Sand­gren leaves Nor­rie in the dust

The Herald (South Africa) - - Sport -

Amer­i­can Ten­nys Sand­gren claimed his first ATP tour ti­tle on Satur­day with a com­pre­hen­sive straight-sets vic­tory over Bri­ton Cameron Nor­rie in the fi­nal of the Auck­land Clas­sic.

The 27-year-old Sand­gren took just 79 min­utes to beat Nor­rie 6-4 6-2 to com­plete a week of ten­nis with­out drop­ping a set.

In a tour­na­ment in which none of the seeded play­ers made it to the fi­nal four, Sand­gren was play­ing only his sec­ond ATP fi­nal – hav­ing lost in Hous­ton last year – while it was the first for wild­card en­trant Nor­rie. -
