Tennys Sandgren started playing tennis at the age of 5 with his family. Nicknamed “Sang”, Sandgrenplayed tennis at the University of Tennessee for two seasons. His brother Davey also played at the University of Tennessee.
His idols are Andre Agassi and Gustavo Kuerten. His favorite surface is the hardcourt.
Sandgren has had difficulty attracting sponsors despite his good record on the court, and his rankings. One reason often cited for this lack of big-name sponsors is his extreme right-wing political views. His on-court success has brought scrutiny into his past comments on social media.
