Interview with Champion Tennys Sandgren (USA) May 20, 2012

From Tennisfutures.net

Second seed Tennys Sandgren lived up to his expectations. The 20 year old former Tennessee Volunteer won the USTA Pro Circuit Men’s Futures Tournament at Harbor Island Athletic Club beating Bjorn Fratangelo in the final.

RP: Seeded at 2, what were your expectations coming into the tournament?

TS: I felt like I have been playing very well and my expectations were to come in and do my best. My only concern was fatigue and how my body would hold up. I just took it one game at a time.

RP: Is this your first time at the Harbour Island Athletic Club?

TS: Yea, this is my first time here I really like the environment and setting.

RP: Harbour Island Athletic Club is a clay court venue, what is your court preference?

TS: I actually enjoy playing on clay. Before school I loved clay. Then while at school I played on hard courts for so long I just got used to them. I like to slide a lot, on hard or clay, so as long as the clay on the court isn’t a thin layer I am

RP: How would you list your strengths as a player?

TS: My movement. I play really disciplined. I try not over playing and try to get my forehand in good situations.

RP: Being successful at the Futures level, what it’s going to take to move to the next level?

TS: I think it’s just going to take playing a lot in Challenger’s tournaments and being up to the competition.

RP: You turned pro last August, and you just won here at Harbour Island, what’s next for you?

TS: I have a week free, then I’m off to California for two 15,000s and then there’s a series of four challengers here in Florida.

Re: Tennys Sandgren- The Kid With The Awesome Name

He should be top-300 next week. He's not far away from getting into Grand Slam qualies.

Re: Tennys Sandgren- The Kid With The Awesome Name

Lost in a third set tiebreaker after having 2 match points. Pretty costly loss if you look at the draw.

And they all just left the University of Tennessee last year.

How UT didn't win the NCAAs in 2011 is beyond me. Well, they choked against UGA. That's what happened. But they should have won the whole thing outright. Sandgren was playing #3 for them. Williams #2, and Smith #1.

All three are in the top 300 now. And Smith is like 150 in doubles.

Re: Tennys Sandgren- The Kid With The Awesome Name

Rough draw for Sandgren getting Benjamin Becker in the first round. Would be HUGE, though, if he could pull out a W.

Re: Tennys Sandgren- The Kid With The Awesome Name

Good win. I was worried b/c he was slumping a little prior to this tournament.

Lost 4-6, 4-6.

All in all, good tournament, though.
