Jack Sock wins at ATP World Tour Finals despite 4am fire alarm

Horford leads way as Celtics win 12th straight

"It was probably one of the most annoying noises I've ever heard in my entire life", Sock said.

Jack Sock was woken at 4am by a fire alarm and had to leave his hotel, but he still found the strength to overcome Marin Cilic in a marathon ATP Finals round-robin match on Tuesday.

In a see-saw deciding set, the Croatian fifth seed started quickly and raced to a 3-0 lead before Sock, the eighth seed, steadied himself, cancelling out the break.

While Sock dropped his debut match against Roger Federer, he managed to score his first win in three dramatic sets over Marin Cilic, 5-7, 6-2, 7-6 (4).

Federer and German third seed Alexander Zverev meet in Tuesday's second match in the Boris Becker Group.

Both players held their serve for the remainder of the opening set until the former US Open champion secured a decisive break in the 12th game of the match to take the initiative.

"I think Jack is playing really good".

"That was a tough one for sure", Sock told Sky Sports' Annabel Croft during his on-court interview.

Sock, world No 1 Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem were all made to exit the building in the middle of a week when they are competing at the end-of-season ATP Finals. It has mostly been played on an indoor hard-court, with other stints on carpet, grass and outdoor hard-courts when it was staged in various cities before setting up home in London in 2009.

The top two players from each group qualify for the semi-finals and with top seed Rafa Nadal pulling out through injury Federer is now a massive odds-on favourite to win the tournament.

"Definitely not a great record, but I felt that I played even well past year", Cilic said.

"I'm just going to try to be a little bit more stubborn in my preparations maybe for the next match, and hopefully next year".
