• Monaco back in action against Young

    Monaco back in action against Young Two days after losing the Valencia title match, Juan Monaco will take the court for first-round action in Paris. Monaco is going up against an in-form Donald Young.

    There is no rest for the weary at this point--the end--of a grueling ATP season; at least not when it comes to Juan Monaco. Just two days after suffering a brutally tough loss in the Valencia Open final to Marcel Granollers, Monaco will be back in action at the Paris Masters.

    The Argentine is up to No. 34 in the world and in position to snag a seed for the 2012 Australian Open. He is a solid 28-25 for this season after his surprising run in Valencia, where he upset top-seeded David Ferrer in the process. Monaco, who had a four-match losing streak going prior to last week, has advanced past the Paris opening round on three straight occasions.

    Up first for Monaco on Tuesday is Donald Young, whom he has never faced. Young is also in fine form and is enjoying a breakout year on the ATP World Tour. The 22-year-old American currently registers at No. 43 in the world, two spots off his career high. Young, who is 19-16 at the ATP level for his 2011 campaign, went through qualifying over the weekend by getting the best of Maxime Teixeira and Jarkko Nieminen.

    The question heading into this one, of course, is Monaco's ability--or lack thereof--to rebound. The Valencia final lasted three hours and was incredibly draining in both the physical and mental departments. With Monaco's opponent playing well, it could be too much to ask for him to get past Young.

last year this would have been an easy pick....Monaco all the way, but this is a new and totally surprising Donald Young since the US Open, so I think he'll win this one.
