I had something elaborate to post but I accidently pressed enter too soon on the first thread I made :o

Anyway, Charly did it again bitches! Miami masters is not the place you want to play Charly Berlocq as a WC American in R1.

New generation chokers is growing up.

Seriously, Sock wasted so many oppotunities, Berlocq had 30-40 almost on each serve. Sock had 2 set points at 5-4 40-15...
Good for legendary Carlos Berlocq.

Seriously, Jack is 18, one of his first events on this level, he'll learn from this and grow. Obviously he blew many chances in this match but I'm sure he was nervous and this is all a learning experience. His serving stats were not good enough and that is something he should look in improving.

Is it impossible for anyone to serve 60%?

Exactly. Sock has barely even played at an ATP level

Good performance by Sock. He could win a set, but Berlocq is more experienced.

Agree with you. It was the expected result but Charly is the sort of players that is vulnerable to beat on hard courts. Jack needs to spend more time on Future and Challenger events. He has a long road to play and succeed on this sort of events yet. Definitely a big project.

Charly may have chances against Gulbis if he keeps playing as bad as he did the whole year. Good luck for him :yeah:

Expected, but still very hard. Berlocq really is awful on hc. Don't even know why he is playing here. he isn't even good enough for atp clay, let alone a tms on hc. he needed the easiest draw he could get to win a match. was this his first atp hc win ever?

Second, he beat The Don 6-0 6-0 at Miami 2006 :haha:

What about prize money and loads of points for a single win? :wavey:

And no, it's not his first win, he double bageled Young few years back.

guy has earned about 1 million $ in his whole career
why shouldn't he play a masters event when he has a direct entry?

Because he wasn't in IW and he would have lost to 99 out of 100 guys here.

He had direct entry to IW but chose not to play there for whatever reason.

Put a sock in it. Jack is going alright and this was a decent showing.

Good to see that the US wont have any decent player apart from Harrison in the future. Always good when the arrogant yanks are a major fail :)

Charlie is actually younger than Roger, Hewitt or Duck; people seem to think he's from Schüttler's generation :spit:

This was won in pure experience but I think Sock might have won a set or even the match if the court was somewhat fast ;)

It is funny. But in all reality, everyone should be hoping for some good young Americans to come up. It'd be good for tennis as far as $$$ and notoriety of the sport. More $$$=better athletes decide that tennis is a viable option=better athletes in the game and advancing it forward.

Ah more bigotry... tsk tsk... jealous much?

Ryan Harrison is a grade ahead of Jack Sock - so he has actually graduated from high school and is playing tennis full time. Jack Sock has yet to graduate from high school and after he will likely go to college (Go Big Red Tennis!) If you're not American, then take my word for it, the months separating their ages make one "a year older" for purposes of school in the areas of the country they're growing up in. Whatever he does, the point is that Jack Sock is a boy going to a school for children. When he's done with tennis practice he goes home and does algebra. His story is unwritten. He may or may not be the future GOAT - we'll all have to wait and see.

I suspect that the NCAA will be able to continue to churn out John Isner/Sam Querrey caliber players as long as we can stand watching them play. I don't have any doubt that we'll continue to see 5 to 10 Americans in the top 100 pretty much as long as tennis is player. Gone forever are the days where we'll of 5 or 6 in the top 10.

and you should thank there are 5-10 americans in top 100. That's just becouse 50% of ATP Tour is played at USA. If not, I think there would be 5 players max on top 100.
