Tennys Sandgren (born July 22, 1991) is an American professional tennis player competing mainly on the ATP Challenger Tour both in singles and doubles. Born and raised in Gallatin, Tennessee, he went on to play two years of college tennis at the University of Tennessee before launching his professional career.

Personal[edit]

Although Tennys Sandgren is a tennis player from Tennessee, he is actually named after his great-grandfather who did not play tennis and was not from Tennessee.[2]

Tennis career[edit]

Junior career[edit]

As a junior, Sandgren compiled a singles win/loss record of 70-38 (and 53-35 in doubles), reaching as high as No. 9 in the combined ITF junior world rankings in April 2009.[3]

Junior Slam results:

Australian Open: -
French Open: 3R (2009)
Wimbledon: 2R (2009)
US Open: 2R (2009)

College career[edit]

Sandgren was a January midseason addition to the Tennessee Volunteers' 2010 tennis roster, joining older brother Davey, who was a senior All-American on the team.[4] Coached by Sam Winterbotham and Chris Woodruff, the younger Sandgren immediately strengthened the middle of the Vols' singles lineup, going 10-0 in Southeastern Conference play at the No. 4 position to help the team win the SEC regular-season and tournament titles.[5] The team went on to reach the NCAA team finals that year as well.

As a sophomore, Sandgren reached the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championships, losing to teammate, roommate and doubles partner Rhyne Williams in three sets. He finished the season with a 37-6 record and his 10-1 record in conference once again helped the Vols to an SEC regular-season title. He finished his career with a 60-12 singles record (.833), the third-best career winning percentage in Tennessee history.[6]

He was also a member of the USTA Summer Collegiate Team after his freshman and sophomore seasons.

Pro Tour[edit]

Sandgren turned pro in 2011, reaching his highest ATP singles ranking of World No. 85 in November 2017 and his highest ATP doubles ranking of World No. 115 in January 2014.[1]
