DONALD YOUNG: I just love playing here. The crowd is awesome. It's always packed when I play. I love playing here. They're usually always for me. The only time it really hasn't been that way was when I played Blake and it was kind of even and then I played Roger.

Young vs Karlovic in Delray Beach Open final

Young vs Karlovic in Delray Beach Open final

Donald Young scored a 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 semifinal victory over Bernard Tomic and reached the Delray Beach Open final.

Young will face Ivo Karlovic, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over Adrian Mannarino. At a week shy of his 36th birthday, Karlovic, the 2010 runner-up, is the oldest finalist in the 23-year history of the tournament.

Against Tomic, Young hit eight double faults in the swirling wind - two in a row to lose his serve in the fifth game of the first set--but he also saved seven of 10 break points, including two at 4-4 in the second set, another while serving at 3-1 in the third and two more to hold for 5-2.

"I took a two-hour nap before the match and woke up irritated," said Young, who admitted that he was bothered by everything from the way a ball boy handed him his towel to the engine-revving of a courtside promotional car. "Usually those days don't turn out too well."
