  • Harrison advances, Goffin takes out Young

    3/23/12 9:33 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Americans Ryan Harrison and Donald Young are dealt different fates on Thursday in Miami. Harrison overcomes Potito Starace while Young is ousted by David Goffin.

    (WC) Ryan Harrison d. Potito Starace 6-7(6), 6-4, 6-4

    Harrison recovered from a tough first set to overcome Starace in two hours and 22 minutes during first-round action at the Sony Ericsson Open on Thursday night. The 19-year-old American fired 11 aces and did not drop serve a single time, saving all five of the break points he faced.

    "From the maturity standpoint I'm able to focus on the task at hand more than frustration and things not going my way," Harrison explained, alluding to his loss of the opening set in a tiebreaker. "I'm learning how to take things and say, 'Even though to this point I haven't been able to execute what I want to, let's keep trying. Let's not dwell on what hasn't happened. Let's look forward to making sure that I try to do everything I can to make positive things happen.'"

    Next up for Harrison is world No. 3 and Indian Wells champion Roger Federer.

    (Q) David Goffin d. Donald Young 7-5, 6-4

    Young lost his Indian Wells opener to Steve Darcis and he suffered the same fate in Miami, falling to Goffin in straight sets. The 22-year-old American led by a break in the first set only to quickly squander his advantage. Goffin rallied to steal the set and he carried his momentum into the second.

    The 148th-ranked Belgian, who qualified for the main draw, led by a break in set two but gave it back and saw Young draw level. One more break to Goffin, however, ended Young's comeback hopes. Goffin won despite one ace and nine double-faults as he abused his opponent's second serve by winning 28 of 37 second-serve return points.
