2004 Young was professional. He was out for a while as the best junior players in the world in 2005. In that year he was also the youngest player to win the Australian Open Junior Championships. He then scored a lot of attention in the U.S. media, which hailed him as the next tennis star. Numerous American ATP tournament organizers gave him wild cards for their tournaments. But he could not meet the high expectations at first. At the ATP Masters tournament in Miami in 2006, he lost in the first round against Carlos Berlocq of Argentina with 0:6 and 0:6. Berlocq in turn lost his second-round match with 0:6 and 0:6 also. Young then initially focused again on smaller tournaments.
The Wimbledon Junior Championships he won in July 2007 against the number 1 in the juniors, Vladimir Ignati.
On 19 August 2007, he won his first ATP Tour singles match, where he won in three sets against Amer Delić in New Haven. At the 2007 U.S. Open he reached the third round. There, the Americans failed in four sets to the Spaniard Feliciano Lopez.
On 2 October 2011, he reached in Bangkok for the first time in his career an ATP final, but lost 2:6 0:6 against Andy Murray.
