Vince Spadea's 21-match losing streak, which lasted from October 1999 to June 2000, is not in jeopardy yet. Heck, DY's current streak is only 6 matches. It is not even his personal record (11 - from his early days on the tour).

DY appears to be playing the Savannah Challenger next week. Whatever happens there will not affect his losing streak, since only ATP-level events count. However, I think it is a fair possibility that he will lose in R1. There are plenty of players entered who can beat him - Sweeting, Russell, Odesnik, Matosevic (especially him), etc. Many of them will be seeded along with DY, so DY will not play them in R1. But even the non-seeds will be ecstatic if they draw DY. I will follow with morbid fascination, especially if he draws a fellow American like Kudla, Levine, Ginepri, or (coming from the qualifiers) Baker, Rhyne Williams, or Kosakowski. We shall see.

So, in barely an hour, DY gets waxed 6-0, 6-1 by Mathieu, who is 1) coming off a major knee injury, 2) has been on the tour so long that DY was 10 years old when turned pro, 3) probably not getting any sleep because he became a father last month, according to the ATP website, 4) has seen his ranking fall to 352, and 5)couldn't avoid being typecast after "The Bad News Bears." Unless DY was injured, I would say this is the beginning of the end for him. Hope he proves me wrong.

All mention of DY has been removed from the tournament website, so I would say he is not playing Savannah. It's just as well, since he would be brutalized by most of the other entrants.

DY should just play challenger events until the French Open. He's just not in any good form right now. I'm really going to hate to see him tumble out of the top 100 if this keeps up.

DY's year has been like Spadea 2000 (21-match losing streak, drop in ranking from 20 to 213, overall record of 3-28). Or like Golubev 2011 (18-match losing streak, drop in ranking from 36 to 147, 6-26 overall record).

We can dream otherwise, but there is almost no chance he will win tomorrow. I give him at best a 10% chance of winning.

Well at least he was much more aggressive this week. He had no life in Monte Carlo. I definetely hope he plays the small tournament the week before Roland Garros. Could hopefully get an easy draw and a couple wins. He realistically will lose first round of Rome and the French.

He needs to get some wins soon. Give him some cushion before he has to defend his points later in the season. Gotta hope for cake draws.

Donald will suffer his 8th straight loss. He has a 1% chance of beating Simon, and that because of the possibility that Simon gets injured and has to retire from the match.

Uncannily accurate prediction from Bearitone315! He lost 6-2 7-5, although he did get a break at the start of the second set when Simon lost concentration.

Watching Donald, I don't get the feeling he has any strategic sense when rallying. It all seems a bit haphazard. And he makes so many unforced errors. He badly needs a proper coach who will sort his brain out. I lost my connection midway through, so perhaps he played better when I couldn't see him.

I hope Brian Baker wins his final qualifying round and draws DY in the MD. That would be most interesting.

He draws Bellucci, looks like his losing streak will continue.

It is so easy to agree with you, I'm almost willing to be a contrarian and say that DY will finally find his form and win. Almost.

Here's a surprising thing. Belucci is 10-10 in 2012...pretty decent...includes wins over Ferrer, Anderson, and Melzer. Yet his ranking has fallen from 37 to 70. DY is 2-11 in 2012...pretty horrible. Yet his ranking has only fallen from 39 to 50. It all depends on who had points to defend.
