First set was very close and Young even looked like better player on court. Had several breakpoints ,but Pospisil saved them all . After losing tiebreaker Young folded like a cheap tent .

But he gets more and more wild cards from American organizers. Why, I dont know .

Maybe I should use Young as an example more in my lonely crusade to abolish WCs.
Pospisil wasn't exactly impressive, but might could pick up some wins here.

Yes, wasnt a lot of choices to fill it. Basically they just took the next ranked player and the fact that he made the semis here 2 years ago didnt hurt. That being said. Donald Young has had a disastrous 2018. This might be the last time you see him in an ATP field for some time. His ranking is now 225. Yikes... I didnt think he would get into the top 40 again but figured he would hang out around the lower 70s-80s for the rest of his career. Not sure why he fell so much so quickly.

His ranking has zigzagged all over the place his whole career, he might yet have another top 100 run in him

Good result for tennis and humanity. Now if tournaments stop giving this clown wildcards, it would be nice.
