I don't want to see him fail... As i said I'm just pissed off when I have to read all of those comments about Young how good he is etc etc when he didn't show a lot comparing to some other players who have worked maybe harder and showed more but still don't have treatment like they should have...
Of course it happens, coming from the right country helps as well, perfect example is like Murray, Monfils, Roddick, they hardly played challenger events when they started because they didn't need to, because they were able to take advantage of being from the right place. Of course, this doesn't mean that they weren't going to make it as players, there are different ways of doing it. I mean Federer played Futures, Djokovic qualified for all the Slams in one year, these guys on the list are progressing their own way.
IMG is no different from any multinational corporation and yes they are hugely involved with the ATP, considering Mark Miles the first leader was an IMG guy. They are going to push their agenda through and get their clients the deals. Yes, IMG are a bunch of pricks, this is obvious.
If the player is good enough and works to their maximum potential, then they will make it to through, no matter at what speed their biggest successes are achieved.
