Tennis: Blister caused final misery, says Cilic

Marin Cilic said a painful blister on his left foot contributed to his Wimbledon tears as he slipped to a straight sets defeat to Roger Federer in the final. "I got a bad blister in the semi-final against Sam Querrey," said Cilic after his 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 loss. "The physios here helped me over the last 30 hours. They were with me constantly and did as much as they could. But I still felt the pain. It was all very tough emotionally." Cilic explained that his tears at 3-0 down in the second set were more a result of his disappointment at not being able to perform at his best rather than a legacy of the pain.

Why does it show Jack Sock as having to defend 45 points. I don't see where he played any of these 3 tourneys last year. Thanks for the explanation.
