Young and Isner one win away from Final meeting

both advanced again at the Calabasas Challenger again - Isner over Bobby Reynolds and Young over recent Illinois grad Kevin Anderson. Young has Bozoljac next, Isner has #1 seed Robert Kendrick.

Both are probably underdogs. Isner I think will pull it out, Young probably not.

I would love to see Young win this. His game is the most entertaining to me of the fellows left.

I assume you are being sarcastic, but where else do young players learn their trade? From where else will the next generation emerge?

Many people on here are too inclined to dismiss anything but top level tennis as not worth a ha'penny. Without the grass roots the top level would die.

If these two did get to the final, I would guess that at present Isner would be too strong for Young, but from the little I have seen of either player, I think in future years Young will prove the better player on all surfaces.

Interesting that if Donald Young won this challenger and another one in the weeks to come he could possibly crack the Top 100.

I think it's the exact opposite. Young is reaching his peak right now whereas Isner has a lot of room for improvement and in the longterm will prove to be a far more successful player.

no, decrepitude was correct.

Except that Young won't be better than Isner on grass. Other than that he was right on.

That's the plan, direct entry into the AO. If he can get there in the next few weeks, then he won't play all of the American swing.

If they will reach the final, I think Isner will win it..

Isner has a great serve, Young has a great game. If Isner has a better career than Young, I will be totally shocked.

Young is not even close to reaching his peak at 17, what nonsense. Players typically start to hit their peak at 21-22.

Young hasn't reached his peek yet. :lol:

Yes Young has great all round game. Future top 10 potential like Malivai Washington.

Isner. I'll have to wait and see. He has very good talent and good top 30 potential but i didn't see him on other surfaces yet to decide his potential.

Good luck Donald tomorrow. :D I think he has a better chance to beat Kendrick than he would have with John.

Like the "Federer will never defeat Nalby" thread, this post should be saved for posterity :rolleyes:

Go Don! Donald has way more potential than Isner. All Isner has going for him is a MONSTER serve.

So far, Isner only has monster serve, nothing more than power serve

While your statement is generally true, JMac did note in his book that there are a good few guys who peak as juniors, around 16 I think. That said I don't know a lot about Young so I can't say much about him. I reckon Isner can have a great career with some improvements in his game... he's already shown an ability to hang with the best anyway.

Players with all-around games usually peak later than the ones who have one or two big weapons and shape their games around them. Compare players like Young (who hasn't finished developing yet) and Federer with players like Isner and Roddick.
