Donald Young

I help run the Dallas Challenger and I witnessed something tonight that really pissed me and a lot of people off. Donald Young had just finished his match with Michael Russell when the Tournament Director asked everyone to please stand up so the National Anthem could be sung before our night session began. The players had not left the court yet so Russell got up while Young stayed seated during the whole anthem. Now with everyone that has gone on in the world, and especially with this tourney being in the States, this was such a classless and idiotic move. A lot of fans witnessed Young not standing during the anthem and let him have it after it was over. Here is the last thing that got under my skin. We(Challenger of Dallas) gave Donald Young one of our two wildcards for this event. His agent had been calling us for a week straight asking for a wc. Since he arrived yesterday, he has not once thanked the Tournament Director, myself or anyone else associated with the tourney. I really support the USTA and US players, but I could care less what happens to Young the rest of his career. He lost a lot of fans tonight. The child needs to grow up.

Re: Donald Young

I'm sorry Donald spoiled the proceedings of your event.
But I'm hardly surprised given all the bloated hype surrounding him and the arrogant ego with zilch results to match.
This incident again confirms all these. I hope people will stop putting him on a pedestal when he's so unworthy, both tennis and character wise.

Re: Donald Young

He is sort of a douche, despite being talented I can't stand seeing his expression on court. Still, it's kind of messed up to bash and hate on a kid, lord knows he probably has a lot of pressure and expectation that he's trying to live up to.

Re: Donald Young

Why the heck do you need to play the national anthem?

Re: Donald Young

Give Donald a break. He is 19 not a 73 year old republican


So what if he did not stand up to some BS anthem. This is an internationally sanctioned tennis event by the ATP NOT a pro american nut hugging event.

Re: Donald Young

I don't quite get why the anthem was played, but why Young remained seated, I don't know. Probably really, really gutted about the easy loss to Russell. He's known for having a piss-poor attitude though and this is only underlining that.

Re: Donald Young

A little bit of respect would be needed,

Martijn, why they played the anthem, oh come on, this is Dallas If an anthem was played in our challenger in Wrocław of course everyone would stand up incl. all of our players, but everyone would have a laugh why the heck such a sacred tune in such a shit event lol.. Somehow, I've got a feeling though, if anthems were played before tennis matches, many players would fight much much more, and maybe some wouldn't have guts for their nasty tanks or pathetic attitude.

Personally Young is soooo not my cup of tea, but there's something about how eager the TS is tell this story and hate on Young that actually makes me not so sympathetic to him.

No doubt Young is a tool, but there's something about someone so eager to snitch and make someone look bad that's not a good look either.
