the norwegian Casper Ruud gave Europe its first point in the Laver Cup, which the American lost JackSock, by 6-4, 5-7 and 10-7.
Ruud, who was two points from victory in the second set, needed a ‘super tie break’ after losing the last three games of the second set. Despite starting 0-3 down in the super tiebreaker, Ruud recovered and confirmed his favoritism against the American, who has seen better times and is now ranked 128th.
A former top ten and three-time Grand Slam doubles winner, Sock has suffered a number of injuries in recent seasons, but continues to be invited to a Laver where he is the tennis player with the most doubles wins.
Sock will take the court again tonight with Frances Tiafoe for a doubles match against Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
