It was Jack Sock victory day at the BB&T Atlanta Open on Tuesday. Sock won both his singles and doubles first round matches. The featured evening doubles match offered Atlanta’s tennis fans the chance to see Sock alongside his Wimbledon champion doubles partner, Canadian Vasek Pospisil. The No. 1 seeds defeated the Columbian doubles team of Alejandro Gonzalez and Juan-Carlos Spir 6-4, 6-4.
Tim Smyczek also cruised through his first-round matches earlier Tuesday. Sock defeated Colombian Alejandro Gonzalez 6-2, 6-4 in 66 minutes, while Smyczek needed just 53 minutes to complete a 6-0, 6-2 rout of fellow American Ryan Harrison.
The 21-year-old Sock, who reached his first ATP World Tour semi-final two weeks ago in Newport, will next face 349th-ranked qualifier Michael Venus of New Zealand. Smyczek, 26, will meet eighth-seeded Marinko Matosevic. The Australian also recorded a 6-0, 6-2 victory Tuesday, dismissing last week’s Bogota semi-finalist Victor Estrella Burgos in 43 minutes.
Marietta, Georgia’s Robby Ginepri set a second-round clash with top seed and defending champion John Isner after recording his first tour-level win in more than a year on Tuesday at the BB&T Atlanta Open.
The 31-year-old finished strongly against Ukraine’s Sergiy Stakhovsky, 7-6(3), 3-6, 6-0, as he converted all three of his break point chances in the decisive set. It marked Ginepri’s first match win in ATP World Tour main draw action since reaching the Houston quarter-finals in April 2013.
Dutch lucky loser Thiemo de Bakker will face No. 2 seed and returning finalist Kevin Anderson in the second round after defeating Canadian qualifier Steven Diez 6-1, 6-2. Sixth seed Denis Istomin also advanced, defeating American lucky loser Rajeev Ram 6-1, 6-4.
