He's a young player, don't know his age right now. Back when he was young (10 or 11), he met McEnroe and Mac complimented his talent; Young went on to become the youngest player ever to be the #1 junior.

However, he got wildcards to some ATP-level pro events that he wasn't ready for; I think he got 11 in total, and lost in the first round each time, leading many people to say that he's all hype and will not break through in the pros.

i don't think he was the #1 junior in the world at 10 or 11, this isn't girls tennis...although i do think he was the youngest winner at the junior australian open at 15 0r 16

Oops, I phrased that wrong. They were two separate sentences - "He was the youngest ever junior #1" and "when Donald was 10 or 11, McEnroe praised his talent."

Rereading that, I phrased it pretty horridly, sorry 'bout that.

If you search Donald Young, all kinds of information comes up. If you search here, you'll get about 50 threads.

HOw old was was he when he recieved these Wild Cards? If he was 10 or 11 when he was the #1 Junior in the world, was he around this age when he progressed further on?

Augh! My bad phrasing comes back to haunt me again!

He wasn't the #1 Junior at 10 or 11. He was the #1 junior at 15 or 16. 10 or 11 was when McEnroe saw him playing and sad that he was really talented, if I remember correctly.

He got his wildcards around 15-16.
