(April 12, 2015) In an all-American final, Jack Sock took down Sam Querrey 7-6(9), 7-6(2) to win the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships, his first ATP World title.
Sock saved three set points in the first set tiebreaker in a match which had a 2 hour and 20 minute rain delay
“It feels incredible,” said Sock. “Clay is my favorite surface… it feels surreal. It feels incredible, and to have friends and family here to share it with me feels even better.
“I put in a lot of hard work before I came back. I had almost nine weeks in a row off the court in the gym getting my body ready to come back. To come here and win is a very incredible feeling and I’m going to savor it for a while.”
“Jack’s tough,” said Querrey. “He has a big forehand and on heavy clay like that, he’s a tough guy to beat… that’s my first final in a long time, so I’m feeling good.”
The 22-year-old Sock will move to a career high No. 36 in the rankings on Monday. He is just the sixth American to win the United States’ only men’s clay-court tournament.
