  • Chardy extends Young's losing streak to 16

    8/7/12 4:29 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Chardy extends Young's losing streak to 16 Donald Young drops his 16th match in a row as he goes down to Jeremy Chardy on Monday in Toronto. Chardy advances to a second-round meeting with fellow Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.


    Jeremy Chardy d. Donald Young 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-0

    Young suffered his 16th consecutive loss on Monday in round one of the Rogers Cup, falling to Chardy in two hours and 12 minutes. The 84th-ranked American showed early signs of ending the skid, which began way back in February at the indoor hard-court event in Memphis. Both players were awful in the first set--especially on serve--but Young earned three breaks to Chardy's two before serving it out at 5-3.

    Chardy gave a break back midway through the second, but he recovered late to take control of the match. After blowing four set points with his opponent serving at 5-6, the 47th-ranked Frenchman finally converted on his seventh chance at 6-4 in the tiebreaker. From there it was all over for Young, who squandered a 40-0 lead to begin the third and disappeared the rest of the way. Chardy cruised into a second-round clash against countryman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga without dropping a single game in the decider.

    (WC) Vasek Pospisil d. Andreas Seppi 4-6, 6-4, 7-6(5)

    A different losing streak came to an end on Monday night, this one to the delight of the home crowd. Pospisil, Canada's No. 2 player behind Milos Raonic, had dropped 12 consecutive matches at the ATP level and was 0-11 for his 2012 campaign. It looked like the slide may continue when Seppi used one break to take the first set.

    Pospisil led by a break in the second but squandered a game point at 3-1 by botching a sitting volley on top of the net and got broken. Despite the huge blunder, the wild card recovered to scalp the Seppi serve at 5-4 and force a third. Pospisil again failed to consolidate a break in the decider before blowing a 6-3 lead in the ensuing tiebreaker. Finally, though, he earned a mini-break when it mattered most to finish off the match 8-6 in the 'breaker. Next up for Pospisil is in-form Argentine Juan Monaco.
