touted as the star and future of us tennis, D.Young has failed to live up to the hype. HOWEVER recently he has been playing like a beast. IS IW the start of something big for don? he beat Murray, top 5 player and looks a sure bet to go deep here.

is 2011 the year where we see the future of US tennis? has D.Young finally 'GOT IT' has he finally broken through? i think so.

At least Murray didn't lose to him in a Slam, unlike a certain Richie :lol:

Gasquet has never played Young, plus he was not making fun of Murray, so I'm struggling here to see any point in this comment whatsoever

I must have confused Young with another guy.... who has Gasquet played (then retired I THINK) at US Open? don't remember the year, but he had a cold or something

ps : I got confused, he didn't play Young, but gave a walkover because he had a cold :haha: I think even without a leg, he could have beaten Young, he was as his peak this year

Lol he didn't play,he was injured.
Talking about Gasquet,contrary to Young,he at least deserved the hype he got at the beginning of his career considering he beat a very good Federer playing incredible tennis and almost beat Nadal on Clay.
What weapons does D.Young have??

Did you see the match today? If so, I don't think there is any possible way that one could come away saying that Donald is "playing like a beast." It's funny, because I actually said that Murray should be glad that he played Young today, or Andy might have gotten double bageled. Don't forget, it was just three weeks ago that Young lost 1 and 3 to Kunitsyn in the Memphis qualies.

For some reason there are several people on here who are still obsessed with wanting to see Donald Young mature and become a top ranked player, but I tend to think that he was simply a warm body on the opposite end of the court against a God-awful Murray. Murray honestly looked like a child just picking up a racket with his numerous double faults and unforced errors that were bouncing before even going into the net, and what's worse is that Murray didn't even seem to care.

But yeah, Donald is definitely destined to be the #1 player now for sure.

Don't know, Ask Fed's mate :lol: I am sure he will be happy to tell you. :o

But yeah, of course he deserved it, I never said the contrary, I know you were thinking of Gasquet when talking about him in the result thread, that's why I brought him up. Sadly he is washed, I think it is more difficult to come back to the top when you have already been there than having a breakthrough, because you have no expectations maybe.

Yeah, only seven years to beat a top player that had perhaps the worst match of his life.

I'd say all the hype, wildcards and special treatment was vindicated.

If it was a big win against anyone but Muggay, maybe. But as it is, no.

I wouldn't mind being wrong though, I think he's ate enough shit for his early arrogance and silver spoon upbringing. He's been showing more or less the right attitude lately, imo.

Agreed. Love seeing this youngsters set the tennis world on fire. Yanks have been singing his praises for years now. Jmac loves him. I now see why. No weapons? um what he's potent off both wings and possesses mesmerizing speed. Its good to see finally delivering on that HUGE potential. Youngs must be one happy family right now.

If he makes QF here that may change his career. but even he done it that still long way to go.

This match is only help to build his confident. nothing to do with his career because Murray not play his best

Young was pushed (by his parents) into the pros at an early age (16-17) when his playing style was still developing. He did not have the match experience that his older and more experienced opponents had, and as such Young was unable to win any main draw matches during the early part of his career.

Add to this the pressure of meeting expectations and the pressure the USTA put on him to change coaches, and you get a recipe for disaster—not to mention Young's tendency to get down on himself after losing matches. Indeed, Young's confidence took a serious hit from the start and apparently has yet to recover.

None of this is to absolve Donald Young of all responsibility for his career, but we should give him some slack. He is doing the "dirty work" now that some have said he should have done when he was playing in the main draws of Grand Slams, and I hope it pays off. American tennis could use the talents of a player like Donald Young.

I hope so he is an enjoyable player to watch. I wouldnt expect him to to be a big star, I think his game lacks a little bit of juice on his shots.He is a bit like Fognini in this way.

I'm following Juan Martin Del Potro since he was 10 yrs old and always believed he got all the skills and mental strenght to be Argentina's first ATP ranked #1. Always beating easily players 2-3 yrs older than him when he was just a kid and then a teenager.
Regarding Donald Young, I was absolutely impressed by his tennis the only time I've seen him playing live the championiship match against Delpo, I've been there at Club Casablanca Mexico (2005) beating Delpo 7-5 7-5 in a very tight final match. During those days, Delpo was #3 ITF (16 yrs old) giving 2 yrs advantage, while Donald Young was just 15! giving 3 yrs advantage! one year younger than Delpo and dominating the ITF juniors circuit. Both making their first steps on ATP circuit earning their first points at that very young age.
I honestly believed Donald was made to be one of the greatest tennis players, but growing up and entering the ATP circuit is not the same than dominating ITF juniors. Robin Soderling used to rule juniors circuit and just by now at the age of 25/26 is proving he can be a top 5 player. While a lot others never made it because juniors is against your generation's best players, but ATP is against all generation's best players used to play under a lot of pressure.
I think the main problem with Donald is his couching, he needs mental strenght, confidence and a proper experienced ATP couching will make the difference. If he wanna grow up mentally his parents must let him go and get a real ATP coach like Brad Gilbert or any other experienced one.
If this victory over Murray is finally the breakthrough? Dunno, but hope Donald can prove his real value.






No.

It is Murray who is being useless at the moment. Dont read too much into Young
