American Sandgren wins maiden ATP title in Auckland

14 January 2019

Sandgren just spent 79 minutes to wrap up the week in which he did not drop a single set, reports Xinhua news agency.

"I'm a little bit at a loss for words actually", Sandgren said. Sandgren says it means a lot to get the first win.

The young Briton played some impressive tennis to reach his first ATP final but that wasn't enough today, losing more than 40% of the points in his games and having to play against 12 break chances, suffering four breaks to finish runner-up. "[I'm] just grateful that I can be out here, play and compete".

Norrie said on atptour.com: "I think he was solid throughout".

The nerves showed with 29 unforced errors from Norrie and 17 from Sandgren, a quarter-finalist in the Australian Open a year ago.
