US Open R3 : Almagro def. Sock 7-6 (3) 6-7 (4) 7-6 (2) 6-1

Better player lost.
I hope Sock can sustain this level of performance outside America. By the way, what about those missed break points ?
Plus, Sock needs to develop his tactics throught the matches. I love watching ballbashing but in order to achieve bigger goals,24/7 ballbashing will not help. Needs more variety.

As good as Sock played he's no different to a lot of other dumb ball bashers. Look of work needs to be done on him.

Better player definitely won Ridiculous claim, he breadsticked Sock, who made too many bad errors
Almagro went completely crazy at 4-4 in 3rd, but it somehow helped him, he saved 0-40

...now glance at the winners-ue ratio. if golubev and djokovic play, golubev will hit more winners and lose 2 and 2

52 winners and only 24 faults.from ALMAGRO.

He was not that good, but it was enough.

Sock has a lot of issues to work on.
His movement is not Top 100 worthy.
His variety is not Top 50 worthy.
Some good serves and shots though from the young american.
