Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry may have found a new beau in Tennys Sandgren, a surprise 2018 Australian Open quarterfinalist.
Sandgren, at 26, presently finds himself ranked No. 56 on the ATP World Tour. McHenry, 32, now works as a conservative news commentator. The latter has posted about the seemingly budding romance, with affectionately chirpy posts saying "Puts up with me in between tournaments. I vote GOP Conventions & wine tours." and "Cheering for you is easy @tsandgren7 ...even if the French Open refuses to sell beer. #champagnethough."
Sandgren himself has yet to post to social media about the potential relationship.
In January, the American stormed to the Australian Open round of eight this year, shocking observers of the sport, as he had scarcely been past the first round at a major event since turning pro in 2011. Since that Melbourne showing, in which he defeated Stan Wawrinka and Dominic Thiem, he has lost his opening match at eight of 12 events entered, including Roland Garros and elsewhere. Those hits have included first-round losses to the likes of Philipp Kohlschreiber, Denis Shapovalov and Frances Tiafoe and a pair of tight, later-stage defeats to Fabio Fognini. Even so, Sandgren did reach the Houston final in April.
The enigmatic American has not played a tournament since his French Open ouster and has yet to compete on grass ahead of Wimbledon.
