both advanced again at the Calabasas Challenger again - Isner over Bobby Reynolds and Young over recent Illinois grad Kevin Anderson. Young has Bozoljac next, Isner has #1 seed Robert Kendrick.

Both are probably underdogs. Isner I think will pull it out, Young probably not.

I would love to see Young win this. His game is the most entertaining to me of the fellows left.

The American challenger tour! Where titans are born! :worship:
I assume you are being sarcastic, but where else do young players learn their trade? From where else will the next generation emerge?

Many people on here are too inclined to dismiss anything but top level tennis as not worth a ha'penny. Without the grass roots the top level would die.

If these two did get to the final, I would guess that at present Isner would be too strong for Young, but from the little I have seen of either player, I think in future years Young will prove the better player on all surfaces.

Interesting that if Donald Young won this challenger and another one in the weeks to come he could possibly crack the Top 100.

I think it's the exact opposite. Young is reaching his peak right now whereas Isner has a lot of room for improvement and in the longterm will prove to be a far more successful player.

no, decrepitude was correct.

Except that Young won't be better than Isner on grass. Other than that he was right on.

That's the plan, direct entry into the AO. If he can get there in the next few weeks, then he won't play all of the American swing.

:spit: :haha:

Isner has a great serve, Young has a great game. If Isner has a better career than Young, I will be totally shocked.

Young is not even close to reaching his peak at 17, what nonsense. Players typically start to hit their peak at 21-22.
