He entered Athens on outdoor Hardcourt instead of MC qualies. So it remains one harcourt tournament and let him 3 weeks to look after the shoulder except between the Valenciennes tournament on clay of course

To be in the MD of Wimbledon is a tough goal he would need to do an great start on clay which is unlikely to happen. He's still playing because those big events but that's tougher year after year. Yes most important he's to be healthy and trying to take some pleasure on court like in challenger tour but for that we've to wait the end of clay Anyway i don't see him come back on future or challenger qualies if the ranking continues to go down.

Coming off the biggest win of his career with an upset of Andy Murray at the BNP Paribas Open, Donald Young was back to the business of qualifying for another major event. Against the wily veteran in Arnaud Clement, Young was out of sorts out the gate, dropping the first 10 points of the match with a listless performance and cantankerous disposition. But the young American who has seemed burdened by big expectations shook off a lopsided first set and turned the match around. “I didn’t play my game in the first set. I started to keep more balls in play and kept fighting,” said Young. He took pace off his shots, forcing Clement to create his own pace, and that change in tactics forced the Frenchman to make more errors. “If I keep playing my game, the way I played in the last two sets, I can get through.” He’ll have to fight past Frank Dancevic of Canada who can produce good tennis on North American hardcourts

A pic from yesterday, he looks tired and with that zoom hopefully the ear is clean http://craighickmanontennis.blogspot.com/

6-2 3-6 2-6...
Anyway, good effort by Clement! First set in two months, a good fight even injured. He saved 3 mp and had 3 bp in the last game.

Welcome to clay, hopefully healthy.

Re: Le Gosier - Miami 2011

It lasted only one set then he has struggled. He's surely not fit enough and maybe the pain comes through the match. He knew that would be tough and now he can say goodbye to miami. The mindset must not be good with all his problems . Let's see what the doctor will say and wait he can't do nothing against his age He has to take the better decisions for the future on or off court.

Anyway whe should not find him on court before the small french tournament in Valenciennes first week-end of april if his body is ok.

The last game was so long i manage to type that message

Re: Le Gosier - Miami 2011

The first set was amazing - 6\2! He could make a bagel (6-0), but on Young's serve at 0-4 he didn't convert some bp!
But that doesn't matter, he finally won the set!

Yes, this is the main point.

By the way, he broke Young to 0 in the first game, unexpectable start

I' m pretty sure he'll get a WC there.

Re: Le Gosier - Miami 2011

The draw is awful for Arno. Don I can see him beating, but his R2 I don't. Arno probably should just tank and then take a few weeks off. Making the MD directly into the French seems like it isn't happening so at this point he needs to make sure he's fit for the clay season.

Re: Le Gosier - Miami 2011

Young is not a great player but his run in IW gave him confidence and in tennis that's sometimes enough especially against a injured guy. Arnaud is more near 20% to win atm and anyway he wants to comeback in france to see the doctor I don't know when he arrives in Miami but they are scheduled last match maybe he's in only today in Florida The match will be in the night for us then i bet on 36/26 for that match.
