60 Second Interview @CitiOpen With Dynamic Doubles Duo @JackSock & @VasekPospisil
A couple of years back, I jokingly called Jack Sock an Atlanta rock star due to the reception he received there at the US Open Wildcard Playoffs after his US Open Mixed Doubles title with Melanie Oudin.
That was nothing compared to the way he and partner Vasek Pospisil have been received this summer in Newport, Atlanta & Washington after taking the Wimbledon title earlier this month.
I spoke with them and I didn’t mince words. These guys are busy.
Individually, they’re both respected in singles and loved by the fans in their home countries.
Together, they’re the North American Dynamic Doubles Duo.
‘PopSock’ has moved up the rankings to #7 in the world and hope to qualify for the ATP year-end championships.
They’re committed to playing together throughout the summer and hopefully all the way to the 2014 ATP World Tour Finals title.
I hope the North American Dynamic Doubles Duo take this show all the way to the title in London.
And I, for one, welcome our new Doubles Overlords.
