    Even with the weapons Sock possesses in a big serve and powerful forehand, Sock needs to learn when and where to use these weapons in match play.

    So after all those Gold Balls and competition against the best players he still doesn't know where to hit the ball ?

    to me Sock is opposite of what you said.. I feel his serve is not big enough ,and his forehand is not big enough for pro tennis.. he wins because of his tennis IQ and court savvy ... but as one gets to the pro level ,they better big weapons ...

    I think Sock has a great game. I am looking forward to see where the next year or so brings him.

    At this point, I think Sock has more of a chance to make a decent pro career then Harrison?

    Agree, competition on pro tour is on a different level than juniors. IMO, just to be among the top atp 200, one must have not one but several weapons in their game.

    This thread should be moved to pro section.

    Sock is scheduled to play at a futures tournament I am stringing at this coming week.

    I really enjoyed watching him at the Open this past year (singles and mixed). I think for a young kid he has a good tennis mind. Big weapons, and likes to come to net (mix it up). Was happy to see him win the mixed title.

    I thought he should have went to college and got a degree than maybe tried turning pro, it is tough competition out there right now.

    The quote about his serve is from someone else not me I just get a kick how this kid has the talent he just needs the focus and a serious work ethic it takes at the pro level!!
