Jack Sock made his pickleball debut in Charlotte impressing with his ability to adjust quickly to the game and triumph in his first two matches at the event.
Sock has been ranked inside the top 10 a few years ago but his tennis career has since tanked. The American isn't playing as much because he's not really competitive anymore however he looked great in this pickleball event. Speaking after the match, Sock highlighted the sport as a positive thing which goes against heavy pushback from much of the tennis community:
“I was excited to play. I love competing and I still love tennis, but to have another outlet is good and this is a fun way to get out there.”
He also confirmed that he will stick around in pickleball
“Obviously, down the road I’ll be involved in pickleball and playing a good schedule. I’m not sure about next year yet. Time will tell.”
