Not much went right for Jack Sock on Thursday at Wimbledon.

Sock fell to No.8 seed Milos Raonic 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in the second round in London.

Sock, who won four Class 6A titles at Blue Valley North and was playing singles at Wimbledon for the first time this year, appeared agitated to some observers and called for the doctor toward the end of the opening set.

He was able to continue but couldn’t get things going his way.

Sock finished with eight double faults, five aces and 18 unforced errors. He never had a break point against Raonic, who has now beaten Sock in three of four career meetings as a pro.

Raonic, who advanced to the third round for the first time in his career, had 13 aces with one double fault. He had 14 unforced errors in the match, which lasted 1 hour, 43 minutes.

“It came down to putting up a solid level of concentration to win in three sets,” Raonic told reporters after his win. “If you slip up on grass concentration it can hurt a lot.”

Sock is still alive in men’s doubles. He and partner Vasek Pospisil were scheduled to play Robin Haase and Jesse Huta Galung later Thursday.
