Re: Devin Britton

Britton's been losing all over the place.

If the USTA Futures are on clay, then what other choice do they have?? Change the surface??? Travel out of the country to play a Futures on hard?? WC him into a Challenger on hard when he's been struggling in Futures qualies???

He just needs to win more.

Re: Devin Britton

Give little more time for him

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Re: Devin Britton

The hits keep on coming. He's out in the second round of Futures qualifying in Harlingen. Yikes. These are inexplicably bad results.

To another unranked player no less. Chris Kwon used to be a pretty good jr back in the day, but this is still a pretty bad loss, something is very wrong. Spencer Newman is coming thru qualies and Britton cant?? Cant blame this on the clay.

Edit: Just checked Kwon's record and he's been ranked in the 400s back in '05 and has a Futures title to his name. Still a bad loss, however.

Re: Devin Britton

Devins success at the NCAA's were a big surprise, he was good all season, but never bettern then 25 or 30 in the rankings and much more not in his playing/results. Then he wins such a tournament and decides to go PRO, but he is not that PRO he likes to be. Another year in Ole Miss would have helped a lot, with a lot of quality matches. He would have had 20 or more quality opponents there.

Allways Good luck to:

Joachim Johansson * Andreas Vinciguerra* Jonas Björkman* ToJo* Robin Söderling* Oliver Rochus* Christope Rochus* Jarkko Nieminen* Fernando Gonzalez* Feliciano Lopez*Igor Andreev*Catalin Gard*Kristof Vliegen*Kristian Pless*Kenneth Carlsen*Juan Ignacio Chela*Steve Darcis*Kevin Anderson*Henri Kontinen*Henri Laaksonen*Daniel Berta*Rik de Voest*Niels Desein*Fernando Verdasco*Arthur de Greef*'David Goffin*Yannik Reuter*Erling Tveit*Devin Britton*Micke Kontinen*Christian Lindell*Erling Tveit*Robbye Poole*Henri Laaksonen*

Well, he was coming off getting to the US Open jrs Finals, where he beat the #1 seed along the way, IIRC, wasnt it Tomic that he beat???

Then he gets to the Wimby jrs semis, plus the Roehampton semis also, I think. Maybe he felt going back to college would have been a step back.

He's won matches at the Futures level before turning pro, I'm sure he felt he would continue to win, and more frequently. Maybe he's having trouble with the pressure. He played Haas and Federer tough, plus close losses pretty much whenever he's competed in a tour event, MD or qualies, that has to be encouraging.

He did beat Tomic, though Tomic was actually the second seed behind Yang. He also beat Krajinovic before losing to Grigor Dimitrov in the final.

As for Roehampton, he won that without dropping a set I believe.

Britton lost 1st rd, AGAIN!!! The poor guy must have zero confidence right now. Cant see him getting a WC into the US Open with his results. I can see Kudla getting one however.

Can Britton go back to college? Don't see him making top 100 in the nearest 3 years.

Mardy Fish!

Brian Baker - Steve Johnson - Lleyton Hewitt - Carlos Berlocq - Tommy Haas - Ivo Karlovic - Richard Gasquet - Kevin Anderson - David Ferrer - Michael Russell - Fabio Fognini - Dustin Brown - Somdev Devvarman

Re: Devin Britton

He can't go back to college. He's turned professional already. Unless he hasn't taken the prize money and somehow kept his amateur status he's pro.
