Steve Johnson in the first round of the tournament in New York on February 11 will play with Tennys Sandgren. The American derby at the tournament in New York is too predictable. But predictability is easily washed away by a great match. It is a good fight that we expect from the confrontation between Sandgren and Johnson. This year, Tennys has already made a loud announcement about itself, as it was paired with Federer at AO. Roger solidly raised recognition for the young guy. Young, of course, in terms of professionalism.
Today, two tennis players with a powerful serve will intersect on the court. The game is likely to be protracted as the players are equal. I think that Tennys Sandgren has more chances to win, especially if he continues to demonstrate the same game as at Australian Open. How will the meeting of two Americans end? – read in our prediction.

Johnson has already won the title this season. In January, Steve won a victory at a tournament in Bendigo. In the final, Johnson defeated the Italian tennis player Stefano Travaglia (7-6, 7-6).
On Australian Open, the US representative was unable to overcome the starting circle, in which he won the lot of Roger Federer (3-6, 2-6, 2-6).
It is unlikely that Johnson relishes his return to tournaments indoor. He lost his last 8 matches on indoor courts, and won just 38% of the games that were played indoors throughout his career. But the American’s form is not bad this year, and he is quite capable of competing with players at the level not higher than the top 50, even in the hated indoor.
For Sandgren, by far the most successful tournament of the season is Australian Open. In Melbourne, Tennys managed to get to the quarter finals of the competition, where he lost to Roger Federer.
Although the match against the Swiss was developing for Sandgren in the best way – the American had seven matchballs during the match, but failed to use them. As a result, Tennys lost the meeting in five sets (3-6, 6-2, 6-2, 6-7, 3-6).
Tennys Sandgren, who also has negative stats indoors. However, we must pay tribute – Tennys arrives in New York in a much better shape than his compatriot. While Steve won the Challenger level title, Sandgren reached the quarterfinals of the AO, although this tournament ended up heartbreaking for him, as Tennys missed the 7 point match, losing to Roger Federer.
