Isner extremely clutch to steal the first set (won two points on return prior to Sock serving at 5-6 then started smacking winners), but Sock got increasingly irate after that, especially after a call went against him in the middle of the third set. Sock definitely still needs to work on his mentality.

Warm handshake at the end from Sock as well.

Sock won their last match because it was on grass (and not very good grass at that). Isner was always going to be the better player on a HC.

Sock is really remarkable in that he comes off as extremely unpleasant in every single match he plays. Donated games at the end of both sets, Isner will win this but could lose relatively early in Washington

Sock should have won this as well though I think, too many stupid mistakes in crucial moments though despite outplaying Isner a lot

While obviously hard court is the best surface to suit his servebotting, Sock is capable of that as well.
He isn't much of an all-round player like Blake or Agassi was, pretty one-dimensional game along with Johnny boy.

The worse of the 2 won, nothing new here.
