Donald Not Yet No. 1 Afterall
Here’s a good goof in case yout missed it.
Last week after 16-year-old boy wonder Donald Young won the Orange Bown junior event, the USTA rushed out a press release announcing him the 2005 Year-End Junior No. 1, just barely edging out the second-ranked Croat Marin Cilic.
Unfortunately for Young and the USTA, the press release turned out a bit on the premature side. Ya see, Cilic still had one more event left on his calendar he could play, and play is what he decided to do by entering the Yucatan Cup in Mexico.
Knowing he no longer had top ranking wrapped up as he though, “The Donald” also decided to make the trip to Mexico to battle and become the youngest junior No. 1 ever. And knowing that the year-end ranking was not confirmed, the ITF, which governs the junior circuit, never did announce an official champion following Young’s OB win.
