Not actually surprised by the result. Donald would have been hyped up to play Blake (he may be faded but still important figure as far as DY is concerned) so this was the letdown. This was a very streaky match.

This is probably worse than him losing 0 and 0 to Berlocq on a HC.

Baker must be just about the most weaponless player I've ever seen. Soft strokes with little depth. Works his arse off but there's no way DY should be even dropping sets to him.

Istomin I don't think that there's much more any other coach could get out of him.

Donald does have a new coach (Roger Smith) but he's not in Australia because for some reason he couldn't get a visa.

^Yep, Venus and especially Serena have supplemented throughout their careers. If the Young parents are hoping to emulate the Williams', they've been missing several details.

Well even the Williams sisters use outside coaching these days. Young needs a real coach and fast!!

I just don't think parents as coaches are good combinations tbh. Sure they might know what they're talking about and do absolutely fine coaching others, but coaching their own son means there's going to be more arguments and disagreements.

Think that he training camp with Murray in Miami may have helped him no end.
He trained with Muzz?
