Congrtas Don! :worship:
He beat Alex Kuznetsov 7-5, 6-4 in the quarters, he beat Prakash Amritraj 7-5, 6-1 in the semis, and he won the title by beating Bobby Reynolds 7-5, 6-0. :yeah:

Interesting scoreline similarity there, every time a convincing second set after a tight 7-5 first set. This is a good sign though, Aptos must be quite a decent challenger event - Murray won it back in 2005 before successfully qualifying for the US Open.

18 years old and 0 wins at ATP level?

Hewitt and Nadal were almost winning Grand Slams by then...

Yeah, if you're not competing for Grand Slams by 18, you might as well call it quits. Good point.
No to be a regular player. Yes to be the best American player the world has ever seen, as he was hyped a couple of years ago.

Hewitt didnt win until he was 20, same with Safin.

Nadal won at 19, dispite playing through most of RG was a 18 year old.

Anyway, The Dont will take wins where he gets them.

I can't argue with that. The chances of him becoming the best American ever are just about nil. If people are going to hold him to that standard, nothing he does will be considered a success.

But that's IMG's and his parent's fault. They made him cocky and he thought he had nothing else to learn when he had everything to learn. The last time I watched him play was against Djokovic in the US Open and that was catastrophic. He has no consistence, even comparing to the other juniors. Pedro Sousa, who is far from being one of the biggest tennis talents in Portugal but he is a hard worker, was able to beat him at Roland Garros last season because of that.

USA's top player in the next few years will be probably Querrey and I don't think he is that special neither.

Congrats Donald on winning your first challenger without dropping a set and building on your success at Wimbledon Juniors. Keep on raising that ranking and rest up and get some wins in Indy. :yeah:
