1/15/2007 - Tennis

TAMPA, Fla. -- Upon further review, Donald Young still hasn't won a pro singles title, despite reports to the contrary.

Sunday, it was reported by The Associated Press that Young had defeated Michael Lammer of Switzerland 6-4, 6-3 in a Grand Slam Futures event. He didn't.

Turns out Lammer won, defeating Young 1-6, 6-3, 6-1 in the championship match.

Young is ranked 491st in the world. He earned eight ATP ranking points
and $900 for finishing second. Lammer won $1,300 and 12 points.

The 17-year-old Young, from Atlanta, defended his USTA Boys 18 Junior
Championship title last year. In 2005, Young became the first
American since Andy Roddick to win the Australian Open boys singles
title and be ranked No. 1 in the year-end ITF World Junior
