While No. 13 Kyrgios has the higher ceiling—maybe the highest ceiling of anyone in tennis right now, if he could be bothered to pursue it—Sock, ranked No. 23, boasts a curious, dangerous weapon. Both men have huge, whippy forehands, but Sock’s might be the most heavily-spun groundstroke in the game. It’s almost unpleasant to watch Jack Sock hit it.

Look at all that wrist.
