Re: Donald Young

Lucas Lacko, lucky loser. I think (hope) he's not that lucky, because DY has a 65% chance of beating LL.

Re: Donald Young

Time to assess DY's prospects against Wawrinka. He has a 33% chance of beating the veteran Swiss.

Re: Donald Young

Well he did it! Was worried when I checked out the match in the 2nd set and he looked like he was a little bit tired and then started gabbing to his box about the fh, bh, serve, strings. He seems to recover from these lapses quicker, though. Pure heart coming back in the 5th set.

Re: Donald Young

Good job by Donald to beat Chela. No matter what happens in the next round it has been a successful tournament for him.

More than successful!! Career best showing at his home slam, cracking the top 60 at least in the process, maybe more. Finally fulfilling some of the promise he's shown.

Bye bye Challengers!!

For the next yr at least.

Re: Donald Young

next one is huge for Donald. If he wants to prove some at age 22 that's best chance to beat Andy Murray at home.

must make Crowd work for it.

First second week for Donald in seven years, please focus on it. Now confidence is in highest level... DOn't let momentum gone. Right here right now make it to QF. Otherwise you maynot get this kind of chance again.

win or go home...

so far, we haven't seem him beat a guy like Andy, Rafa, Roger or Nole... Which means he still not enough.

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

Re: Donald Young

Donald seems realistic about this match. In any case I am hoping he produces a surprise but would be happy if he doesn't get blown off the court.

Re: Donald Young

Well at least he lost against #4 in the world. It would be more disappointing if he blew a winnable match, odds were very low of pulling up that upset even if he played well. Up to #57 in the world. Looking forward to how he does in Asia/Europe this fall.

Re: Donald Young

Good tournament at US Open this year. Took advantage of winnable matches. Hopefully he can build on his good summer this fall. Plays andreev in Bangkok. Not a must win but would help build his confidence, not to mention semis is very possible.
