Re: Donald Young lost but had the chance to serve for the 2nd set...

Donald is still too young and can be easily overpowered by the more experienced players... His game is very fluid and his movement superb, but his strokes lack sting and penetration for now, something that will naturally get adjusted the older and stronger he gets... Lisnard is not particularly a very powerful player, that's why I think Donald could hang on very close with him...

For all the criticism (rightly) about his wild cards, this was an impressive effort by Donald. Obviously he won't play a MD event until at least the hard court summer -- I hope they don't give him too many. He's obviously not ready yet.

Young should do like Monfils. He played on the futures tour before ugrading to the challenger & main tour. At the futures level, Young has a chance of hetting a few matches under his belt & boosting his confidence. Having said that, though Donald lost nw at Miami, he played a strong match against Lisnard.

His best showing yet, he'll be just fine in the future, can't expect too much too early

He'll be fine in the future if he's well managed and they don't burn him out first. I wish him the best of luck ad hope he continues developing his game in the juniors or at the challenger/future level

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Donald Young lost but had the chance to serve for the 2nd set...

I had been betting against Young in every match (easy money) but I just couldn't bring myself to bet money on Lisnard, because there is no way I could sit there and root for Lisnard to win a match.

Re: Donald Young lost but had the chance to serve for the 2nd set...

nicely done The Donald

and i agree with all the concerns expressed. his father seems a bit intense. not as bad as Yuri (no-one is as bad as Yuri) but pretty intense nonetheless.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Donald if you've got any sense you'd go back to the juniors now and build up some confidence. It's no good continually losing in straight sets to mediocre ATP Tour players. Your time will come, but you're not quite ready yet I'm afraid

And this is all he needs to focus on. He broke when he has his chances. Just needs to work on the service game. Don

From what I've heard, he is lefty, meaning he has no chance to succeed in modern topflight tennis..

No future apart from claycourts.

I saw Nadal receive serve from Roddick at US Open last year. The mechanics of a lefty are simply not designed for that motion against a superpower shots.. Completely innatural. By the time he managed to lift his racket the ball was already slamming into the wall behind him.. If he tries to succees against power hardcourters, he will only get injured again and again.. And there is no guarantee that it is not going to be the same when power players are finally back in business on clay.. Federer, Safin, Ferrero..

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
