Donald Young is hardly the yardstick to measure his level. Still it's a win and it's straight sets so that's not too bad.

Early resistance from Young but it seems like he faded pretty fast.

Cilic was playing as well as I've seen in awhile. Young had no chance with the way Cilic played and Marin made that apparent after the 1st set and then Young kinda faded at the end.

Cilic looked pretty good, granted it was the same old Don. The next round should be a bit more of a test, but this is a great start

I expected this. Cilic is a terrible matchup for Young. Young cannot handle consistent pace.

Not a bad play from Marin, especially at the net, he was showing improvements.

Yeah, some life back in Marin's game. He looked focused too for a change. Giraldo will tell us more where's he's at ATM. Good job

First class description

I think today he was faster than he's ever been.

He was also hitting the ball with great power.

Wonder how a Cilic/Isner match would be??

He should be able to reach to say the least as long as he doesn't choke it away.

Donald is still too young to face up to the big boys. He does have a cute game though
