Jack Sock and John Millman in a tense encounter

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.
