WESTERN & SOUTHERN OPEN
Thrill Seeker Sock Visits Kings Island
by ATP Staff|
Jack Sock visited Kings Island theme park on Saturday on the eve of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati. The American lived it up on a series of thrilling rollercoasters alongside Danielle Dotzenrod as he featured in the Tennis Channel’s Tour Guide Show.
Along with his coach, Troy Hahn, and Australian Todd Langman, coach of Thanasi Kokkinakis, Sock rode the world’s longest wooden rollercoaster, The Beast, Vortex and Banshee, the world’s longest inverted rollercoaster.
"It was a lot of fun," said Sock. "I'm thankful to Tennis Channel for inviting me out to do this. I love rollercoasters. Growing up, I rode a bunch. So it was fun to come out here and be a part of it.
"The last ride, Banshee, was a lot of fun, especially sitting next to Danielle. Her screaming the whole time and [being] pretty scared was a lot of fun."
The 21-year-old Sock will open his Cincinnati campaign against Tommy Robredo and also features in the doubles draw alongside fellow Wimbledon champion Vasek Pospisil.
