Kansas High School Tennis Champion Competiting in U.S. Open

Former Blue Valley North tennis sensation Jack Sock was hopeful of sticking around a little longer than one day in the 2011 U.S. Open doubles competition. But that wasn’t in the cards, apparently.


Sock and his men’s doubles partner Jackson Withrow lost their opening-round match to Mark Knowles and Xavier Malisse 6-3,-6-7 (5-7), 6-1.


The 18-year-old local tennis star, who recently announced his intent to turn professional, also is competing in the men’s singles bracket, and will face frenchman Marc Gicquel today in his first-round match in New York City.. A win will probably send him up against Andy Roddick in the second round.
