What happened to Devin Britton?

Devin was in better shape than Tomic. Then, He won the NCAA men's singles title.After that, He went pro. Now, I have not heard about wildcard for him. He doesn't use his twitter as much. What happened??

I have no idea as well, was surprisingly good when I saw him vs Federer at the USO last year.

Re: What happened to Devin Britton?

Well, first of all, despite beating Tomic at the USO he has never been anywhere near the prospect.
And he has been playing like crap, can't even pick up any wins in futures currently. With that said I think he will get on the right track soon enough.

Re: What happened to Devin Britton?

hopefully , he can get over some "issues" and realize he needs to crack into the top 500. He should have stayed in college.

Probably, but that's in the past now

He could never go back. Some players need to "un- pro" themselves.

He has just accumulated defeats in the futures circuit

Tomic won two challengers and two slam first rounds

In his US generation, Domijan, Buchanan, even Rhyne Williams have been ranked in the top-800. Britton has never entered the top-1000, which is really not much at his age (he's more than one year older than Tomic)

useless old guy

Re: What happened to Devin Britton?

Weird, because against Roger, it totally looked like he had a 'grown up' game.
