Monaco Back In Top 100 With Houston Title

WEEK:  04.11.2016

Juan Monaco accomplished what he wanted over the weekend and his reward is that he is back in the top one hundred. Monaco has been battling numerous injuries late in his career and was sidelined last year due to wrist surgery.  Things looked pretty daunting for him as Jack Sock came out playing hard and fast, aggressively destroying anything Monaco sent his way.  Monaco looked helpless and lost the first set 6-3.  A well-timed medical timeout for his back injury came to his rescue.  The momentum shifted completely to Monaco and he quickly won the second set.  Sock tried to mount a comeback but it was a little too late to do much damage.  Monaco won his 9th career singles title with the 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 defeat of American, Jack Sock.
