(4) Tennys Sandgren d. Bradley Klahn, 6-3, 6-3

Will play Smyczek for a spot in the final

Quote:
Dec. 14, 2012

NORCROSS, Ga. -- Only four players remained in the field after the first day of the USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs.

Two of them are former Volunteers.

Playing on adjoining courts, Tennessee All-Americans Rhyne Williams and Tennys Sandgren finished within minutes of each other in their straight set quarterfinal wins to start the tournament Friday at Life Sport Tennis.

Williams defeated former UCLA All-American Daniel Kosakowski 6-1, 6-4, while Sandgren beat All-American Stanford star Bradley Klahn 6-3, 6-3.

In Saturday's semifinals, Williams will take on second-seeded Denis Kudla and Sandgren goes against top-seeded Tim Smyczek, the finalist at this year's Knoxville Challenger.

The winner of the three-day event earns the USTA's wild card into the main draw of the Australian Open and will be guaranteed at least $27,000 in prize money.

This week's tournament is nothing new to Williams, the 2011 NCAA singles semifinalist for the Vols. He has played this event the last two seasons, but this week brings a different perspective.

In past years, the eight-player draw has been stocked with grizzled veterans of the pro circuit trying to come back from injury and looking for a jump start into the first Grand Slam of the year. This time, the field is full of young up-and-coming players, five of whom played college tennis. Top-seeded Smycek is the "old man" of the group at 25 years old.

Instead of being one of the final players accepted into the draw and earning the first-day upsets as he has in the past, the Williams is seeded third and has the opportunity to play in the main draw of his second career Grand Slam event.

"The previous years, I had no expectations," said Williams, who is now No. 190 in the world rankings. "I was the underdog and I could swing away and really had no pressure. Not that I feel pressure this year. It's just that I'm one of the top three seeds. I'm happy to get the first win, and hopefully I can keep it going."

Williams experienced little trouble in his opening match. He said he was nervous to start, but once he held serve in the first game, he quickly took control against Kosakowski and jumped out to a 5-0 lead.

"Things always tighten up in the second set," Williams said. "Whether you like it or not, it's going to happen with these guys. Everyone's good. You've got to have close games and close sets."

Making his debut at the USTA's annual December event, Sandgren fought through a 15-minute service game against Klahn at 2-3 in the first set. Once he held serve, he immediately broke the former Stanford star and raced out to take the first set 6-3.

"That made me relax," Sandgren said. "That would have been a tough to lose a tight game on your serve like that. It would have been easy to go downhill fast."

Sandgren controlled the second set to move on to the semifinals.

Having grown up playing tennis with everyone in the field and training in Florida with others, there are no strangers across the net at this point for either Sandgren or Williams as the two find themselves just a pair of wins away from the main draw Down Under.

"It helps to have familiar people in your same shoes, but it's not fun to play each other though," Sandgren said. "It's kind of hard. Everyone here is friends, and that makes it difficult. You'd rather play somebody you didn't like.

"There's a good opportunity for all of us here two get a wild card, so we'll definitely put it aside and get after it."

Well I guess no more matching outfit with Williams

http://www.athleticdna.com/Tennys-Sandgren

Quote:
Tennys Sandgren
Age 21 (22 July 1991)
Birthplace: Gallatin, TN
Residence: Boca Raton, FL
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 195 lbs
Plays: Right handed
Turned Pro: 2011
Coach: Theron Cole


You could say Tennys Sandgren was born into the sport of tennis. His Father played professionally on the Satellite tour and his Mom was a serious league player. Tennys and his brother were introduced at a very young age and never looked back.

A top junior through the age groups, Tennys entered the University of Tennessee the top junior recruit in the nation, ranked #9 ITF. Tennys was an ITA All American in 2011 and reached the NCAA singles semi-final.

When asked about a pro career Tennys responded, “I first thought that I could make a career in tennis after I won back to back Futures Titles in July of 2011. Winning a Future used to seem impossible, but after I won two of them I felt that making a living playing tennis was an obtainable goal. It is important to always keep trying to improve. You never just stay the same. You are either going forward or backwards”.

Since turning pro Tennys has quickly risen up the rankings to 241 in the world. He made it to the 3rd round qualifying at the U.S. Open and has captured 4 singles Futures titles and two Challenger quarter finals. He has also finaled and won two Challenger doubles events with collegiate partner Rhyne Williams.

“I think ADNA best represents my competitive nature. The clothing business and the tour are incredibly tough and you have to work like an animal and grind every day.”

Default Athletic DNA Signs New Tennis Pro, Tennys Sandgren

Our Athletic DNA family is once again pumped to announce the addition of professional tennis player Tennys Sandgren (yes, his name is pronounced tennis) as the newest Pro Ambassador of the ADNA brand.

It’s pretty clear, with a name like this, that he was BORN FOR THIS!

Tennys originates from Gallatin, Tennessee, and was rated the No. 1 recruit in 2010. Tennys has competed in junior events at the U.S. Open, Wimbledon and the French Open … achieving a top 1,000 ATP ranking.

Our team had the chance to talk with Tennys about his career, what drew him to the ADNA line, and why he’s excited to rep for Athletic DNA. Take a look, and remember to follow and support all of our pros on Facebook & Twitter!




Tell us about how you came to play tennis?

Well tennis runs in the family. My dad played professionally on the satellite tour back in the day. My mom picked the game up when she was in her early thirties, and became a serious league player. My brother and I were introduced to the sport at an early age, through our parents, and we really just fell in love with it.

Talk about your first major win. How did it feel? Was there a crowd?


My first major win was against Benjamin Becker. He was the one seed at the Winetka Challenger, and fresh off a great performance at Wimbledon. I knew going into the match that my chances to win were slim, but that I definitely had a shot. I remember being ecstatic after I won. That match really gave me the confidence that I could compete with anyone out there, and has been a big step in my development path.

When did you decide that tennis was the career path you wanted to follow?

I first thought that I could make a career in tennis after I won back-to-back Futures Titles in July of 2011. Winning a Future used to seem impossible, but after I won two of them I felt that making a living playing tennis was an obtainable goal.

Did you have any handicaps or hardships to overcome in order to succeed?

I have been blessed to not have any handicaps to overcome, but I don’t think anyone can be successful in anything without overcoming a few hardships or roadblocks. I have had amazing parents, and a family who loves me and support me through any difficulties I may go through.

How do you mentally prepare for each match?

I try and just relax as much as possible. I like to listen to house and trance music to just keep stress away from my mind.

Tennys SandgrenHow important is practicing tennis verses just playing matches?

It is always very important to practice even if you are playing a ton of matches. It is important to always keep trying to improve; never settle for just staying the same. You are either going forward or backwards.

How did you hear about Athletic DNA?

I heard about ADNA as a junior when they first started to gain popularity. I loved how they sponsored juniors to help grow the brand.

What drew you to become a Pro for the ADNA brand?


I like the idea that we are both fairly new on the scene and that we have an opportunity to grow together. It is appealing to me to get in on the groundwork of something. It gives me the opportunity to be a part of something early that has the potential to become great.

What part of your personality do you think ADNA best represents?

I think ADNA best represents my competitive nature. This is a very tough business to get into, and I admire that ADNA has their foot firmly in the door. Likewise, going on tour is extremely tough and you have to be very competitive to grind away week-in-and-week-out.

What are your thoughts on wearing the Athletic DNA clothing while you play?

I am looking forward to playing in ADNA gear. I think that their designs are some of the best stuff on the market, and I like to think that being an athlete is in my DNA.
