Atlanta, U.S.A.

The Canadian-American duo, playing in their second tournament together, are No. 10 in the Emirates ATP Doubles Team Race To London and are looking to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

"This year, Vasek and I - since that result - we've set aside a goal of trying to make the year-end championships," said Sock. "I think if we can just keep playing solid and winning matches the weeks that we can play together, then I think we have a good shot of making it.

"That would be pretty special for both of us to go back to London and be able to play in such a prestigious event."

Pospisil and Sock are planning to play together over the Emirates Airline US Open Series, with stops in Washington, Toronto and Cincinnati, before the US Open.

The pair upset four seeded tandems at Wimbledon, including top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan in the final.

"At Wimbledon, Vasek and I were in a lot of tough positions and we were able to get out of them and pull through there, so I think it just kind of gives you that sense of confidence that you can battle through a lot of things and come up in the big times," said Sock.

Also on Tuesday in Atlanta, Americans Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey teamed up for a 7-5, 6-4 win over Denis Istomin and Marinko Matosevic. Meanwhile, Kevin King and Michael Venus edged Divij Sharan and Donald Young 6-1, 3-6, 11-9.
