Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank pulls out the win, he fought off two BPs serving for the match

Not the greatest of performances, but hopefully he can manage to take out Sela

Re: Frank Dancevic

Awesome mental test for Frank It was such a pain following the live scores because I kept expecting Frank to lose since it was so close. He must feel good about pulling out this win though.

He was down a break twice in the second set, managed to take it to a tiebreak. Down 1-4 in the tiebreak and wins 5 straight points to lead 6-4 and converts on his second set point. Saves a couple break points and wastes a couple match points while serving for the match but finally wins it

Very tough match tomorrow. Hopefully he'll treat his fans to a nice surprise

oh and also, nice serving by Frank today 67% serve percentage, 17 aces, 1 double fault, saved 8 of 12 break points, converted 4 of 11

Re: Frank Dancevic

A win in straight sets, 6-2 6-4

He won the first set despite serving only 42%, and at least from the live scores looked fairly comfortable most of the way. Faced some break points when up in the second set, but held on, a great win

Re: Frank Dancevic

Unfortunately, Frank looks like he has the worst possible qualifier spot, getting Kohlschreiber, then potentially Djokovic

I was hoping he'd get into Almagro's subsection, but oh well

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank can't beat Almagro, maybe he has a shot here with no pressure.

Well, in the first round of Almagro's section he would play another qualifier, so have a good chance for the second round and a decent shot at a third, that's what I meant It's a moot point now, of course.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Good luck to Frank. Not sure if we can take too much from his win over Sela though. The withdrawal of Ancic meant Sela was guaranteed the Lucky Loser Spot.

Frank

Hope he can keep this up! He needs to work on that first serve though.
