"The past few weeks, I thought my game was to the point to where I thought I could go out and compete with the top players in the world," said the 18-year-old Nebraskan. "I'm ready to make a full-time commitment to it." Sock’s best result on the pro circuit to date was a quarter-final showing at the Dallas Challenger in February where he lost to Matt Ebden in three sets.

That performance earned him a Wildcard for the main draw at the Miami 1000, where he went down to Carlos Berlocq – his only appearance in an ATP main draw to date. Sock also revealed that he has signed a deal with Adidas and will represented by the agency CAA Sports, whose clients include Dwayne Wade, Tony Romo and Novak Djokovic.
