Re: Donald Young

Donald Young could be in the TOP 100 after this week if he made it to the semis or finals would almost guarantee it.

Re: Donald Young

He's 106 now. That should be good enough to get into the AO with a few withdrawals. I doubt he will play Knoxville next week.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Absolute. You right.

He will play AO.

I think if he not get Roger in 1st or 2rd round, He got a chance to make it to 3rd or better than that.

Not kidding. He will make a big run next year

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

Thiem will be No 1 by May 2018
Nick Kyrgios will be No 2 by Sep 2018
Mikael Ymer will be No 3 by Dec 2018
Alexander Zverev will be No 1 by Dec 2018

Re: Donald Young

Yea, looks like he's one win away from the top 100 now :-) Hope he plays one more event this fall.

Re: Donald Young

Yep, he made the final where he lost to Levine in 2 TBs, but he is 98 in the new rankings!

John Wertheim's wrap-up of the David Cup included this

• Donald Young, in town as a practice partner, continued to draw rave reviews from other players. "Top 50 by summer" is the word. Who wouldn't want to be his management agent these days?
Nice to hear. I hope this happens and of course DY gets over his finals losing thing.

I like a lot of players.

Re: Donald Young

I've only seen the Don a couple of times but I like his style and I think he's the sort of variety that USA needs at this point. It reminds me a bit of Nando Verdasco's playing style.

I know it's very premature at this point because he's spent most of his career (like all young Americans) on the hard courts. But looking at his game I still think the Don represents USA's best hope for a slow court player. Spadea and Russell are too old and simply not good enough. Clearly Querrey and Isner are two more hard hitting fast court players just like Roddick, Blake, Fish and Ginepri.

There are two things I can't wait to see this year:

1. How well he performs on the European clay courts. Hopefully he can boost his ranking to the 60-70 mark before April so he can qualify for some of those events.

2. If he can get into the Davis Cup team before the end of the season. I know it's premature to think about it at this point but I would love to see him already get involved in that kind of atmosphere.

Re: Donald Young

You mean as an active playing player on the DC team? I don't think I see that happening this year, but they did have him in Portland and at least one other tie before that, so they are clearly including him in the DC atmosphere. I think it'll just be interesting to see if he can translate the success he had at the challenger level at the end of this season onto the ATP level and put together some good wins in a row. We'll see

Re: Donald Young

Is he playing in any qualifying rounds for the warm up events? Or not playing until the AO?

Re: Donald Young

He could've gotten into Chennai directly, but I guess he decided not to.... hopefully he'll play something though

Re: Donald Young

Yeah, I too was wondering why he wasn't playing any of the tour tournaments before AO. Seems strange, but maybe he has an injury or is tired? Seems like he played a LOT of tennis this fall so perhaps he doesn't think he needs the practice?

Speculations and more speculations....

Anyhoo, can't wait to see the Don, even if it is glimpse.
