Re: Donald Young
If I were Donald's coach preparing him for this match, I would tell him "Son, you're playing someone who just beat Federer on clay, so you might as well try something different since he's the favorite anyway:
1) More 120+ mph serves to the body, or slice to Isner's backhand, and follow them to the net. Russell had problems handling Donald's close serves, but for some reason Donald did it only once or twice a set and didn't follow them to the net.
2) Drill Isner's backhand whenever possible. His forehand is becoming lethal, and the heavy loopy topspin won't bother someone who's seems 8 feet tall.
3) Come to the net more."
Monday morning quarterbacking is always easier said then done, but if he's not the favorite, he might as well revamp his approach to the game and try out all of his weapons. Dumping in 115 mph serves and waiting for Isner to make mistakes won't work.
