    A number of popular ATP players recently had disappointing losses. The consensus among tennis specialists on TW board has been that those players need to stop phucking around and retire already. Following a recent trip by Donald to the Miami bakery for a double bagel, I have a strong feeling that Donald needs to consider retirement immediately. Anyone thinks the same?

    I don't want to see him retire until he 1st passes the active consecutive match loser: T. Zib & then subsequently pass the current record holder in this category: Vince Spadea. At least let Young get in the record books before you ask him to retire!

    He probably should have retired at age 9. Oh well. :eek:

    If Donald Young doesnt improve his game and start winning some matches then he should consider a different profession. Maybe tennis isnt for him if he cant win on the tour level. Its obvious hes not good enough. He has a big ego and hes just a dreamer like so many people around his age.

    Yeah, he's already 16 and hasn't even won a Major yet? I'd say he's over the hill and should hang it up. ;) LOL :mrgreen:

    It would be funny if 4 years from now Donald Young is the new hotshot lefty beating up on the veteran Federer. We'd have to eat our hats.

    Not a good sign!

    James Blake beat Berlocq the guy who double-bageled Young by the same score 6-0, 6-0. Think about it, this is not a good sign. Needless to say DY has ALOT of work to do to be a factor on the Challeger circuit let alone the ATP.

    Just because he won the Australian Open juniors and doing really well in juniors doesn't mean that he'll do well ATP. Some guys really suceeded in the juniors, but in ATP they screwed up. I don't think he'll be #1 in the ATP in the future and people should stop thinking that he will be.
