Sock big target for Federer


It was early in the match, and Roger Federer ended up winning it in straight sets.

So he could laugh at ATP Finals rookie Jack Sock’s move – a “big” distraction that caused him to make an error on what appeared to be an open court sitter.


“It was a big distraction, I’ll tell you that, because it was very big,” Federer said. “That’s what I should have aimed for. That target was bigger than the down-the-line court that I had.”

Federer said it was hardly the first time he’d seen it. But never on such a big stage.
