Bellucci has beaten people this year whom DY would not stand a chance against now (though DY did beat Melzer last year during his run after he retired while DY was leading). He managed to make things more respectable against Troicki and Simon but I just don't see it happening on clay, against a South American clay courter. I give him a 0% percent chance of winning, though I would raise that somewhat if Bellucci is injured or perhaps abducted by wolves. DY did go on his run last year shortly after losing to 382nd ranked Bogdanovic, but DY had some decent qualifier and challenger runs prior to his big run (plus a win over Murray). Nothing this year presaging a big run.

I would probably skip the Olympics if I was him and go to Washington to defend the points with a depleted field. I'm sure he won't skip the Olympics though. He really needs some points fast before his ranking plummets.

On the other hand, this might be the last chance he has of being in the Olympics. He just barely missed qualifying 4 years ago, and I don't see him being among the top Americans in four years. But the opportunity to lose in the first round and see his ranking plummet comes up every year.

Not sure if he is eligible b/c of Davis Cup regulation.

Right now DY can't beat anyone in the top 250. Jamie Baker is in the top 250. So I predict Baker wins.

Now don't get me wrong. I truly hope DY does win. I will be happy if he wins. I just think he only has a 40% chance of winning.

Unfortunately, I was right and DY goes down to another ignominious defeat. It's a foregone conclusion that his ranking will plummet this summer/fall. He will conclude 2012 ranked #200, more of less. If 2013 continues with similarly, I will not be surprised if he retires at the grand old age of 24.

Default Re: Donald Young

This may sound crazy, but I still have hope for him insofar as salvaging a decent career. He IS only 22. Someone upthread mentioned Spadea's return from a far more ignominious losing streak. Furthermore, I'm sure there are plenty more 2-13-or-worse runs in ATP history from players who bounced back. And likely, for those players and their fans, it looked just as hopeless as it does for DY now.

So he has age on his side, but that said, one thing he doesn't have on his side is a likely coaching change. I doubt he's ever gonna dump his parents as coaches and it's hard to blame him considering what that might do to the family dynamic. This can really be a problem across all sports. My favorite baseball team, the Cleveland Indians, had a promising young hitter in the 80's named Cory Snyder. Alas, he would only listen to his daddy's hitting advice, so his strikeouts went up, up, up while his homers and average went down, and his baseball career did not end with redemption.

At any rate, I'm pulling harder for him than anyone else right now.

While we're looking at the bright side (glass is 10% full, not 90% empty), DY now has a 2-match winning streak! He's playing doubles at Eastbourne with Ebden (Harrison's usual partner), and they have won their first two rounds. They play in the quarters tomorrow. At least that's something!
