Donald Young Forum

I don't know what is happening with the decision to create new players forums. It seems the decision should have been made by now for the July requests.

Anyhow, Donald Young has finally made the top 100 at the ripe age of 18. It will be interesting to see how he competes against the big boys at the main tour level in 2008. It would be nice to have a place where we can exchange info and impressions about his career.

Re: Donald Young Forum

Why not, he's got serious and has been learning his trade in challengers this year and his hard work has paid off with a top 100 place so he is just as worthy as many others who already have their own.

Re: Donald Young Forum

Since Sam has one- and Donald reached the top 100 at a younger age- I think it would be nice for Donald to have one too.

I like a lot of players.

Re: Donald Young Forum

I support a Forum for the Don.

Give Don a forum and delete 3 or 4 other mug forums, like Querrey.

Re: Donald Young Forum

There seems a lot of prejudice against this lad because he was overhyped and got too many wild cards before he was ready for them. But he has got his head down and worked his way into the top 100 the hard way now, and it is certain that if he continues he will have a lot of support especially from the large American contingent on here. I don't see why he shouldn't have his own forum.

Re: Donald Young Forum

I don't think PMing Steve to death or spamming the Team USA Forums is going to get Donald a forum. If you haven't noticed, the forums that were actually legitimately voted for in JULY were never even added because of some shuffling at MTF. As far as we know nothing has changed and player forums will only be added at certain times of year when poll forums like this one are opened. I think you just need to wait until one of those times to make a proper poll for Donald if you want a forum. And I think that since those of us who have been waiting since JULY are STILL waiting, you're also going to have to wait a while.
