Jack Sock beat qualifier Filip Krajinovic to win his first Masters 1000 title in Paris and qualify for the ATP Tour Finals.
The World no. 25 came from a set down to beat Krajinovic, who’s ranked 77 in the world 5-7 6-4 6-1 in just under two hours.
25-year-old Sock is now the first American to win the tournament since Andre Agassi in 1999.
“There have been a lot of firsts,” Sock said during the trophy ceremony.
“It started at the French Open with my first fourth round of a Slam, now I’ve won my first Masters 1000 in Paris, this will be my first time in the Top 10 and this will be the first time making the year-end [Nitto ATP] Finals. So there’s a lot going on right now emotionally and I can’t wait to enjoy it all with my team.”
Victory meant he took the final place at the season-ending ATP Tour Finals from Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta.
