ATP rankings: Jack Sock rises to career-high No. 60
Jack Sock moved up to a career-high No. 60 in this week's ATP Tour rankings.
Sock, 21, has climbed 16 spots over the last three weeks thanks to semifinal appearances at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships and Atlanta Open. The Lincoln, Neb., native is now the No. 2 American, behind John Isner, who defeated Sock in the Atlanta semifinals on Saturday. Isner went on to defend his title and remain at No. 12.
Sock also partnered with Canada's Vasek Pospisil to win the doubles title in Atlanta, making them 2-for-2 as a team after upsetting Bob and Mike Bryan in the Wimbledon final earlier this month. Sock and Pospisil are up to No. 7 in the race for eight qualifying slots at the ATP World Tour Finals in November in London.
