I am the LAST person to be singing this scrubs praises, but DAMMIT if he didnt impress me last night against "donkey"!
He had pop on the serve, the forehand had hints of Nadal, the backhand looked like it had some Rios influence, and he was fit and in most rallies!
He even showed amazing feel around the net.
I think he himself is starting to believe.
Needs to work on that negative body language though.
Hell I'm starting to beleive!

Yes, well... the signs are promising but let us just appreciate that his talent will take a couple of years at the least yet to truly blossom... when it does, we will see how far it gets him.

I didn't get the Nadal feel on the FH at all from Young. It just sat up a lot. It seemed to have no bite. Sometimes it's hard to tell from TV, but it sure looked iffy to me.

His latest results have shown that, I'm not surprised.

Donald is definitley one of the players to watch out for in the next few years.

Can sense he can pull of some big shocks in the years to come at the majors.

It's a shame he didn't pull off the win last night. But watching him last night, you could definitely understand why people got excited about him from the beginning. I'm glad somebody else saw the Rios influence on the bh.
