Klein puts dampener on Damico

Brydan Klein wants to add his name to the impressive roster of Australian Wimbledon champions and took a step nearer that goal with two gutsy tiebreak wins to make the quarter-finals of the boys’ competition at SW19.
With the junior tournament struggling to catch up in what has been the most disrupted Wimbledon for 25 years, Klein and many others were forced to play two matches in one day. Both of his went to a first-to-ten match tiebreaker, a special truncated third set decider brought in to speed things up and clear the backlog of junior matches. Klein, seeded ninth, beat Great Britain’s Joshua Milton 6-1, 3-6, 10-5 in the second round match and followed it up with an impressive 1-6, 6-3, 10-7 win over the USA’s Kellen Damico in the third round.

“I don’t mind the weather at the moment because I’m winning but it took me four days to play my first round,” said Klein, the reigning Australian Open junior champion. “I was pretty confident at first in that one but after four days I wasn’t so sure. I played really well and then luckily enough I got on and got a couple of matches one today. My coach told me whoever sticks to their routine, keeps it together mentally and stays relaxed is going to win the tiebreaker and basically that’s what you have to do. When I played the second one I was confident because the first tiebreaker had been a tight one but Damico also won his first match in a tiebreaker so I guess we were even going in. During it he broke down a bit and gave me a chance.”

The win over Damico avenged Klein’s defeat to the same player at the same stage of Roland Garros a few weeks ago. “He’s a very, very tough round of sixteen,” said Klein. “I played him in the round of sixteen at the French Open as well and lost in a tight match that I could have won if I hadn’t lost it a bit mentally; so I really wanted to come out and do better because I didn’t want to give away another match to the same guy from losing my head. I tried to keep my head and instead he lost it a bit.”

If Klein feels at home at Wimbledon it is hardly a surprise. Not only does Australia boast a string of former Wimbledon champions but Klein’s home state of Western Australia has more grass courts than anywhere else in Australia, including the one at Klein’s house. “I’ve grown up on grass and I like the grass courts a lot,” said Klein, who would follow in the recent footsteps of Australian 2002 boys’ champion Todd Reid were he to win the title. “It definitely is an advantage. I feel the European countries, some of their players struggle on the grass so it helps us out a lot but I guess it’s about who plays their game the best on the day on the surface.”

Hope so. He took care of business in his third round matchup, that's for sure. And it would be awfully surprising if Kleftakos beat him in the quarters (although Kleftakos has taken out both Klizan and Eysseric).

Bite my tongue. Kleftakos broke Young twice to take the first set 6-3. Young just opened the second set with a break.

Young comes back to win 3-6, 6-1, (10-8)

It looks like he broke Kleftakos three times in the second set. Quite a turnaround. It's unfortunate that these matches have to be decided by supertiebreaks, but what are you gonna do?

Who do you think will win??? Is a very hard decision...

Young is top300 ATP but he drop some sets during the tournament... I think he was going to win all in straight :rolleyes:
Ignatic, the actual n1, is a very good player, and RG title give him a lot of confidence...in Roehampton he lost at 3rd round in a STbreak to Henrique Cunha 31-29 :tape:
I think he should be called to Belarus Davis Cup Team vs Peru next September... :)

This is an interesting description of Young's performance from the Wimbledon web site:

"The 17-year-old’s main weapon was his powerful left-handed serve, which he used to good effect, managing to win 81 per cent of the points on his first serve. Showing a display of power and accuracy that demonstrated the sharper edge to his game due to his appearances on the ATP Tour, the American took the first set with just 31 minutes played."

I wonder how accurate that is with regard to Young's power. That's always been the biggest knock on him. If he's displaying power, that's a very promising development.

He can pop the serve in the upper 120's mphs. Power level for him is similar to Gasquet.

Young and Radwanska reign at Wimbledon

American Donald Young and Poland’s Urszula Radwanska are the new junior Wimbledon champions after an exciting climax to the 2007 Championships. Young beat Belarussian ITF Touring Team member Uladzimir Ignatik 7-5, 6-1; while Radwanska came from a set down to beat American Madison Brengle 6-2, 3-6, 6-0 in the girls’ final.

“It feels great. It's awesome. Right now I still feel really good that I've won,” said 17-year-old Young, who also won the 2005 Australian Open boys’ title. “I can't really believe that you know, I felt I was the target, you know, the highest ranked pro player in the tournament, third seed. I didn't really have a strategy. I mean, hit a lot of first serves in, make him play, move him around, try to attack and just keep a lot of balls in play and put pressure on him. The first set was the key to the match, I believe. If I'd have lost the first set it would have been a real dogfight to come back and try to win the second because he would have just got even more confident, hit more balls in, you know, loose and just go for it. But me getting up a set, I relaxed a little, he started pressing, I got a couple of breaks early.”

Young has not played junior tennis in recent months, preferring to concentrate on building his results at Challenger and Future level on the professional tour, but far from taking a step down to play juniors, Young said life could be just as tough amongst the up and comers. “It's not a big difference. Most junior guys are playing Futures. A couple of them final'd, semi'd. So you see a lot of the same guys. The Futures, Challengers guys, they're grown men. These guys are juniors, but they're going to be the next pros.”

an Interview with Donald Young.mp3 (http://www.itftennis.com/shared/medialibrary/audio/mp3/IO_27594_mp3.MP3)

Radwanska, whose sister Agnieszka won the Wimbledon girls’ title in 2005, scored a double success on Sunday when she teamed up with Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova to beat Misaki Doi and Kurumi Nara 6-4, 2-6, 10-7 thanks to a match tiebreaker. There was no shortage in the boys’ doubles final either - Italians Daniel Lopez and Matteo Trevisan beat Roman Jebavy and Martin Klizan 7-6, 4-6, 10-8.

“It’s great that my sister won and then I won,” said Radwanska. “It is amazing to be a Wimbledon champion like her.”
