Indian Wells: So, We’re Doing This Again? OK.

Posted by gauloises1 on March 13, 2011

Donald Young d. (5) Andy Murray, 76(4) 63

So … the traditional Murray post-Australian Open demoralising finals loss slump is on again, then.

I must confess I didn’t watch this one (too occupied with JMDP). I hear that Donald Young played out of his skin, but there’s no way that a Murray on any kind of form loses to a player who last won consecutive ATP matches at this event in 2008. It’s unacceptable and if it he doesn’t snap out of it sharpish, there will be trouble.

So congratulations to Donald Young, and on to Miami …

    Feel bad for Andy- but very happy for for Donald. Some of his comments in his presser broke my heart. He is very aware that many view him as a formally over- hyped and currently never was. He was touchingly surprised that folks cared enough about him after the match to text him.

    As for Andy- at times he can do funk better than George Clinton.

    It has to be strange to be in Donald’s position. I watched the documentary of then-up-and-coming American tennis players (the one that was clearly produced to promote Donald but it’s best as a way to view Sam Querrey as an unheralded teen). Almost every other junior champ has at least had some ATP-level glory – that it’s taken this long for Donald to have even a glimmer of a moment in the sun must be tough and the presser showed that.
