He should've realized that at 19. But oh well.

Re: Donald Young

Donald got a WC into Atlanta and plays Russell in R1. The winner plays #2 seed Anderson in the second round.

Russell will make Donald hit a lot of balls, grind and Donald will have to be focused to win this match.

Re: Donald Young

He has a 50% chance of beating Russell. He has a 1% chance of beating Anderson.

Also, did you notice he's playing doubles with Harrison? I did not expect that to happen.

I'd give him more than a 50% chance to beat Russell. They're 2-2 in the h2h but Don beat him last time they played and Russell's last win was a ret., not to mention the approx 10 yr age difference. I'd put DY as the favorite against Russell.

I'd also give DY a shot against Anderson. DY is 3-5 against Anderson, with Anderson winning the last 5, but pretty much all of their matches have been close, 3 sets, or 2 close sets.

At some pt he's gonna have to capitalize on one of these draws he's been getting and get to a semi or final.

End wasnt any better. I'd say he's in a slump, lost 1st rd at Aptos, now here. It shouldnt be a matter of confidence cause he's been getting wins lately.

Re: Donald Young

Obviously, his season is going downhill and has been since the argument with McEnroe and the USTA. His pre and post argument results tell the tale. And he's slumping at virtually the same exact time he did last season, during the USO series, the absolute worst time to do so.

Today he didn't really put a performance on the court, but he also wasn't 100% fit. Hopefully he'll take a few days off, be recharged and will be ready for LA qualies.

Re: Donald Young

I missed the medical timeout, what was he getting treatment on? The good thing is he only has about 50 points to defend for the rest of the year. He just needs to get back to training with Berger in Boca. The USTA situation happened at a bad time for him but he needs to get back on track.

I seem to have overestimated his chances. I'll wait for his next match. If he plays LA qualifying, I may even go see the match.

I actually did go to see the first round of qualifying at UCLA on Saturday, which by the way was DY's 22nd birthday. Happy belated birthday to him.

Anyway, I knew that he wasn't entered from checking online the night before. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed watching players like Kosakowski, Kudla, Smyczek, and Giron. Congrats to Kosakowski for making the main draw!

Re: Donald Young

He plays Artem Sitak in Round 1 of Washington. Saw a picture of him using a Prince racquet, here's the link. http://yfrog.com/khvx9hecj

DY drew qualifier Sitak in R1 of Washington. He has a 60% chance of beating him. Good thing he didn't draw Matosevic.

If he gets to R2, he plays Meltzer. He has a 2% chance of beating him. Meltzer seems to play a similar game as Young, just way better.

Re: Donald Young

It's the best possible qualifier he could have gotten, so a win is required. Melzer is beatable, but first things first, he needs to win his R1 match.

Agreed, Melzer does not have alot of confidence right now which is a boost. (Plus Young usually plays well against other ball-bashers)
