Donald Young #2. The kid has not even grown into his body yet--hasn't even hit puberty and you're assuming he's the new Roger...ehh

I read somewhere Fish was the youngest kid who ever hit the ball over the net (at the age of 2). It was recorded on American TV. He is a good player now, but nothing special :shrug:

There will always be potential in prodigies but expectations and pressure could kill their game. Wasn't it Gasquet, iirc, who was also considered a future tennis star at an early age--well, he's good now, sometimes being compared with Fed but not as par in terms of consistency. Maybe it's a mental thing too.

What she said.

Now he's older and can't hit the ball over the net or even have enough confidence to pick himself in his Fantasy Tennis team when he is number one seed.

Absolutely, but he still has the time to get it together.
