AO R2 WWW: Young vs. Lacko

The last time those 2 met was in NY where Young handled him in the 1st round.

Winner will prob. be a glorified 3 set warmup for Nadal, but that doesn't mean I don't want to see Young take on his highest ranked opponent in his career to date

Re: AO R2 WWW: Young vs. Lacko

I don´t like Young as a player, his game style is very boring for me. He is good on return, not as good on serve. If Lacko keeps it up, be solid on serve and return, Nadal match is in sight.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Re: AO R2 WWW: Young vs. Lacko

Lacko said Young´s game is nearly similar to Nadal´s, but Donald plays it little bit slower.

Actually I am really looking forward to this match ! Both guys has never past AO 2nd round and both will be motivated by possible Nadal matchup (sorry Haas fans).

It could go to another 5 sets, beating Ljubicic Lacko is minifavourite in my eyes.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Lacko takes this IMO, in 4 sets.

If both play their best, Young wins easily. Of course, neither will play close to their best, they never do.

They are both lefties. That's about it.

Young moves to net some and is more of a slick player, plays with small margains of error unlike Nadal. Young also hits the ball flatter.

Re: AO R2 WWW: Young vs. Lacko

One of my favourite players against one of the players I dislike more.

If Lasko loses even a set to this disgrace of tennis player, he can go fighting against di Mauro for the title "Mug of the Year".

And I'm not joking.

It's dislike 'most', not dislike 'more'.
It's not Lasko, it's Lacko.
I hope Da Donald punks your boy with 3 straight Brueggers.
