Sock beats Krajinovic to win Paris Masters

07 Noviembre 2017

PARIS:Jack Sock of the United States ended France's Julien Benneteau's fairy-tale run at the Paris Masters tournament with a 7-5, 6-2 win in the semi-finals.

"It started at the French Open with my first fourth round of a Slam".

Despite the defeat, Krajinovic will climb to a career-high 33 in the rankings on Monday and the 25-year-old is aiming higher. Who will win the World Tour Finals this year?

"I was starting to play better and better and I broke the top 100 a couple years ago and then all of a sudden they saw that I had an extra bone in my wrist", Krajinovic said.

Krajinovic, however, took the positives from the week that was in Paris.

Sock had dropped serve eight times going into the final and Krajinovic brought up the first break point of the match in game five.

Sock hit back straight away, grabbing the break in the opening game of the second set.

"When I served for the match my hand was shaking", Krajinovic said. For American tennis fans, the rise of Sock is a great story for 2017. It looked like he would be 13-17 in his last 30 matches of the season when he trailed Kyle Edmund 5-1 in the third set of their second-round contest. Sock has never won a Masters title and can qualify for the season-ending ATP Finals in London if he does so here.

"It definitely hasn't sunk in yet", Sock said after the win at Bercy.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Sock defeated Filip Krajinovic 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 for the victory in just under two hours. I didn't do it today.

Krajinovic had other ideas as he won seven of the nine following points to reach his first ATP final, triggering wild celebrations in his camp.

But Goerges broke serve in the ninth game and a fuming Vandeweghe soon threw her racket onto the ground in frustration.

The world number 77 was 3-0 down in the deciding-set tiebreak but he kept his composure to prevail on the first match point.

"I think she was very happy to give the trophy to a German player". Krajinovic hit back, but Sock closed out the set on serve, forcing a decider.
