In non-AO news... Donald Young Wins! Or Not!

I know everyone was probably either 1) qualifying for AO 2) entered in the main draw or 3) out with injuries but hey, everyone had to start somewhere...


Apparently, the AP got too excited and reported an incorrect result.
Lammer beat Young 1-6, 6-3, 6-1 in the US Futures Tournament on Sunday.

The score they reported was (possibly) from Young's QF match against Nikita KRYVONOS (USA) were he won 6-4. He beat Conor NILAND (IRL) 6-1, 6-2 in the Semis.

Congrats to Lammer and Donald!

Question still remains...is he the real deal or just another Scoville Jenkins?

Donald Young won his first pro singles title at the Grand Slam Futures event, beating Michael Lammer of Switzerland 6-4, 6-3 on Sunday.


Young, ranked 491st in the world, earned 12 ATP ranking points and $1,300.


The 17-year-old from Atlanta defended his USTA Boys 18 Junior Championship title last year. In 2005, Young became the first American since Andy Roddick to win the Australian Open boys singles title and be ranked No. 1 in the year-end ITF World Junior rankings.
(From ESPN)

He's still 0-10 in ATP events.

Like I said, Everyone has to start somewhere. Damn the haterade on this board is too funny. Give a player who is has been down on his luck a break. Gesh.

The hating is only towards American players. It's generally because most other Nations are jealous of Americans and that will never change.

That's life...I sure hope Donald Young turns into something good.

He lost the final to Michael Lammer in 3 sets, according to the pdf draw at the ATP website. http://www.atptennis.com/en/common/T...07/614/mds.pdf

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

btw, I got nothing against Donald, and wish him a luck in the future as well as gentleman James, but some other a$$es are big biatches

Let me think of all the irrational, unfair generalizations I can make about Croats. I'll get back to you.

Really? Name five who feel that way, and support your accusation with direct quotes from those five individuals.
