Qualifying Secound Round
(14)Frank Dancevic (CAN) 61 64 Simone Vagnozzi (ITA)

Nice easy match. Next Qualifying Round is strong rival Xavier Malisse.
Best of luck.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank went down to Malisse in 3 sets unfortunately.

Not a great run in Oz to say the least. Oh well, onward and upward. Anyone know where he is headed next?

Re: Frank Dancevic

A disapointing loss, he was up a break in the second set and theen just seemed to collapse

A very unfortunate draw, I think against anyone else in the final round (maybe not Hrbaty), he would have been better off. Hopefully he will be better wherever he heads next

I took a quick check of entry lists, and Frank's next tournament looks to be the Carson challenger, and he is also on the entry list for San Jose the next week. Perhaps California will be kinder than Australia

Re: Frank Dancevic

Re: Frank Dancevic

Great news for Frank, in as a Lucky Loser

I'm happy we'll get to see him (probably), but it'll be a tough match. Oh well, good luck Frank

Re: Frank Dancevic

How did that happen, wasn't he the 14th seed??!

But anyway, woohoo! Rip Blake a new one please. I know they trained together a bit in the off season and Frank had some success playing him, time to do it when it counts.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Grand Slam Lucky Losers Changes
Thursday, December 18, 2008

The Grand Slam Committee has approved a new procedure, starting in Australia, for ordering the lucky losers. Procedure is as we previously discussed but here it is again just to be clear:

At the end of qualifying:

0, 1 or 2 lucky loser positions available

The top 4 ranked losing players from the final round qualifying will be drawn at random for the top 4 positions;
The remaining players shall be placed thereafter in order according to the ATP Ranking used for the qualifying seeds;
3 or more lucky loser positions available

The number of players drawn at random will equal the number of LL positions + 2; for example -
If 3 positions are available then there are 5 players in the initial random draw;
If 4 positions are available then there are 6 players in the initial random draw;
The remaining players are positioned thereafter in rank order.

Re: Frank Dancevic

I had no idea they had changed the rules, thanks for that. Makes sense.

We have Kiefer and Volandri to thank for the LL spots. Which means that there were 4 players up for 2 spots. Frank got lucky, let's hope he makes the most of it.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank will be last up on Margaret Court tomorrow against Blake. For reference, today's last match on that court started at around 4 AM EST, 10 AM CET. The bad news is it doesn't look like TSN will cover this one

But there probably will be streaming
