At the moment he can't translate his talent into points and even when he got his first serve in play he was still only managing to win around 55% of the points. Will be interesting to see him once he has a few wins under his belt. Right now he hasn't got enough to compete with top 100 players as his results testify.
I've just checked his playing activity in his profile. His results on challengers and futures aren't impressive either. One future semifinal is his best career achievement so far (he then lost 6-1 6-2 to Ivan Miranda).
The highest ranked player Young has managed to beat was Jamie Delgado, and that was 2 years ago in a hard court future event.
Djokovic at the age of 17 managed to double bagel Ginepri at Roland Garros. Granted, clay is not exactly Ginepri's specialty, but it just shows that Young is clearly not at the level that his opponent was on 2 years ago.
