Young was upset by Steve Johnson 3-6, 6-3, 3-6. Johnson led USC to a fourth consecutive NCAA championship in May, while Young is recognized as the youngest player ever to hold the No. 1 spot in junior rankings, and the youngest ever to capture a junior grand slam title – the Australian Open at age 15. Ryan Harrison, John Isner and Andy Roddick also chose the Atlanta tournament as a prelude to the Olympic tennis competition which begins July 28.
