The first round of an ATP 500 tournament at Washington, US (hard). There we have an interesting match between a formerly 8 ranked American and Australian, who has over 60% career win rate by playing on hard. To have more insights on this ATP Jack Sock vs Jordan Thompson match please check out the preview below.
Former world’s 8 racket has dropped out as far as 173 ranking at the moment. 26 years old American would probably like to forget this season already. Jack hasn’t played from January up till July, what means more than half a year due to some injuries. He’s also played 4 matches in 2019 but hasn’t won a single one of them. It finally looks like he’s ready to play at the highest level once again, but it will definitely require some time to get back on track after such a long period of time recovering from injuries. Sock is known for his good serve and as a local, he will definitely have a crowd rooting for him, but it might not be enough tomorrow.
25 years old Australian is currently being ranked 46th overall. He hadn’t had such issues as his tomorrow’s opponent and will be fully ready for this match. Thompson had a great run on grass this season: he’s managed to get into the final at Hertogenbosch, where he lost against A. Mannarino (66), and got into the semi-final at Antalya, where he lost against M. Kecmanovic (61). He’s also debuted on hard this year at Atlanta but fell short against C. Norrie (58) in 3 sets. He warmed up on the ground at Atlanta and should show up at this tournament. Tomorrow is a great opportunity to start the tournament on a good run because Thompson has all the advantages compared to Sock to win the match.
