Australian tennis player John Millman was involved in an uncomfortable incident with American Jack Sock today at the Indian Wells tournament.
The world number 58 won in three sets 7-5, 4-6, 6-3, but disagreed with Sock’s behavior at the net post-match.
After the two shook hands, Millman seemed to disagree with something he thought he heard. Sock replied, “I didn’t look at you, I smiled at you.”
To which Millman replied, “You said …” before the conversation was lost again in the audio.
“No, I didn’t,” Sock was then heard to repeat, to which Millman replied, “Yes, you did, buddy. And then you proceeded to tell me …[unintelligible]… but yeah, it’s my fault! “
Millman moves on to the round of 64, where he will face 10th seed Jannik Sinner.
Other Australians involved in today’s process did not do so well; Aleksandar Vukic and Jordan Thompson lost in straight sets to Pablo Andujar and Kevin Anderson, respectively.
