Sock's Classy Sportsmanship Display
The American impressed fans on Thursday in Paris
Jack Sock showed more than just great tennis during his third-round win on Thursday over Richard Gasquet at the BNP Paribas Masters. The American also displayed an amazing level of sportsmanship in conceding a point to his opponent.
With Gasquet serving at 1-5, 40/40, the Frenchman hit an untouchable serve that was called out by a line judge. But rather than make Gasquet challenge the call, Sock acknowledged the ball was in and gave the point to Gasquet. The Parisian crowd appreciated Sock’s class and gave him a long round of applause.
Sock went on to win the match over Gasquet, 6-2, 3-6, 7-5. He will play John Isner on Friday for a place in the semi-finals.
