Jack Sock has retained his USTA National Boys 18s Championship. Sock was the top seed and cruised to a win in the final 6-3 6-0 over Mitchell Frank.
Frank, who had beaten Sock at their last meeting back at the 2009 Orange Bowl was just unable to compete. Frank gave away a lot of free points and just couldnt handle Sock’s serve.
“Things obviously could have been a lot different if I had gotten broken there,” said Sock, who needed only an hour to retain his title and collect his 23rd gold ball. “I was fortunate to get out of that game.”
“I felt I was dictating a lot of points and I feel when I’m dictating a lot of points, hitting a lot of forehands in the middle of the court, I’m going to do pretty well,” said Sock, who ended the match with a 125 mph ace. “With serving well, and putting a lot of returns back in play, getting in points, I think I was able to force some errors, and the momentum just took it.”
