Tennys Sandgren sends funny tweet after blowing match to Roger Federer
Tennys Sandgren lost to Roger Federer in five sets 6-3, 2-6, 2-6, 7-6 (10-8), 6-3 at the Australian Open on Tuesday and sent a highly appropriate tweet.
Sandgren dropped the first set but came back to take the next two. He had several match points in the fourth set but was unable to close it out. In fact, Sandgren blew seven match points before losing the tiebreak and dropping the final set 6-3.
Sandgren tried his best to shake things off on Twitter afterwards, sending a funny tweet about how many shots (presumably of alcohol) he would need to take to wash away the taste of defeat.
What’s the rule here folks- a double shot for each match point you didn’t convert?

If you’re Sandgren, the best thing to do is what Kobe Bryant would do, and that is flush the performance into the toilet and forget about it. Sandgren needs to enter future matches thinking about winning, not whether he might blow it again.
