The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Lincoln native Jack Sock beat Filip Krajinovic 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 yesterday to win the Paris Masters tennis title and qualify for the season-ending ATP Finals in London, which begins Nov. 12.
It was the 16th-seeded American’s third title of the year, fourth overall and first at a Masters. It sends Sock through to the finals in London for the first time. He will break into the Top Ten for the first time as well, climbing to ninth.
