Tennys Sandgren v Steve Johnson Head to Head
This will be the second meeting between both players. Johnson won their only meeting on the clay courts of Houston in 2018 in a deciding third set.
Sandgren Looking To Recover After Melbourne Meltdown
American Tennys Sandgren seems to play his best tennis Down Under and did so again last month. Formerly a quarter-finalist at the 2018 Australian Open and a winner of the 2019 ASB Classic in Auckland, Sandgren started the year ranked number 100.
He had another phenomenal run at the Australian Open defeating Matteo Berrettini and Fabio Fognini among others and setting himself up for a quarter-final showdown with Roger Federer.
After a slow start and losing the first set, Sandgren came back to win the next two sets and with Federer struggling with apparent groin issues, it seemed like the American was ready for a huge upset and perhaps the biggest win of his career.
What followed was a heartbreak for Sandgren, as he was unable to convert seven match points in the fourth set and the Swiss maestro came back to win in a fifth set.
It remains to be seen if the American has recovered from what will take some recovering, and he will look forward to this week to push those memories behind as soon as possible.
Sandgren has moved up to number 53 in the rankings, after his good Australian Open outing.

Johnson Continues Quest To Return To Form Of Old
Holder of four ATP titles, American Steve Johnson was once ranked just outside the top 20 in the world, in 2016. In 2017, Johnson lost his coach and father tragically and has never been the same player again.
After a break Johnson returned to the tour, and although he won the title on the clay at the Houston ATP 250 and has put up spirited performances against recognized players on the hard courts, he has not managed to reach the levels of consistency he was once at.
2019 saw several early round losses and disappointing form and Johnson restored to the ATP Challenger circuit around the time of the Asian swing in October 2019.
Currently ranked 79th in the world, Johnson will be hoping for a turnaround of fortunes in 2020. After a first round loss to Roger Federer in the Australian Open, the American will hope for some better luck and results this week and onwards.
Tennys Sandgren v Steve Johnson Predictions & Tips
