Brooksby survives Coria test, Sock falls in Miami

It was a day of contrasting fates for Americans at the Miami Open, as NextGen star Jenson Brooksby advanced to the second round while compatriot Jack Sock was ousted from the tournament.

Brooksby rallied from a set down to defeat Argentine Federico Coria 3-6 6-2 6-3, pulling off the impressive victory after just over two hours. The American converted on 8 of 12 break point opportunities to score his first win over the veteran, and faces 18th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in the second round.

Conversely, Brooksby's country Sock failed to advance in his match against Miomir Kecmanovic. The Serbian produced a fantastic display to escape with the 7-6(3) 6-4 victory, matching Sock's power from the baseline. His consistent play paid off, as the American was unable to maintain a rhythm after dropping the first set tiebreak. Kecmanovic will face seventh seed Felix Auger-Aliassime in the second round.
