Re: Devin Britton

NBC is streaming the entire Britton-Domijan match. Click the link, click "full match replay" at the bottom, select July 2, then click the thumbnail of the match.

I like what I see from Britton. Domijan has potential as well, but he is less of a sure thing. He does have better groundstrokes though, and his serve is similarly big. Britton has the volleying, better movement, and perhaps a slightly more explosive serve.

It's hard to believe that Britton didn't win Wimbledon. He must have been worn down from all the matches he's played.

Thanks for pointing that website out, I never would have seen it otherwise. Watched a little bit of Domijan-Britton last night. Domijan has good potential and taller guys are always late bloomers. About Britton, yeah I thought he would win the whole tournament. Really though like you said, he's just played so much tennis the last couple months and has to be worn out. Also, I watched the first set of the final where Cox won and was much more impressed, obviously. He might have not had much left in his legs during sets 2 and 3.

Ha! Don't I look like an idiot. I checked yesterday and didn't see it. Maybe I missed it, or maybe they added it today.

Re: Devin Britton

Jon Wertheim likes Britton and Domijan:

"Britton's got talent. We came away impressed with Devin Britton, the NCAA champ, and Alex Domijan (Baby Ivo) who both possess top-50 potential. Playing serve-and-volley tennis, Britton lost to yet another American, Jordan Cox, in the semis, 16-14 in the third."

Re: Devin Britton

Ram won 6-3, 7-5. Not too bad considering Ram's form. Britton will play qualifying in L.A. next week.

Re: Devin Britton

Devin played Alex Bogomolov, who got to the QFs in Indy, in the first round of LA qualifying.
It was both an impressive and disappointing effort. Devin won the second set and was twice up a break in the third, yet still lost 6-4 in the third. Just looking at the second serve points it's obvious Bogomolov was controlling the important second serve rallies.

Re: Devin Britton

Britton has got to get his first serve percentage up. 52% and numerous double faults isn't going to get it done.

Re: Devin Britton

Devin's twitter says he is "headed for Cincinnati". I'm assuming a qualy WC.
