Countrywide Classic

At UCLA, some of the top men’s tennis players have gathered to compete in the Countrywide Classic.

Yesterday, Tommy Haas, who has won the tournament twice, took on 19-year-old Donald Young, and to everyone’s surprise, Young beat Haas in two sets.

While I am a pretty new fan of tennis, I can’t help but be amazed by Young. Haas is a legend, even in Los Angeles. (Kate Hudson, a friend and fan, was in the stands with Haas’ girlfriend.) This scrappy, up-and-coming kid just kept firing back, and through pure endurance beat Haas. He obviously has a great career in front of him.

Spain’s Carlos Moya played Xavier Malisse of Belgium. It took three sets and a tiebreak for Moya to beat Malisse.
