06-18-2012, 03:36 PM

Donald isn't good at all on grass, so this result is not surprising.

A good performance from Donald Young. I am happy with his progress thus far. It's not easy playing against a home player, so five games was a fantastic effort by him.

apparently he's not good anywhere

Baker is a scrub with zero game. This is a worse loss for the Don than the Berlocq loss in Miami.

Thanks Jamie!

Disagree. He couldn't won another surface, even on hard. (only twice)

Wow bad loss, I thought he would pull through here

06-18-2012, 04:03 PM
The more talented player won. :shrug:

06-18-2012, 04:12 PM

Young must go out of Top 500 ASAP.

Donald Dung. :facepalm:

This little prick, with his Mom in tow, can just keep falling & falling & falling down the ranks!
I truly hope the USTA is done with his ass, as many times as he has come and gone, begged for help, left, came back, begged for help, left, ranted on Twitter, left, came back, etccc.....
Enough of Donald...bye bye...

the don will rise

I predicted Baker would win this and I'm really glad he did. Well done to Jamie who has been to hell and back but never gave up. You've got to respect the guy for that. I wouldn't rule him out against Soeda or Kohli in the next round either. He's really earned his WC into Wimbledon these last two weeks.

I'm sure everyone is hoping the draw Young in the 1st round of Wimbledon although having said that, people in his situation can be dangerous because they feel they have nothing left to lose.

I wouldn't go as far as saying Don has "nothing to lose" come Wimbledon. I'd say he has ALOT to lose.

He has a boatload of points to defend August-end of year. If his form doesn't pick up drastically he will finish the year outside the top 100 and he will have to start all over in Challengers/qualies again. This time not getting the USTA Wildcard's in the ATP events.

The don is pure shit and I can not wait until his ranking starts dropping come August

06-18-2012, 04:47 PM
I didn't mean he has no points to defend, I was referring to his state of mind after losing so many matches. I still think he will be an easy draw but people in his position can be dangerous because they think things can't get any worse. Remember Spadea beating Rusedski at Wimbledon to end his losing streak?

The USTA have been threatening to cut Donald loose for years and they always bring him back. He will still get WCs if he needs them.

06-18-2012, 06:43 PM
Fantastic result this! Jamie's been through so much. Now win the whole damn thing mate :rocker2:

06-18-2012, 06:52 PM
Get the fuck out of the top 50 :)

06-18-2012, 07:03 PM
Only 2 wins are against player ranked outside of top200 in 5 sets nad somehow he beat Dimitrov.
Young is the guy who mannaged to get bagled by 2nd weakes player in top50 (after Young himself ofc) - Bogomolov, last year, so no surprises here.

Donald Young being in top 50 is more proof that the "defending points" aspect of the ranking system is a mess:stupid:

06-19-2012, 02:26 AM
dude like don't even sweat it. The Don knows what he is doing. No need to waste precious resources on Eastbourne. Let's be real now.

06-19-2012, 02:28 AM
Don is so up and down. Even more than Gulbis. I could see him having one amazing year and then collapsing.

06-19-2012, 02:29 AM
The Don no longer cares about these MM events. He's focusing his energy on slams and that is where he'll make his mark: Donald Young, 2012 USO champion. :worship::bowdown:
