    I watched Donald Young play a late evening match the other day-with very few people in the stand. Was amazed at Young's great footwork and responses. He is left handed and made such accurate placements --the whole match was exciting, even tho he looked exhausted, he persisted and won. Very exciting to watch. b Good luck!!

    I've watched him and of lately he's become a foul mouth tennis punk. The umps won't fine him or disqualify him because he uses his racist card like a drivers liscence. His poor attitude whatever it my be from will catch up to him. He needs to play the game and stop acting like a jaded brother. A good fine would help. No other player get away with swearing at the top of their lungs in England on national tv. Time to act, play and grow up to be a gentleman that is what the sport is. If not go join tha NBA NFL or just a street gang. All my friends notice it and they are yes white and black. Be a good example or else!

    I used to like DY but I was instantly disappointed when he said "no" to my 7 year old son when asked for a picture and autograph. I Said God Bless him and just walked away dejected. my son was soo sad. Amazing how your luck changes when you're too arrogant for pics and autographs.

    There is no need to give up tennis. He is only 20 and still has time to develope. However, someone needs to work with him on his focus. I've seen him play four times in person and each time he lost to a less talented player because he can not control his temper. He gets angry, almost livid everytime he misses a ball. He gets so upset it effects the next two shots. He blew at least eight match points against Matosevic in Indian Wells, some on his own stick. He will not improve until he conquers that demon.

    DY definitely shouldnt give up! he missed out on that spain opportunity but he should consider maybe training their some, but maybe having a different coaching opinion and gettin on with some1 like gil reyes on strength training to build his stamy and power game would improve his game. he should also consider using more junkball action like fabrice santoro! adding low slice to add to his game would improve his chances against taller players. DY has great net hands too. Im a fan, I wish em well!

    Says:

    Although Donald has had a lot more losses than wins he should not give up. I remember reading somewhere that Nadal had suggested that he should think about training in Spain. Maybe he should think about it. Maybe Nadal, being a lefty like Donald has seen that there is a lot of potential in Donald Young. It could also be the right time for him to change coaches!
