Jr. Davis Cup Update

SpencerOpen05
Thanks to the anonymous reader who told us that Donald Young will not be going to Barcelona with coach Mike Sell to play on the Junior Davis Cup team. [UPDATE 9/29: Finally found the newspaper story quoting Spencer.] Instead, it will be Wil Spencer, who had just gotten off the plane in San Diego Wednesday where he was to resume training with coach Wolf von Lindenau when he received the call to join the team. He didn't even leave the airport and within an hour was heading back to Florida, where he joined the team for the flight to Spain on Thursday. Spencer, who just turned 16 a few weeks ago, won a round at the U.S. Open Juniors as a wild card. Earlier this summer, he finished third in Kalamazoo in the 16s and sixth at the Clay Courts in the 18s. Young is entered in the ITF B1 in Tulsa next month--I don't know if his injury will force him to withdraw from that event.

I'm not sure how Guzick got in this conversation, but the information about Spencer is correct
