IW qualifying rd 2: Marinko Matosevic def Donald Young 6-4 4-6 7-6 (8)

Matosevic saved 5 match points, I have never actually seen Donald play but he surely is a little too old to be losing to these players in qualifying rounds and still be predicted to be a future name in tennis. Donald had 3 straight match points at 0-40 5-6 but blew it. Donald also was leading with 2 minibreaks 5-2 in the tiebreak. At 8-8 in the tiebreak Donald doublefaulted, makes you wonder about the mental state of the kid...

Checked some stats about Marinko Matosevic and he is 24 years old ranked 240 and has never won an atp match in his life.

Did anyone watch this match?

Actually he saved 5 match points : 4 at 5-6 (0-40 then 40-A) and one in the tie break at 6-7 on his serve.

MM wins a lot of these close matches, he is extremely clutch.

But I agree, Young should not be losing these types of matches in his own country.

Matosevic behaved like a proper asshole. Some nice remarks about Youngs skin colour after the match too although I dont know the exact wording. So this is Klein version 2.0, just awaiting a suspension.

Really?

That's really disappointing if it's true, were you at the match? He does have a hot temper but he seemed to have put it behind him during the last year or so.

No, I am not in Indian Wells. A friend of mine watched the match and was so disgusted by Matosevics behaviour he called me right aftet the match.
