"It's nice to have the fans" - Sock and Isner delighted with 2nd Indian Wells doubles trophy

Americans John Isner and Jack Sock won their second BNP Paribas Open title by defeating Mexico’s Santiago Gonzalez and France’s Edouard Roger-Vasselin 7-6(4), 6-3 for the trophy.

The wild cards saved all 11 break points they faced and found clutch shots in the big moments to earn the crown after 80 minutes in front of a thrilled crowd, which remained inside Stadium 1 following a memorable singles semi-final between Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz that lasted more than three hours. During the trophy ceremony, Sock said:

“From the bottom of our hearts, we wouldn’t enjoy playing out here if it wasn’t for the fans. It’s nice to have the fans back and to be playing in the States in front of our home fans is unbelievable. Thank you guys for staying, seriously.”

Isner added:

“Jack and I always enjoy our time here. It feels amazing to share the court with Jack, so thank you for playing with me. A huge thank you to [Tournament Director] Tommy Haas for the wild card, because without that, we would not have been able to play. So Tommy, we owe you dinner buddy!”
