Comments from tennis players on Tennys Sandgren's post on Instagram.2018 US Open - Day 4Novak Djokovic and Tennys Sandgren have come face-to-face four times to date, with the former winning every match.

The duo first played against each other at the Wimbledon Championships in 2018. The Serb won the Round of 128 match quite comfortably, with the scoreline reading 6-3, 6-1, 6-2.

Sandgren met the World No. 1 again a few months later at the 2018 US Open, for a Round of 64 clash. Though he lost the match, Sandgren was able to snatch one set from Djokovic as he went down 6-1, 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-2.

Their third meeting came two years later, at the Cincinnati Masters in 2020. The American met a similar fate in the pre-quarterfinals as his opponent raced to a 6-2, 6-4 victory without breaking a sweat.

The 24-time Grand Slam champion collected his fourth victory over Sandgren at the French Open in 2021. He defeated the American in straight sets in the opener.

Interstingly, Djokovic went on to win all four of the aforementioned tournaments. He downed South Africa’s Kevin Anderson to clinch the Championships at SW19 and beat Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro in the decider at Flushing Meadows.

The Serb bettered Canada’s Milos Raonic in the final at Cincinnati and defeated Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas at Roland Garros in 2021 in the summit clash.
