Deiton Baughman

I think twitter's favorite should get his own thread. He has a good sense of humor.



Deiton Baughman
Age: 18 (23 Apr 1996)
Height: currently 6-5 (I asked)
Plays: right handed (two handed-backhand)

Current ATP Ranking: 799 (Career High: 794)

I haven't seen Deiton too much but he is a big hitter, similar to Ernesto Escobedo. Like EE, he didn't play much juniors or international ITFs. His best surface is hard court (he is a Californian!) but had a surprising run on clay at the Eddie Herr last year (beating many good juniors including Tiafoe, Miedler, and Zormann before losing to Rublev in 3 sets in the semis). I believe he verbally committed to USC but changed his mind and went pro.


One of my favorite tweets from him

Where should I go 4 futures? W.Africa(EbolaLand), Cambodia, Turkey(ISIS/DecapitationVille), or Mexico(Cartel Country). #Decisions

Re: Deiton Baughman

2nd futures title (Bosnia&Herzegovin F5) If my math is correct, should be ranked ~ inside 430 after next week.

Re: Deiton Baughman

Nice! He's quietly moving up the rankings.

He's playing another 15K in the Netherlands next week.

Re: Deiton Baughman

Deiton lost in the 2nd qualifying round to Klizan in 3 sets but I was impressed.

Quote:
The last match I saw on Saturday was between Detion Baughman and top seed Martin Klizan. The Slovakian is ranked No.34 in the world and would have gotten in directly into the main draw had he signed up before the deadline. Despite losing 6-4 3-6 6-0, the young American showcased himself well against someone ranked almost 400 spots above him. He went toe to toe with Klizan for the first two sets (ran out of gas in the decider). His forehand let him down at various times throughout the match, however, his backhand was solid. He has height, big serve, and power so there is a good foundation to build on. Needs to work on consistency and the forehand.
