2012 US OPEN: Donald Young Suffers First Round Elimination

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

American Donald Young during 2012 US Open first round match again Switzerland's Roger Federer.

 American Donald Young did everything he could to stop the near-invincible, top-seed Roger Federer, but there was no stopping the world No. 1, who eased his way to a 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 victory in his opening round on Monday.

From the beginning, Young struggled with unforced errors and audibly voiced his frustration with everything from the windy conditions, to his inability to connect on the backhand wing, to the distracting stadium lights. But no matter what the problem was, an effortless Federer was just too good for a clearly dejected Young, who couldn't seem to solve the Federer puzzle.

The Olympic silver medalist dominated from the beginning, coming up with a winning answer for everything Young threw his way. Young, on the other hand, let his emotions get the better of him, constantly battling his own demons and allowing Federer to take control of the match.

With this loss, Young will drop from No. 81 in the rankings to around No. 120 when ATP rankings are released on Sept. 10.
