Murray avenges Indian Wells loss by convincingly beating Young in the American's two biggest career matches thus far (also US Open fourth round).
Except Young is a good three or four years older than Murray was in 2005.Andy just a better class of player today although Donald looked tired and overwhelmed by the situation. On could draw parallels to the 2005 final where Federer defeated Murray in Murray's first tour-level final.

Well, sure, it's not exactly history repeating itself. I'm just saying career-wise Murray and Young had very similar accomplishments coming into the Thailand Open in 2005 and 2011 respectively. Both lost to number 1 seeds in the final having had some big wins earlier in the week. It kickstarted Murray's career. Only time will tell whether it'll give the same incentive to Young.And as much as love Murray, he even now is nowhere near as imposing as Fed 2005 was. Also, Murray was ranked outside of the top hundred at that time.
