Roger Federer v Tennys Sandgren Head to Head

The two players have never met before and this will be their first meeting on the tour.

Federer Aiming For Another Slam Semi

Six time Australian Open winner Roger Federer is in yet another grand slam quarter final.

Coming off a lucky third round escape against his 2018 US Open nemesis, John Millman from Australia, Federer started off slowly in his fourth round encounter against Hungarian Marton Fucsovics, perhaps due to some of the residual fatigue from the Milman encounter.

After losing the first set 4-6, Federer got into his groove at the start of the second and prevailed over the next three sets 6-1,6-2,6-2.

Eyeing a seventh title in Melbourne and a record 21st Grand Slam, Federer is in a section of the draw where a victory in the quarter-final will potentially put him against arch rival and seven time champion Novak Djokovic.

Up against another gritty player in Tennys Sandgren , Federer will be looking to get back further to his fluent self, with accuracy, timing and length back on his stroke making.

Can Sandgren Win Biggest Match of His Life?

American Tennys Sandgren seems to play his best tennis Down Under.

The world number 100 was a quarter-finalist at the 2018 Australian Open defeating Stanislas Wawrinka and Dominic Thiem en route, as well as a winner at the ASB Classic in Auckland last year.

He has had another phenomenal run at the Australian Open defeating Matteo Berrettini and Fabio Fognini among others as he is in the quarter finals again.

In good physical shape in 2020, Sandgren has been serving strong and backed it with strong groundstrokes on both wings and looked like a dangerous proponent for any opposition.

Roger Federer v Tennys Sandgren Predictions & Tips

Given that this is the first meeting between the players, Federer will be a little unsure on what to expect and that could take him a little to get into his rhythm.

On the other hand, Sandgren has been in confident form and can be expected to come to this encounter with nothing to lose.

It will not be a surprise if Sandgren is off the blocks sooner than the Swiss maestro, but once Federer gets into the contest, it is difficult to see Sandgren winning this over five sets.

Another four-set win and another major semi-final for Federer.
