    There's a reason for asking this...

    I was at a tennis center today, and there was a juniors thing going on. On my way out I notice a 16 year old that looked like DY, was lefty like DY, and hit like him too. It was like a doppelganger.

    Anyone have any idea about this?

    Did you challenge him to a match and tell him you thought you could beat his brother?

    No.

    Question still stands. Just curious.

    Hmmm...wondering if that's the 16 year old hitting partner that he took with him then. Seriously, it was scary how eerily similar their strokes were.

    Maybe it's a kid from DY's parents' academy, hence the similar strokes if taught by the same person.

    I don't know for sure if DY does not have siblings, but I thought I read that he was only child, and I've never heard or seen reference to any siblings.

    During Monte Carlo this year, I heard Robbie Koenig mention DY was traveling with his brother Chris. I didn't know he had a brother, don't know if it's accurate or not.

    Edit: Found an article from earlier this year where he states he doesn't have any brothers or sisters.

    LOL. Maybe a bit premature since we don't know what the kid looked like, and he very well could have resembled Young. But this made me laugh, since it does happen. Mal Washington as DY's dad was even better.
