And that takes something if you're a pro tennis player... oung had a magical run through the US Open last year and showed some flash and hope for American tennis. But since then, he has gone 2-20 with his last win coming in Memphis in February. Young lost to Jesse Levine 6-4, 7-6 in the first round of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati- giving up a 4-1 lead in the second set.
