USO R1: [9] Blake outlasts Young 6-1, 3-6, 6-1, 4-6, 6-4

The match was really pathetic until the 4th set. Young's game rose dramatically and he started hitting winners everywhere. It was an incredible sight. Knifing the volleys, using that leftie forehand....it was just amazing.

But Blake applied the pressure in the 5th set and a break allowed Blake to run away with the 9th game (4-4, Young serving). Good job.

US Open Rd. 1: Blake d.Young 6-1, 3-6, 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 in a thriller.

WOW amazing stuff from both but especially Donald in those last two sets
James was up a break at 2-0 in the 4th and it looked like Donald was out of it.
Kudos to James though...hopefully Don can keep ut this brilliant play the rest of the year because that was really encouraging.
Nice opening night session from the Open

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

AGHHHH I so wanted Donald to pull that match out. Great match nonetheless.

What a mugs match. Blake's tennis acumen continues to astound me.

He has now beaten a cramping Santoro, a Grosjean that could no longer run, one of the all time chokers Mathieu, and Young in 5 sets. Four unbelievable victories.

Can't wait for the tennis genius to go out.

If nothing else, Young proved he has at least talent in terms of his abilities to hit the ball. Whether he'll ever put his head together to do it consistently, we'll never know. But he showed a lot today, good for him.

Also for all the talk of Young having a bad attitude and stuff, he was good about signing for the fans right after he lost, while james was on the court interviewing on tv. So good on him for that

I sure hope that's the only 5 setter he has until Nadal

6 wins away from a first pitch at Shea Stadium for the Mets fan

Agreed. I was pleasantly surprised.

Blake played well in 1st and 3rd set. The rest of the match from him.. uhuhuh...

Have to give some credit to Donald though. I had never seen him playing so well as he did in 4th and 5th sets.

Overall a good match. And good that James somehow managed to get through this one

Another brainless match by Blake - this time lucky only because Young was on the other side of the net... Blake is 3-1 in five-setters this year.

Donald Young is ready for prime time. Golden Slam for sure next year for Young. New GOAT, 20 slams+ for sure.
