Re: Donald Young

The draw is sitting on a plate for Don to eat. A SF is very, very open for him to take. I'll be disappointed if he doesn't at least make the QF. A great chance once again to make a mark in an ATP event. Hopefully he takes advantage this time.

You think he matches up well against Kamke?

Re: Donald Young

Kamke isn't a grass player. Also, this is a quick court. Kamke is a ballbasher, not a great match-up for Don, but on this slick and low bouncing court, Kamke is bound to make tons of errors. I wouldn't be surprised to see Kamke lose his R1 match.

Re: Donald Young

The Don just put a beatdown on Capdeville, 2 & 1. Lets see who he plays next. A couple more wins and he can skip Aptos and still get MD at the Open.

Re: Donald Young

Ha. He continues to blow some of these easier draws. But grass just didn't seem to be his thing. Hopefully the hardcourt summer goes well. Make a few quarters at least.

Re: Donald Young

Well he's in Aptos this coming week. Surprised his ranking is up to 104 at the end of this week. Defending points, but make the finals and or win probably back in the top 100.

I think that live rankings site is wrong. From my calculations he should have 508 pts, not 500. That should move him up a couple of spots.

Re: Donald Young

Don was 5-3 in the first set and had set point on serve in the tiebreak. Another unfortunate loss and you can see his mental demons are starting to come back with these losses from winning positions. Every single time he's gotten close to the top 100 or barely inside it, these last few years, he's had bad results almost immediately.

These recent results have also come almost immediately after his fight with the USTA, then he hurt his wrist and missed about a month. It's unfortunate, not able to build on the great start he had this year.

Re: Donald Young

The positive for Donald is after next week in Atlanta, he defends extremely little for the rest of the season. This is as good of an opportunity as he's ever had to finish in the top 100. The negative is that he'll probably have to qualify for the USO, but we know he's good in slam qualies.

Hopefully he bounces back next week in his home event.

Re: Donald Young

He needs a new coach. Hope he realizes that now.
