Good week. He still has a long way to go on that 2nd serve and the backhand is just too weak. He can hit it when forced to.
He prob will cuz of Washington. I think he should work on his forehand approach cus he was dumping some easy ones into the net.

Re: Donald Young

DY has a 50% chance of beating Berrer. If he does beat Berrer, he has a 25% chance of beating Dmitrov.

Re: Donald Young

I like his chances against Dimitrov if he does beat Berrer because Dimitrov has never beaten Young before so there is a mental block.

As far as I know, they've only played once so I wouldnt read too much into their H2H. But, Dimitrov has a one hander, and if Baghdatis had trouble with DYs forehand to his backhand, Id expect the same problems with Dimitrov.

Re: Donald Young

I'd say he has more of a 40% chance. Its a match he certainly will have a chance, unless Grigor is firing on all cylinders. He defended his points from last year but it would be nice if he can build on it.

OK, I'll go with 40%. I'm feeling more optimistic too.

Re: Donald Young

He lost 4-6, 6-2, 6-7(2). Played an awful breaker. Stats were similar for him in 1st and 3rd sets.

Re: Donald Young

He got slotted against a Qualifier in Round 1 of the US Open. Big chance for 45 points. Only a few qualifiers I can see beating him. If he can get to the next round it would most likely end for him. He'd play Wawrinka most likely.

Re: Donald Young

Well not a bad draw to randomly go anywhere. Definitely needs to pick up those 1st round points. Wawrinka has not been playing great so if he was going to draw a top seed that wasn't a horrible one imo.

Re: Donald Young

Wawrinka lost to Golubev last week who is 5-23 for the year. So... I could see some potential for some breakout rounds for Don if he can keep his head together.

Re: Donald Young

Tough loss to Dimitrov this week. DY had his chances; at least he battled.

Good break to draw a qualifier in R1 of USO. We'll have to see who it turns out to be. I'm really hoping for a Young/Matosevic showdown in R3. I know, I know, there's a 0.00001% chance of that happening.

Don is Matosevic's b!tch so I wouldn't want to see that clash. Ha Ha.
