Daily Trust - - OPINION -

Amer­i­can eighth seed Jack Sock boosted his chances of reach­ing the last four at the ATP Fi­nals with vic­tory over Croa­t­ian fifth seed Marin Cilic.

Sock won 5-7, 6-2, 7-6 (7-4) in the sec­ond round of group matches, af­ter los­ing to Swiss sec­ond seed Roger Fed­erer in his opener on Sun­day.

Fed­erer and Ger­man third seed Alexan­der Zverev later met in yes­ter­day’s sec­ond match in the Boris Becker Group.

The top two play­ers from each group qual­ify for the semi-fi­nals.

“That was a tough one for sure,” said Sock.

“It’s been an in­ter­est­ing morn­ing so far, the fire alarm went off at 4am and we had to exit the build­ing. But I love play­ing here in London, it’s an amaz­ing at­mos­phere, you make me feel like home.

“I’m just ex­cited to win and keep my­self alive.”
