One more win required to qualify for the upstart American.

Why is he the "upstart" american?

He always seems pretty grounded and down to earth to me....

Good victory for Harrison. I don`t think he may find many troubles to beat Jurgen Zopp in order to jump to the main draw.

Can't wait to see Harrison in the top 10 soon. Better to watch an all-courter like him than boring players like Nadal, Murray, and other baseliners

Upstart=Up-and-coming, starting a climb to more relevancy, higher ranking etc.

Solid! Ryan's the real American hope, not Young.

Donald is only 21, he could actually still have a decent career.

If he gets his crap together, yes

Ahh okay. In my neck of the words we use that term to describe how arrogant or how much of a brat someone is. That's why I was surprised to see that term in relation to Ryan who is a great kid.

the way the age limits are trending older, having already cracked the top 100 by 20 could nearly be considered a milestone...

Was curious about this "upstart" and googled it :)

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/upstart

Noun 1. upstart - an arrogant or presumptuous person

2. upstart - a person who has suddenly risen to a higher economic status but has not gained social acceptance of others in that class


Yep, as I see "upstart" is negative word.

I can see upstart being used rebelliously in a positive way -- there's a good Cody Chesnutt song called "Young Upstarts" that does that -- but you're right, it seems odd or wrong applied to Harrison, or Berankis for that matter. More applicable to Dimitrov.

He's only an upstart compared to Young, since Young was the Next Hope for forever before Harrison began getting results.

While Young is, well, young, he's been grinding it out longer, and is more of a peer of Querrey in terms of his juniors-to-tour trajectory timwise. And Querrey's outperformed him.
