Not much went right for Jack Sock on Thursday at Wimbledon.

Sock fell to No.8 seed Milos Raonic 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in the second round in London.

Sock, who played in high school at Blue Valley North, appeared agitated to some observers and called for the doctor toward the end of the opening set.

He was able to continue but couldn’t get things to go his way.

Sock finished with eight double faults, five aces and 18 unforced errors. He never had a break point against Raonic, who has now beaten Sock in three of four career meetings as a pro.

Raonic, who advanced to the third round for the first time in his career, had 13 aces with one double fault. He had 14 unforced errors in the match, which lasted 1 hour, 43 minutes.

“It came down to putting up a solid level of concentration to win in three sets,” Raonic said after his win. “If you slip up on grass concentration it can hurt a lot.”

Sock is still alive in men’s doubles. He and partner Vasek Pospisil advanced to the second round, defeating Robin Haase and Jesse Huta Galung 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 later Thursday. Up next will be a match against eighth-seeded Rohan Bopanna and Aisam Qureshi.
