Sock Wins Paris Masters, Secures Spot in ATP Finals

PARIS – American Jack Sock rallied on Sunday from one set down to beat Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 in the Paris Masters final, clinching his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title and the last spot in the eight-man ATP Finals.

“There have been a lot of firsts,” Sock said during the trophy ceremony.

“It started at the French Open with my first fourth round of a Slam, now I’ve won my first Masters 1000 in Paris, this will be my first time in the Top 10 and this will be the first time making the year-end (ATP) Finals,” Sock said.

“So there’s a lot going on right now emotionally and I can’t wait to enjoy it all with my team,” said Sock, who was ranked No. 22 in the world heading into Paris.

The 25-year-old Sock ended Pablo Carreño Busta’s hopes of playing in the season-ending tournament, leaving the 26-year-old Spaniard as the first alternate in London.

Sock is the first American to win a Masters 1000 title since Andy Roddick in Miami in 2010.

In a match that lasted almost two hours, the players traded breaks early in the first set, but the 25-year-old Krajinovic ended up taking it 7-5.

Sock responded immediately, breaking Krajinovic in his first service game of the second set.

Sock’s momentum continued in the third set, and he won five straight games to win his first Masters 1000 title.

The Paris Masters is one of nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events, which are the biggest tournaments on the men’s tennis calendar after the four Grand Slams and the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals.

The year-end tournament will be held in London Nov. 12-19.
