    That's what was said before Young's last few matches.

    Wow DY is one lucky guy. Jesse Levine has to be the weakest opponent in the entire draw. This is probably a 50/50 match-up right now, although DY should normally have the edge here.

    Donald Young and smoothness

    We often talk about athletes and how smooth they play. It doesn't always work in tennis. Connors and Nadal are certainly not smooth, they grind and go crazy, but they are 2 of the all time greats. On the other hand, Donald Young is very, very smooth. He moves gracefully, flows with his beautiful forehand and natural volleys. But he misses lots of easy shots and loses all the time. I don't know if his problem is mental or what. He's a mystery.

    The Donald will now have the chance to match Federer's 17 Grand Slams with consecutive losses :D

    In touring pro terms that is poor. How much (if any) do you think will be left after expenses?

    Ryan Sweeting (Delray Beach)
    Steve Darcis (Indian Wells)
    David Goffin (Miami)
    Benoit Paire (Casablanca)
    Paul-Henri Mathieu (Monte Carlo)
    Thomaz Bellucci (Nice)
    Grigor Dimitrov (Roland Garros)
    Jamie Baker (Eastbourne)Mikhail Youzhny (Wimbledon)
    Michael Russell (Newport)Steve Johnson (Atlanta)Andreas Seppi (Olympics)
    Jeremy Chardy (Toronto)

    Oh yeah, a very impressive list. 2-3 fairly good players, the other ones are either semi-retired or never made it. I've heard somewhere the highlighted names, but can't associate them with faces for my life sake.

    If you don't know Goffin, Darcis , Ryan Sweeting , ... you're not really following tennis at all ..
    Goffin, a youngster, made an impressive run at RG this year and this was widely higlighted by ATP website.
    Darcis, who took down Berdych in the olympics and made 3rd round.
    ...
    Just saying these aren't just some random players

    And the lucky (or unlucky) qualifier is :drumroll: Jesse Levine.

    :levine enters the arena jumping and running through and ripping a big poster with number 17, smoke and cheers all around :

    Levine was up 2 breaks at 3-0. He was trying his best to give it back to DY. :)

    How can he ever make the streak? If he loses twice more, I'm sure he'll not qualify for any ATP event ever again.

    I don't know if that helps or not. He'll just have more time to think about his failings!

    I'm conflicted on if I want to see DY break it... I mean this record means more to Vince's legacy than it does to DY's.

    OP should update the first post to reflect the streak and show it the respect it deserves.

    It had to happen.

    21, with Vincent Spadea between October 1999 and June 2000.

    Maybe Young should break out a jacket with 22 on it as soon as he breaks the record :)

    If he gets to 21, Spadea should be there for the potential 22. I hope the ATP would make that happen.

    Another strong effort by DY, slammed again, equaling Federer's slam count of 17! :)
