Twelve months ago Young was ranked a mere 111 but he zoomed up the rankings in the second half of the 2011 season, reaching a career high of 38 in February, largely a result of his run to the US Open quarters last year and reaching his first ATP final in Bangkok.

It's a key summer for Young who needs some big results after a dire 2012 so far. Unbelievably he's won just two matches all year and he's on a horrendous 13 match losing streak which stretches back to February. 

A confidence player, it's strange that Young hasn't made the decision to play a few challengers and get some matches under his belt as he's been losing comprehensively to players he would normally beat. A classic example is his 6-1, 6-4 defeat in Eastbourne a few weeks ago to world number 200 Jamie Baker.

It will be music to the ears of wildcard Johnson who's far better than his ranking of 402 suggests. A two-time NCAA Singles Champion, he's spent the past few years at University of Southern California establishing a reputation as the most dominant men’s college player in recent memory. Having won an incredible 72 straight singles matches, Johnson could well turn out to be the new John Isner in the next couple of years.
