Jack Sock wins Paris Masters as Andy Murray drops out of top 10
• American beats Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic 5-7, 6-4, 6-1
• Injured Murray falls to No15 in year-on-year rankings
Jack Sock, a name easier to remember than some of his past performances, blasted an even lesser known outsider, Filip Krajinovic, off the Bercy court on Sunday to win the Paris Masters and claim a debut place in next week’s season-closing ATP World Tour Finals in London.
Both finalists in the last Masters tournament of the season – even through the gauze of television – showed touches of art and delicacy to go with their grit in just under two hours, filling a vacuum left by the absence of the game’s big hitters.
