Jack Sock reveals how he felt after match point that finished Roger Federer's career

Jack Sock said it was "super fun" to be a part of Roger Federer's final match but also admitted that he went "numb" after the point that finished the Swiss career. On Friday night in London, Sock and Frances Tiafoe clashed Federer and Rafael Nadal in a doubles match at the Laver Cup.

Even though Sock and Tiafoe had the whole O2 Arena turned against them, they still managed to beat Federer and Nadal 6-4 5-7 11-9. "It's tough, I think," Sock said after the match. "While playing, it felt like a match.

Settled in while we were all bawling our eyes out there afterwards, but during the match, felt like a competitive match. Foe and I played him together for the first time, trying to bring crazy energy. Obviously had 99.9% of the crowd against us.

But it was super fun to just be a part of that match. I think we are going to be forever grateful to be a part of the GOAT's final match."

Sock went 'numb' after the match point

"I don't think it settled in until after.

When I hit that last shot, and realised it was over, it was, like, kind of went numb," Sock revealed. The 02 Arena was absolutely packed for Federer's final match. Tiafoe, who defeated Nadal at this past US Open, acknowledged that the arena was on Federer and Nadal's side.

"Man, his last match. Every point they win, the crowd erupts. Any time they had the Jumbotron, his face came up, they erupted," Tiafoe reflected. After the match was over, Federer addressed the crowd and gave a very emotional speech, during which he a couple of times broke down in tears.

For Federer, it was a memorable end to his career. While Federer and Nadal were playing, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray supported them from the bench. For many years, Federer was battling Nadal, Djokovic and Murray on the biggest stage. This Friday in London, they all gathered to give Federer a memorable sendoff.
