Re: Donald Young

I think he will be Top 100 by year end. Good challenger results, just wish he could do better in the finals :-) Next year should be a great year for him, there will be a lot of smaller ATP US events where I think he will get WCs or qualify for.

Re: Donald Young

That was an impeccable shot.

Donald didn't enter the Champaign Challenger, which is surprising considering that he's playing the rest of the American Challengers (plus he'a from Illinois). I guess he's confident that he will only need three more touraments to get the points he needs.

He has a rematch with Levine today in the QF of the Louisville Challenger. I hope and expect that Levine will give him a match this time around.

Re: Donald Young

Young def. Levine 6-3, 6-3. Another young American, Scott Oudsema, is up next.

Re: Donald Young

It's great to see him doing so consistently well. It wasn't long ago that he was everyone's favorite punch line. Now he's close to overtaking Ginepri in the rankings and may get DA into the AO.

Re: Donald Young

indeed, it's good to see him finally putting up consistent results. Hopefully he will get the direct entry and move on up from there!

Re: Donald Young

He'll move up to #115 with a loss and #112 with a win tomorrow (ceteris paribus). He's just 32 points short of #104 in the rankings, with a chance to earn 18 more tomorrow. He has two more Challengers after this one (assuming he doesm't change his mind and get a WC into Champaign).

Bachinger has beaten Kendrick and Isner, so you never know, but I like Young's chances.

Re: Donald Young

Wow, Young led 6-0, 2-1, but somehow went on to lose the last two sets 7-5, 6-3. Yikes. I don't like the pattern that is developing.

Re: Donald Young

Donald Young could make it to Top 100 early next year

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018
