Top-seeded Sock beaten in ASB Classic 2nd round
AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) Top-seed and defending champion Jack Sock made a surprise exit from the ATP Tour's ASB Classic in its second round Wednesday, beaten 6-3, 6-3 by unseeded German Peter Gojowczyk.
Gojowczyk, ranked 65th, moved the eighth-ranked Sock around the court with deep ground strokes which created angles the American was unable to defend.
After dropping serve in the fifth game of the first set, Gojowczyk broke Sock in the sixth and eighth games to take the set in 32 minutes.
Gojowczyk served strongly and broke the top seed in the seventh and ninth games of the second set to post his second win over a top-10 player.
