Donald Young, who has only won one match on the ATP tour this season, believes he is on the way back up the rankings. The American, who cracked the Top 40 in the fall of 2011 before his ranking dropped to No. 202 in February, is currently ranked No. 154.

Last year, Young endured a 17 match-losing streak, but this season has won a Challenger in Mexico and reached the quarterfinal of the Winnetka Challenger last week.

“Confidence for sure, that was a problem,” the 23-year-old told Pressconnects.com after his 5-7, 7-5, 6-2 loss to Tennys Sandgren in the first round of the Binghamton Challenger yesterday. “I had some wrist and back problems, but it’s a part of tennis so you have to keep going. I will definitely be back. It will take time, you can’t reverse a whole year in a couple of months, it’s going to take some time. You just go week to week, and try to keep getting better.”
