The Donald Plays Gilles Muller today, Newport RI
Well, at least Müller is playing.
I don't think I really understand Donald Young.
The Donald still did well! 90 points!
#57 - The Donald!
Actually #56 in the live rankings but PHM could nudge him down with a QF win in Gstaad.
Next tournament is Toronto, Canada starting on the 25th! First is against a dangerous player - The Dog(DOLGOPOLOV, Alexandr)! I don't think The Donald has ever won against The Dog before! Should be interesting match.
Both are picking up their game right now.
Their h2h is tied 1-1, with DY winning their HC matchup in three at Delray'15 but losing the rematch on Nottingham grass four months later in straight sets.
Thread bump; @jaggy has lost his enthusiasm, despite The Donald winning a nailbiter of a match in his hometown! Krajicek must be devastated losing that TB and then the match, 6-3 6-7(10) 5-7 after 2 MPs in the TB and serving at 5-3 for the match in the third.
DY plays Smyczek in 2R for the 16th time with the h2h 8-7 despite losing the last four times.
The Donald will make Smee walk Spanish down the hall
Great impressed for the Don against Smyzcek. Donald made Tim run for miles. Initially, he was up to the task. Then, there was a ridiculously long point in the second set. Donald got the fitness advantage and managed to hold it for the rest of the second and the third set. Tim was never really able to recover. Donald changed his strategy in the second set and stopped coming forward and stayed back at the baseline.
After all of these years, Donald still has the habit of running through approach shots. That drives me crazy to watch.
The Donald gets Opelka in the QFs. This kid has fight in him, coming back from 2 MPs down at 3-5 in the third to win 15 of 18 points for the 7-5 win.
As much as I want success for The Donald the thought of an Isner-Opelka matchup is just too amusing.
At home with the Donald
Taylor could put the Fritz on that matchup.
The Donald came through again! Amazing! Into the 3rd round or quarterfinals in his hometown- Atlanta!
Now number 49th in the world! The Donald picking up his game!
Live rankings are still at #57; more importantly, he is #87 in the race so he has some large points to defend (4R USO, 3R Rogers Cup which drops off next week, 3R Basel).
The Donald lost second round to Marcus Badghdatis 6-4, 4-6, 6-4!
Got to see some of it. The second and third sets were pretty entertaining and competitive. Don has got some talent, but he must have some of the worst footwork on the tour. It is just plain silly watching him run through approach shots all match long. His great hands bail his footwork out time after time.
The Donald needs to go deep into the draw at this year's U.S. Open to retain his ranking! Hopefully, he has learn how to do that! If not, he probably fall into the 100s again.
