Re: Donald Young

[11]Isner v Falla
Lorenzi v Mahut
Andreev v Golding
Istomin v [23]Seppi
[26]Youzhny v Young
Cervantes v Cipolla
Sweeting v Starace
Nalbandian v [8]Tipsarevic

I'm afraid his losing streak will continue.

"Lost in 4, expected."

Actually, better than expected. Expected would be losing in 3. It is possible he might never win another ATP match.

Re: Donald Young

Nah, I think he will eventually snap the losing streak (just don't know when).

Re: Donald Young

Donald will play Russell in the first round of Newport, full draw: http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2012/315/mds.pdf

Not sure what to expect.

I'm 90% certain Russell will administer loss #13 to DY.

Re: Donald Young

I think you are right. Russell plays him very smart. Just grinds him down until DY blows a gasket.

Re: Donald Young

#13 is in the books. Mike Russell outcompeted, outfought, and outlasted DY, who as usual quit when the going got tough.

I foresee #14-Atlanta, #15-Olympics, then he'll have to qualify for Toronto and Cincy (and I assume he won't be able), #16-Winston-Salem, #17-US Open. Then his rankings drop and it's back to Challengers. Who knows when or if he will play another ATP match. So Spadea's record 21 straight may be safe for a good while.

Have you noticed that DY's function in the ATP tour this year (besides serving as cautionary tale/soap opera) has been to provide ranking boosts to his opponents? When he played Falla in the beginning of the year, Falla was #80; now he is 58. Lacko - was 119/now 58, Goffin - 148/59, Paire - 102/47, Matthieu 352/169, etc., etc. He does serve a useful function!

Re: Donald Young

Wonder how far he will drop after the US Open. He should have definitely played 2-3 challengers during this drought to build a bit of confidence. Sad to see things fall apart like this. Couple of these matches he blew.

DY has 785 points at the moment, making him the #57 player in the world. He loses 625 points during the remainder of 2012, the bulk of which came from Washington DC, the US Open, and Bangkok. If he doesn't add a single point, he will end 2012 with 160 points, equivalent to around #280 in the world.

But maybe he will win some matches. Maybe not an ATP-level match, but he will soon be relegated to Challengers, where I assume he can be more successful. Assume he adds 100 points, winning a few rounds here and there, maybe getting to QF's or SF's. He will end 2012 with 260 points, equivalent to around #188 in the world.

That's the range I put him at by the end of the year - from #188 to #280.

Re: Donald Young

Anybody know anything about his practice routine??

Earlier this yr I heard Robbie Koenig mention that he was traveling with a 16 yr old practice partner. I also remember hearing that PMac mentioned in his book that DY was having trouble finding people to practice with on the Challenger tour and they, the Youngs, thought that it was b/c he was black.

In the picture thread there's a photo of a young looking black guy with DY, looks like they are going/coming from practice at Newport. Looks like the same guy I saw on TV in Monte Carlo.

Anybody know whats up??
