Tomic: Players aware of Young's losing streak
Australian Bernard Tomic, who broke his own five- match losing streak with a first-round win over Michael Berrer in Toronto, says that American Donald Young’s slide has caught the attention of the locker room. Young has lost 16 matches in a row dating back to February. "We're all aware of that one," Tomic said. "It's hard for him. When you start losing and getting down five, six matches, it becomes difficult to turn it around. You need some luck. You need a match to win to get back into the position you were six months ago like myself of winning and winning comfortably a lot of tournament matches. I think for him it's the opportunity that he had [against Jeremy Chardy in Toronto where Young fell 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-0]. He was unlucky, but I am sure he will play well. He loves the hard court season. For anyone it's difficult when they're losing a lot, but you got to find a way to get out of it."
