Score, report, and key facts
Both players managed to hold their serve for the entire set. The only difference was just 1 break that Steve conquered in the 5th game (3-2) before winning the set (6-4).
Johnson had a pretty good kick start of the set after breaking Sock in the 1st game (1-0). That break was the key and it was sufficient for Steve to win the set (6-4) since there were no other breaks.
At the end of the match, Steve scored 68 points vs. Sock’s 62 points.
Johnson served very well to win 75% of the points (30/40) behind his first serve, and he won 54% points (19/35) on his second serve. Steve didn’t lose the concentration in converting 67% of the break points that he conquered (2/3). On the other side, Jack wasn’t able to conquer any break point (0/7). That was one of the key issues for his demise.
After this match, the head to head between Johnson and Sock is 3-1 for Jack.
