American Donald Young in the semifinal round of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic

After a week that has shown a very focused Donald Young at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington, DC, Young's run was halted on Saturday in his semifinal match against veteran Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic.

The 32-year-old Stepanek convincingly beat the 22-year-old American 6-3, 6-3 to reach the final.

Post match Young said, "He's a veteran... 10 years my senior."

Their post-match demeanors couldn't have been more dissimilar. Stepanek walked into, and out of, the interview room with a bored air, checking his phone for messages. Young sat with the body language of a teenager, baseball cap backward, one sneaker resting upon each other, not really making eye contact with his questioners.

"He had me quite flustered."

"I couldn't get set into the way I wanted to play. It wasn't that I was nervous, but more so he took me out of my game"
