Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank got in as an alternate into the Tallahassee challenger this upcoming week and lucked out with the draw. It's a great one and Frank has a great opportunity to do real damage at the event. If Frank wins the event, he's got a pretty good chance of making the French Open direct entry, so it's crucial.

He plays a qualifier in R1.

Re: Frank Dancevic

I don't understand. The last direct acceptance was in the 300's how was he an alt?

Re: Frank Dancevic

He did on site qualy sign in and was the highest qualifier ranked so when a main draw opening opened up he go in as an ALT without having to go through qualifying.

Re: Frank Dancevic

but alternates come from the entry list don't they? Wouldn't they just take the next player from the entry list? Frank wasn't on the entry list

Re: Frank Dancevic

There's a decent chance we will see 3 Canadians in Top 100!

How far does he have to make it? We could also have an all-Canadian final.

Re: Frank Dancevic

If he wins the event, he'll be in the 103-106 range. He won't make top 100 this week but the important thing isn't that, it's making RG direct entry. If he wins the event, he's almost definitely going to do that.

Re: Frank Dancevic

6-0 6-4 win over Sitak and 7-5 7-5 win over Baker in the first two rounds for Frank. He's had his customary lapses in both matches but was able to win each relatively comfortably regardless. He plays Reynolds on Thursday in the QF, good chance at revenge for his loss to Bobby in Indian Wells. H2H is 5-3 for Reynolds so let's see if Frank can turn his fortunes around in Tallahassee against the American.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Characteristically he went on to lose serve early in 2nd set, but got it back and held on to win in the TB. Only 38% on 2nd serves in 2nd set, but why complain?

Nice to see him on a roll.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Does anybody know if and where Frank is playing next week? Good luck today in the final.
Can the match be seen on line anywhere?
