Young was horrible in the first set. Gilles was horrible for the first 8 games of the second set and then woke up just in time to win the last four games of the match. There's not too much to take from this match.

At least Donald Young is competitive vs. a top 15 player. Mentally still has a ways to go. You could see in his eyes that 5-4 game that he would lose.

Omg that was one of the lowest quality matches on the ATP this year. Simon was pretty awful, yet Young was way worse. Young must have missed about 20 relatively easy shots. Horrid match from both.

Donald should hang up his racquet... I mean seriously, six 1st round exits in a row?
