The Young One, Haynes and Washington Match Happy

Thursday, February 28, 2008

Thank you Spalding, or whatever is the name of the tennis God. Earlier today at the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships in Memphis, Tennessee, American Donald Young defeated Columbian Alejandro Falla 6-1, 1-6, 6-3. Way to go Donald!

The Young one hasn't been having much success moving deep into tournaments as of late, I'm sure that he must be encouraged by this second round win, I know am.

Donald Young was originally set to play American James Blake in the first round of this tournament, however Blake had to withdraw because of a knee injury and was replaced with American Sam Warburg. When asked if he was disappointed that Blake had to withdraw, Young said, "I don't think I was disappointed at all," after his 6-4, 6-4 victory over Warburg. "James is one of the best players in the world. He's in the Top 10."

"Winning at this time is really exciting to me," said Young, who hadn't won an ATP match since the U.S. Open last August. "I'm happy I played well."

At the same tournament on the ladies side, Americans Angela Haynes and Mashona Washington defeated the doubles team of American Bethanie Mattek and Renata Voracova 6-3, 6-2.

Much further away at the Barclay's Dubai Tennis Championships, Vladimira Uhlirova of the Czech Republic and Russian Galina Volkoboeva defeated the doubles team of Frenchwoman Stephanie Foretz and Selima Sfar of Tunisia 6-3, 2-6, 11-9.
