WWW Indian Wells R1: Young vs Darcis

Last season, Donald Young defeated Andy Murray in the second round of this tournament after qualifying and beating Starace in R1. This season hasn't gone too hot for Donald thus far, and now the pressure is on for him to defend his R3 points and back up what he did last season here.

Two favorites of mine; I don't think Steve is a great outdoor HC player. But I also think he's a bad match-up for Don. Not sure how this will go. What do you all think? Vote up!

Hopefully Steve, I don´t like that phrase, but he should take the trash out.

Young may be a big mug, but Darcis is even worse, so I pick the Young in 3.

Re: WWW Indian Wells R1: Young vs Darcis

Darcis will prove tougher opposition than Murray did last year.

I'm going for the upset. I'll let the reader imagine what that might be.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Of course.........Darcis in straight sets. Because, come on, he's playing THE DON. Of course Steve is the underdog. It's not like Steve has ever beaten 5% Murray before

Re: WWW Indian Wells R1: Young vs Darcis

The winner of this match plays Dolgo in R2 who has one win since the Australian Open and generally struggled since Brisbane, so this is a potentially good opportunity for both. Donald needs to win matches like this if he wants to continue to progress in his career.

Re: WWW Indian Wells R1: Young vs Darcis

Donald Young is the man to back against with bookmakers thats for sure. Sweeting was evens against him recently and im sure Darcis may be slight outsider also despite his game effort in Delray. Think its a good first round for both but see Steve coming through in 2 competitive sets.
