WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Qualifier Jack Sock became the eighth American man to reach the third round at Wimbledon with a 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (1) victory over compatriot Maxime Cressy.

Those eight account for a quarter of the 32 players in the third round, the most for the United States at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament since 1995. It’s also the most at any major since the 1996 U.S. Open.

The match on No. 3 Court was completed after being suspended Thursday evening at 6-4, 6-4.

The 29-year-old Sock is a three-time Grand Slam champion in doubles with two of those titles coming at Wimbledon.

The 103rd-ranked Sock will next face fellow qualifier Jason Kubler of Australia.
