Sandgren leaves Norrie in the dust
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. -
