Jared Donaldson

Perhaps the creation of this thread is a bit premature. But yesterday Jared prevailed over Farukh Dustov in the first round of the US Open qualies, and today he plays Ilya Marchenko.

I don't think a win against Marchenko is very likely. But, hey, the kid is only 16 and he picked up an ATP win. Nothing to sniff at. Let's keep an eye on this kid.

Re: Jared Donaldson

More info:

Birthdate: 16 (09 Oct 1996)
Plays: Right Handed (Double Handed Backhand)
From Cumberland, Rhode Island

JD is from a well-off family. He has a younger sister, an equestrian, who he doesn't get along with. He trains in Argentina for the last 2 1/2 years. Temporarily quit tennis in February, but returned to the sport after consulting with a sport psychologist

He is a versatile ballstriker with good height (but is on the skinny side). Was said to be 6'1 to 6'2 last summer. Jared needs to work on his serve, conditioning, and mental game. Current ranking is 1055 (made a quarterfinal of the Venezuela futures in his pro debut last year two weeks after turning 16).

The video that made me fall in love with him. Into the stock market at the age of 12 , loved his Muhammad Ali quote.

Lost in the Kalamazoo 18s final to Collin Altamirano earlier this month.

Re: Jared Donaldson

So many break chances wasted at 3-3, broken in the final game to lose the 1st set 6-4

Re: Jared Donaldson

Wow, impressive from the American youngster. Finally, something to truly hope for in the future of US tennis, not the only kid to look out for either.

Re: Jared Donaldson

Quote:
Watching the 16 yr old Donaldson play Ptschner with Brad Gilbert right behind me dressed in his gray Raiders long sleeve shirt and cap. The German is slice back handing the kid with his Western grip. This kid is from Cumberland RI, known for its supermarket, Cumberland Farms. He’s tall and lanky, but Petz is a proven and usually a Main Draw player. I’ve never seen a guy hit only slice backhands, but that’s the steady diet Petz is giving the kid, who’s down a break early. His forehand is big, but Petz just gave him a dink slice and the kid moved up to the ball tentatively and slow. It’s fun watching Petz play, he just hit serve volley winner.
Quote:
Talking to Gilbert. He said Petz plays with the slice all the time. He has a 2 handler, but doesn’t hit it. BG says an American, Steve Johnson plays the same was on backhand. P is giving Donaldson a clinic. The kid doesn’t have a chance when P draws him up to net.

Too early to tell how he will turn out, but for now all I can say is thank goodness he hits through the ball unlike Young and R. Harrison.
