The Donfather tanked here. Only possible explanation.

Young had a shot at making the top 100 here today. Blew it after being a break up in the 1st set.

Boris the Blade too strong for Don. Too bad Nole will destroy him.

Complete Don-sense. He was basically double bagelled after getting the early break

so much hype so little results to back up the fluke win against Murray :tape:

murray was playing like a mtf poster that day. The don is just america's tennis mascot.

Disappointing result. Don was leading throughout set one and had an opportunity for a double break lead. With that said, hard hitting offensive baseliners=poison for Donald. Denis took advantage, plus Don played a long match yesterday.

I'm not too upset. Been a couple of great weeks and he's close to the top 100 again.

Bandwaggon derails. end of story.

As long as he's not having mental errors, Istomin is easily one of my favorite hard court mid tier players. He's a bit more consistent than Gabashvili who has a lot more talent, but can never capitalize.

murray fans are so happy right now

Young's career will make Murray proud. Someday Murray will say to his grandsons: 'I took 9 games off Young, the cap legend'

murray fans are so happy right now

:p seriously, americans must be really pissed off to be in a slump these days. After Agassi and Sampras, having to cheer upon Young, hoping for a miracle every week :sad:
