Donald Young is hardly the yardstick to measure his level. Still it's a win and it's straight sets so that's not too bad.

Early resistance from Young but it seems like he faded pretty fast.

Cilic was playing as well as I've seen in awhile. Young had no chance with the way Cilic played and Marin made that apparent after the 1st set and then Young kinda faded at the end.

Cilic looked pretty good, granted it was the same old Don. The next round should be a bit more of a test, but this is a great start

I expected this. Cilic is a terrible matchup for Young. Young cannot handle consistent pace.

Good from Cilic to get a solid match anyway, really hard to predict how he was going to start at the Aussie.

Not a bad play from Marin, especially at the net, he was showing improvements.

Yeah, some life back in Marin's game. He looked focused too for a change. Giraldo will tell us more where's he's at ATM. Good job :yeah:

First class description ;)

I think today he was faster than he's ever been.

He was also hitting the ball with great power.

Wonder how a Cilic/Isner match would be??

He should be able to reach to say the least as long as he doesn't choke it away.

Donald is still too young to face up to the big boys. He does have a cute game though :yeah:

They were in juniors at the same time. Don, while a year younger, turned pro a year earlier too ;)

Obviously I made a poor attempt at a joke. That's why you didn't get it ;)

marin was raising in his game in this match, that's good. he was solid, while young was complete desaster.

NID, Young is not gonna beat a top 30 player anytime soon, his career is going down the drain faster and faster with every wasted year :o

I wouldn't make such drastic statements because he lost to Cilic. Liek I said Cilic is just a horrendous matchup for him. Young dominated players in the qualies.

But he does need to make a move this year(establish himself comfortably in the top 100)

Agree 100% here, I believe he will be able to establish himself, he just needs to play like he did in qualies.

Come on Jeff, he was hyped as the next best thing and he's done nothing more than to be a competent challenger player, he does well against players of his same caliber but once he faces tougher opposition he can't deal with it.

He should have separated from his parents a long time ago, it is definitely not working, the guy hasn't really improved in a couple of years.

Young will be 22 in July, his time is running short if he wants to make an impact in the world of tennis.

He's almost there,just a few years more of getting used to playing the big guys.By the time he's 29-30 he'll probably go on a tear and win each slam atleast once.

Young is so immature, so whiny on the court. Nothing has changed.

Marin was fine, but this match was not a challenge.

Actualyy he has improved a bit. But i think he needs some training and conditioning. He still has the pace and stamina of a junior player.

At last a good match for Cilic. I thought he was lost forever.

I am guilty as the next tennis affeccionado to dump on Donald Young, but i have seen improvement, and he has a sweet lefty game.
That forehand can be N A S T Y.
I used to think he was undersized, but there are smaller players.
If you take for example Jenkings, who is 6 2, he couldnt compete either and is now headed to coaching before he is even 25.
I just think all the hype was unfair to his development, and he now has internalized all that pressure.
At 22 though, its time to make a serious push and see if this is gonna result in a decent career.

If Cilic and Isner meet in the 3rd round, then Isner will win.
