Jack Sock was born on September 24, 1992, in Lincoln, Nebraska, and is a recently retired American professional tennis player renowned for his potently powerful forehand, skills at the net, and successful double career.

Sock always grew up in a sports-orientated family, with his older brother Eric, who played college tennis, inspiring him to pick up a tennis racquet. Sock enjoyed a highly successful junior career, winning the 2010 US Open boys’ singles title and reaching the top spot of the ITF Junior rankings.

His life on the ATP Tour started in 2011, with silverware on the singles court first arriving in 2015 when he won Houston. He had not yet reached his peak, though, with three more titles coming in 2017 when he claimed the Paris Masters, Delray Beach Open, and Auckland trophies.

The run of form in the 2017 season helped him to a career-high ranking of 8, qualifying him for the end-of-season ATP Finals. The majority of his success, however, comes on the doubles court. The American has often teamed up with Canadian Vasek Pospisil, winning the 2014 Wimbledon title as well as the ATP Finals trophy in 2018.

He continued to excel in doubles, winning Wimbledon and the US Open in 2018. This stellar form helped him to a career-high ranking of number two in the world. While facing challenges with injuries at times, Sock hasn't given up on his career for a long time.

However, at 31 years of age, Sock announced that the 2023 US Open would be his last event as a professional, retiring from the sport he had played since he was eight years old. Off the court, Sock is recognized for his friendly personality and sportsmanship.
