Don't feel sorry for the loser, kid has a crappy attitude towards life.
Who's gonna win DY or Jesse Levine? This is a match DY should win
Donald may pull one out in Cinci. he is playing some qualifier in the 1st round. somebody took pity on him.
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.
DY please don't let me down. I wanna see
Just do it!
The Donald will now have the chance to match Federer's 17 Grand Slams with consecutive losses
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
But you haven't factored in the expenses...no wonder Mommy still coaches him...he can't afford anything else.
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 :
And he takes it 6-4 ... wow
Levine was up 2 breaks at 3-0. He was trying his best to give it back to DY.
DY up a break at 4-1 in the second.
noooo, I want the streak to go on!!!
They are back on serve. Levine broke back 3-4.
He's gonna challenge Understakers streak the way he's going.
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.
3rd or 4th deuce
I don't know if that helps or not. He'll just have more time to think about his failings!
DY up 5-4.
DY up 6-5, on serve. Levine had AD and then lost it.
Game point and Levine double faulted.....
6 all. Now it is crunch time
Levine up 6-2 in the TB
Levine wins 7-2 in the TB. Won the match 4&6.
The streak continues. Undertaker.... watch out. :twisted:
He made it! lol #17 and counting...
When is his next 1st round match?
LOL!!!!! Love it! The record is 19???
Probably USO... unless he plays Winston-Salem.
why not, it's not like he needs a rest or anything
http://www.winstonsalemopen.com/players/?intloc=headernav He's on the players list for 2012. Another first round loss in the cards?
I wonder if JMac has his tail between his legs?
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.
LOL best streak to follow
come on DY project 22!!!
maybe Nike will make him some shoes for his effort
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.
Unbelievable how often DY has given the match away during the streak. It's almost like he's trying to beat Spadea!
Now on to the Winston-Salem Open: http://www.winstonsalemopen.com/players/?intloc=headernav
I'd watch that!
Another strong effort by DY, slammed again, equaling Federer's slam count of 17!
Donald looking good, will win US Open
