Jack Sock has been crowned as Delray Beach Open champion after Milos Raonic pulled out of the final with a hamstring injury.
The American was gifted his third ATP World Tour final thanks to the Canadian’s withdrawal and saw him win his second of the year.
Sock had already tasted glory in Auckland and he is set to jump back into the top 20 after his latest exploits.
In fact, the 24-year-old is projected to rise to a career-high 18th in the world when the rankings are released on Monday.
Sock has only lost one match in 2017, to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the third round of the Australian Open and he didn’t drop a set on his way to the final in Florida.
How Sock won the Delray Beach Open
Sock 6-4 6-1 Garcia-Lopez
Sock 6-4 7-6 (7-4) Johnson

Sock W/O Raonic
For Raonic it was less good news, with a right hamstring tear set to keep him out for several weeks.
The big-serving 26-year-old is without a title since Brisbane at the start of 2016 and he has had to pull out of his first final since his defeat to Sir Andy Murray at Wimbledon.
Elsewhere on Sunday, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga continued his terrific form in 2017 to beat Lucas Pouille in the Open 13 Marseille final.
His 6-4 6-4 win secured back-to-back ATP Tour final successes, after winning the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam just a week ago.
Tsonga will now climb back into the top 10 and is due to be ranked at world No. 7 come Monday.
