesday.
Sock and partner Vasek Popisil won the doubles title at Wimbledon earlier this
month, upsetting the top-ranked team of Mike and Bob Bryan in the finals.
The 21-year-old Sock said doubles success on the greatest stage in tennis has
boosted his singles game.
Sock finished off Gonzalez in 1 hour, 6 minutes by winning 89 percent of his
quality first serves, and relying on his forehand to break Gonzalez's serve
twice in the first set and once in the second.
Eight of the first nine first-round matches lasted two sets Tuesday.
In the only three-set match, Robby Ginepri beat Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine
7-6, 3-6, 6-0.
