Apparently Young has withdrawn from the AO. A bizarre decision if an injury isn't the reason.
He is entered in the Carson Challenger, which starts Jan. 26. If this is a matter of not wanting to go through qualifying, I have to question his judgment.
This is way late, but I'm pretty sure he got hurt at the end of last year which is why he pulled out of the last Challnger or two last fall. I'm gonna say he has a re-occurrence of that injury which is why he pulled out of the Aussie and Chennai qualies this year.
Don beat Soeda 6-2, 6-3 and then Kyu Tae Im, who was a special entry so he must be playing well 6-4, 4-3 retired due to a hamstring problem. Great work Don he is in the semis now . He will now play second-seeded American Robert Kendrick, so good luck Don
Wow "THE DON" has just beaten Kendrick 2-6/7-5/6-3 and has reached the final against Isner , he's been an absolute mess all year but suddenly that old 'Donald magic' has shown up once again , the last time i saw Kendrick he gave Tsonga a good fight at Indian Wells and Kendrick had beaten Donald soundly in their last two meetings even though Donald got the better of him before then but it seems like something has clicked with Young Donald again, has he finally done the right thing and dumped his parents? , firstly i can't believe he came from a set down and secondly it's a shock to see he held his nerve towards the end of the vital second set, well done son , it's hard to believe he's still only 19 years old and people have totally written him off already (even i have at times) but hopefully he'll gain some good confidence from this and take the final.

After that really close win in the first round against Juska I figured it was just a pathetic win and he would bomb out in the next round, but I also thought he might gain confidence from pulling through and finally winning a match, I guess that was right
Thanks . He's my favorite ATP, looks like not too many other peoples though.... I tried to goodrep you, but I don't rep often enough here so I can't cause I did before I guess . Thanks for being so nice to me though .
