Sock defeats Cilic to maintain semis push

Roger Federer retirement

After Sock's win, Federer can claim his 14th year-end semi-final from 15 appearances at the season wrap-up if he beats Zverev, 16 years his junior, in straight sets.

Sock recovered from the disappointment of losing the first set in fine fashion breaking his opponent's opening service game to repeat the feat from the first set.

'That was a tough one for sure, ' Sock said.

The American No 1 increased his advantage in the second set with a further break of the Cilic serve to move 4-1 ahead before he served out in style with an ace to force the deciding third set - the fourth time already this week that a match has gone the distance.

But the 25-year-old's momentum failed to carry through to the decider, where Cilic stormed into a 3-0 lead.

Sock claimed five points in a row to set up two match points and he converted the first when a Cilic backhand floated long.
