Juan Monaco shines in Houston
Text size Aa Aa

Argentina’s Juan Monaco outclassed defending champion Jack Sock in three sets to claim his second US Clay Court Championship in Houston on Sunday.

The 32-year-old, who also won the tournament back in 2012, had to dig deep and conceded the first set before finding his range in the second and the third, eventually winning through 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.

This was Monaco’s ninth career title and his return to form will be rewarded with a climb in the world rankings from 148th to 90th when they are published this week.
