NEW YORK (AP) — Jack Sock is finally back in the singles win column.

The No. 18-seeded American snapped a seven-match losing streak in singles matches on tour with a 6-0, 7-6 (4), 6-2 victory over Guido Andreozzi of Argentina in the first round of the U.S. Open.

It was Sock’s first victory in singles since beating David Ferrer in Rome in May. He is just 6-15 this year after finishing 2017 with a career-best ranking of No. 8.

It’s been a much better year in doubles, where Sock is 26-10 with four titles, including the Wimbledon championship alongside partner Mike Bryan.
