IW qualifying rd 2: Marinko Matosevic def Donald Young 6-4 4-6 7-6 (8)

Matosevic saved 5 match points, I have never actually seen Donald play but he surely is a little too old to be losing to these players in qualifying rounds and still be predicted to be a future name in tennis. Donald had 3 straight match points at 0-40 5-6 but blew it. Donald also was leading with 2 minibreaks 5-2 in the tiebreak. At 8-8 in the tiebreak Donald doublefaulted, makes you wonder about the mental state of the kid...

Checked some stats about Marinko Matosevic and he is 24 years old ranked 240 and has never won an atp match in his life.

Did anyone watch this match?

Actually he saved 5 match points : 4 at 5-6 (0-40 then 40-A) and one in the tie break at 6-7 on his serve.

MM wins a lot of these close matches, he is extremely clutch.

But I agree, Young should not be losing these types of matches in his own country.

Matosevic behaved like a proper asshole. Some nice remarks about Youngs skin colour after the match too although I dont know the exact wording. So this is Klein version 2.0, just awaiting a suspension.

Really?

That's really disappointing if it's true, were you at the match? He does have a hot temper but he seemed to have put it behind him during the last year or so.

No, I am not in Indian Wells. A friend of mine watched the match and was so disgusted by Matosevics behaviour he called me right aftet the match.

Thank you Young, thanks for stealing my money. Luckily I didnt follow this or I would have commited suicide.

I dont know why its prohibited to insult in GM, we should be able to at least insult this type of players, I am so pissed.

Black listed for ever.

since when is it prohibited to insult the players on MTF? If such a policy were to take place in a real and efective manner, this site would lose half of its members in the first two weeks.

Marinko :yeah:

I saw the third set.

btw, I didn't hear any of the remarks someone else reported. Matosevic was a bit upset with the crowd because he got NO cheering even for good shots and, of course, nothing for winning the match either. He's a crafty player and likes to use a lot of gamesmanship. He disputes calls and acts as if he's gotten bad ones when he knows he hasn't. U.S. crowds that go see Donald want him to win so badly, and want to help him sort of get over the hump and do well. It's almost like the crowd feels sorry for him in a way. It's hard to describe.

When Matosevic was serving to stay in the match, and got down 0-40 or 15-40, I can't remember which, Donald started hoping for a mistake rather than being aggressive and going after the win. There was a call on the baseline that Donald thought was out as did most of the (biased) crowd. I've learned that you can't call a line unless you are directly on the line so I don't know if the ball was out. Of course, then after that, Donald felt other things didn't go his way as well. He also got impatient. I think it was basically nerves.

Thanks for the report. Hopefully he didn't make any remarks. Perhaps he said something and it got interpreted the wrong way or the Young supporters were looking for a reason to hate him. He is a player you either love or hate but he is entertaining to watch though. Unfortunately Tennis Australia decided to hate him and cut his support so he has had to go it alone and is doing well. Still got a WC to the Aus Open though. He is a late maturer and he and Nick Lindahl seem to be thriving off each other's successes. In 2005 his ranking was in the 1000's, 2007 it was in the 600's, then 2008 it ended at 323 and last year he finished at 171.

I was shocked that he turns 25 this year. He looks a LOT older.

He would have gotten crowd support if he hadn't been playing Donald, but they didn't like the way he was treating Donald. Stare downs, etc.

There were plenty of them before the war in the 90s.

Marinko is always mouthing off on court. I remember him in Sydney when he screamed out at Seppi that he had the worst serve on tour.

He has fought very hard and coming back from back problems after being fucked off by TA.

Oh, fantastic, that's what Australian tennis needs, another Klein :o I saw him at AO, he gets pretty fired up which I don't mind seeing at all, it's abuse of players that concerns me if he is doing that.

People on this forum just like to assume that because an Aussie said something to another player at the end of the match he is a complete racist. I love it when people make up bullshit.
