Conversation with Novak Djokovic hitting partner Jack Sock

Cool read with some cool insights from American teen prospect jack Sock about Djokovic. Last I looked Sock beat the #5 seed in junior boys singles and is still alive in the US Open junior draw. Seems like him and Djokver got on pretty well together...

Re: Conversation with Novak Djokovic hitting partner Jack Sock

Jack Sock? Is that a joke name? If not, I really feel sorry for the kid. What an unfortunate name.

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

Then I went back to his private court again, the next day to practice again with him. We had some pretty good hits together and just spending a little time together. I was just trying to do my best out there and make as many balls as I can in the warmups that I had with him.”

He lost to Chuidinelli in R1 US Open. He shows some promise, should probably go the college route.

Well maybe when Verdasco start subscribing to trying to do his best and making as many balls as he can he can stop bending over for Nadal.

Re: Conversation with Novak Djokovic hitting partner Jack Sock

Good interview, though the kid is not very articulate yet.
I agree Novak has a style of play that is very eye catching, he hits the ball super clean and when he goes for the lines, he's the best.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
