Another 18-year-old, Donald Young, could not close the deal in his all-American first round match against qualifier Amer Delic despite racing out to the 5-0 lead in the opening set. He held two set points on Delic's serve in the 10th game of the set and then had four more in the first set tie-break, but Delic came back to win the tie-break and the match, 7-6(7), 6-3.
"To go down 5-love was a combiniation of him playing well and me just coming out kind of sluggish," said Delic. "This morning when I woke up, I didn't even think we were going to step on the court; there was a monsoon coming through. I guess it was maybe a lack of preparation."
Delic, who also reached the second round at Delray Beach in 2004, captured the title at the Dallas Challenger two weeks ago. In January, he reached the second round at the Australian Open and fell to Argentine Juan Monaco 8-6 in the fifth set after holding a two set lead.
He said: "This has been kind of a year of comebacks. I've had a couple matches already down 5-0, in a tie-break, the guy serving down two sets to love and a break and coming back. It's been an interesting year, but I hope to keep the streak alive."
Young had posted his first career ATP-level match win last August when he defeated Delic in New Haven.
