As a sophomore, Sandgren reached the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championships. Moreover, he was also a member of the USTA Summer Collegiate Team after his freshman and sophomore seasons.

Tennys, after turning pro in 2011, played mostly at the ITF Futures level the first year.
Later, in 2017 Sandgren qualified for his first tournament on the ATP World Tour.

His success there earned him a wildcard berth into the main draw of the French Open. Moreover, in January 2019, the tennis pro won his maiden ATP Tour title at the Auckland Open.

However, he missed the 2022 Australia Open due to a vaccine mandate out of the top 400, which buzzed a huge highlight during that time.

Tennys Sandgren has locked his Instagram handle out of the public reach. But his ex-girlfriend is active on her Instagram.

Britt’s Instagram used to have a lot of Tenny’s pictures. In recent times, there has been no sighting of Tennys on her social media handles.

Sandgren’s current romantic life is still hidden from public view on the internet.

Britt McHenry Through Controversies

In 2019, McHenry accused FOX co-host and wrestler Tyrus of sexual harassment after he allegedly sent her a series of lewd text messages.

Fox News reported that the issue was looked into and remedied. But, Fox News and Murdoch were sued for sexual harassment by McHenry on December 10.

Britt voluntarily dropped the complaint in July 2021 and departed Fox, ostensibly as part of a court deal.

Before that, a video of McHenry angrily abusing and making fun of a tow company clerk on April 6, 2015, went viral on the internet. In response to the incident, ESPN suspended McHenry from the network for one week.
