But it's different when you're actually PLAYING for and representing a country.

Fine.. I'll leave it alone. I just don't like it, and I'm not sure if I can follow him anymore now that he's turned his back on Canada.

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

No it absolutely isn't. Where you live physically means nothing - this is the 21st century. He can stay wired to Canada, his friends, family etc... with absolutely no problem. His girlfriend is Serbian - it makes total sense he lives there. And for a tennis player with a ranking that means he needs to play challenger events, Europe is the most cost effective and opportunity rich environment for a player - I think its great actually, and may help him mentally to relaunch his career.

You mentioned Milos by the way "not turning his back on Canada" - for all intents and purposes, milos lives in Spain as much as Canada these days, and again good for him.

Sorry, but I just don't like his decision at all. I wouldn't be surprised to see him play for Serbia in the future. He obviously prefers Serbia over Canada.
nobody gives a fuck if you like his decision or not, get over it.

Frank

Great Tournament for him, hopefully it gets his confidence to a point when he belives he can beat anyone, some good results in these next few months, and he'll be back in the top 100

He's training in Spain, yes, but his home is in Canada.. while Frank's home is no longer in Canada, it's Serbia. Do you see the difference?

Anyway.. like I said, I'll leave it alone.

look, i like you and im trying so hard to be nice but your not making it easy

this idea of yours is stupid. Moving to another country does not mean that you think the new one is better than the other one. Its just a rediculous reasoning that i fail to see any sense in

and why should she have been the one to make the move anyway? and further more who are you to assume anything about how the decision was made?. Like i said frank is canadian through and through and i doubt very much that he will ever switch nationalities

you say you'll leave it alone but it never should have been brought up

Re: Frank Dancevic

Dancevic plays Ricardo Mello in Round 1 of Qualies.

He ended up with a nice draw to be able to qualify.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Time for Frank to avenge the Wimbledon defeat. It will be an adjustment going from Dallas to Miami, though. Dallas courts had a very high bounce and it was windy. Miami has a lower bounce and is quicker but the balls don't shoot through the air much. Mello has been in poor form so he should win if he's feeling good physically.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Hopefully Frank can carry his Dallas form to Miami - what impressed me a lot last week was Frank playing 7 tie-breakers and winning them all!

No kidding. I was so confident that Frank would lose in the first round.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank gets the win over Mello, will play Sugita for the MD. Definitely some winnable matches for him there, hopefully he can keep up his form.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank

Taking that good form into Miami it seems, lucky for him he only needed 2 sets to beat Mello this time

Keep it going

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank leading *10 in the third. He was pretty clutch in the second set winning 1/1 break points, and saving all 5 against him.

Hope he gets a day off if he qualifies.
