Donald Young booked a spot in his fourth career ATP semifinal and he is one win from a second appearance in a title match after beating Bernard Tomic 7-6(8), 4-6, 7-5 on Friday afternoon at the Memphis Open. The American prevailed after two hours and 14 minutes of back-and-forth momentum swings.
I saw Baryshnikov a few decades back, the light landing of his shoes upon the boards, the way his fourth finger always pointed down such that his entire being intimated relaxation, the position of his head always held straight - as though balancing a glass of water upon it, - the inhuman amount of time he spent in the mid-jump air, as if he and gravity had an agreement.
A pair of blockuster quarterfinal lineups are on hand for Friday at the Memphis Open and the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. In Memphis, American fans will be treated to five of their own in action. In Rotterdam, among those still alive in the title hunt are Tomas Berdych, Gael Monfils, Stan Wawrinka, and Gilles Muller.
