WIMBLEDON & DONALD YOUNG & NYT
Everyone knows by now that Federer won his 5th consecutive Wimbledon title, though he was actually pushed into a fifth set -- very rare for Federer -- by Nadal.
Overlooked, however, is the fact that Donald Young, the young American player who was featured in an article in the New York Times Magazine recently, seeded third, won the Men's Junior (don't call them Boys) title, beating top seeded Vladimir Ignatic from Belarus, 7-5, 6-1. With his partner, Johnny Hamui, he also made it to the Men's Junior Doubles finals, but lost in three sets.
