I know that this loss isn't a big deal but it seems that Harrison is on the good way to become new Young

Could have been an easier 2nd set but i guess Sod just focused on serving it out!!

Livescore suggested Robin did what was needed and not an inch more in the second set. Dropped a few point early in pretty much every service game but never faced a BP while he took the only one he got himself. One hour match is the perfect start.

??? How does a loss to a top five player after having qualified at 18 give any indication of being the next Young?

I don't know why people are so obsessed with Donald Young on here. In my opinion Harrison is light years ahead of Young in terms of maturity and overall potential, and is still three years younger than him as well.

Re: Brisbane R1: Soderling def. Harrison 6-2 6-4

With Brisbane being the only tournament of the week to not have live coverage I obviously can't speak to the witnessed quality of play, but Harrison's serving stats are definitely disconcerting. His serve is too big to have such a low first serve winning percentage.

Hopefully Ryan will only learn from this match, and Robin will get an adequate tune up going into the AO...

Exactly. The "next Donald Young" joke is way past its sell by date. Ryan is doing well and I know he is a lot more focused on his goals to improve as a tennis player than Donald & his parents ever were.

We are going to be seeing a lot more of Ryan H that's for sure. Already he;s volleying skills are a lot better than a ton of experienced players out there. Bring it on. Today Soder was just too good. Too much power.
