Rajeev Ram def. Donald Young 6-0 3-6 6-4

Second round Lubbock challenger...

Makes you wonder who Young actually did beat recently (Delic who lost to Sweeting last week and Guccione who anyone can beat at the moment). He did win a challenger early summer. But I think it's safe to say Young is still a good challenger level player, not (yet) ATP quality.

The players at this level are regularly beating each other one week and losing to each other the next week. This match is no big deal.

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.

Agreed. These players are so up-and-down in their match play against each other that these kinds of results are meaningless. Although I will say I'm really happy for Rajeev Ram.

Wolmarans outlasts Young at this tournament- I think we all know who's going to have the better career

Filippo VOLANDRI, Pablo ANDUJAR, Yuki BHAMBRI, Fabio FOGNINI, Thomaz BELLUCCI,
Santiago GIRALDO, Donald YOUNG, Gael MONFILS, Juan Martin DEL POTRO, Alexandr DOLGOPOLOV


Simon|Mathieu|Falla|Bolelli|Kyrgios|Verdasco
Monaco|Garcia-Lopez|Dancevic|Granollers|Cilic|Schwank

Obviously we now have conclusive evidence that Young sucks and will never make the top-100.

Re: Rajeev Ram def. Donald Young 6-0 3-6 6-4

I dont see this as too bad a result. A few years ago, Young would have simply given up after being handed a bagel. To have actually stepped up his game and lose by a pretty slim margin afterwards is a testament to his growing mental game. He still needs time to grow, but at least he's' going in the right direction.

wat.

Hell yeah! Sounds a lot like TMF between winning Jr Wimby 1998 and 2002/3
