Re: Frank Dancevic

I think there were more rallies in the first game of the second set than there were in the entire first set. Early break, looking good here.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Double break

Ward's really lost the plot, Frank should cruise home now

Re: Frank Dancevic

Nice win! 76(6) 64.

Next up is Mayer, ranked 70, according to the ATP website before this tournament has a 0-1 career record on grass so certainly seems like a winnable match for Frank. Assuming he doesn't trip over too many more benches.

I'm liking his chances for his next match. I hope we'll be able to watch it again.

and I hope someone will have a video of that bench incident. That was just way too funny!

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank was running for a drop shot, and he kept going right into the bench where players sit during changeovers. He kind of stopped in front of it, turned around, sat down and the momentum made the bench go over backwards. Frank did a sort of backwards sommersault. He got up and laughed it off, it was pretty good!

Re: Frank Dancevic

I just found this in an article by the Canadian Press:
"I've had a really tough year," said Dancevic. "I've certainly not been playing my best tennis. I had my only decent week in Miami, when I qualified and beat [Philip] Kohlschreiber in the first round, then I lost to [Novak] Djokovic.

"Other than that, I haven't played well at all."

Dancevic said he believes he may be turning the corner on his game after hooking up with coach Martin Laurendeau just a few weeks ago.

He began to feel a positive change in his big game last week during qualifying for the Aegon Championships at the Queen's club in London, where he lost to Xavier Malisse of Belgium in the third-set tiebreaker.

"That was the first match when I actually felt like my game was coming back," said Dancevic, who will next play Britain's James Ward, ranked 224th in the world.
He must be frustrated with how this year has gone. Hopefully he knows he has lots of fans who are continuing to support him.

Doesn't look like it, the OOP has Frank's QF out on Court 2 So back to live-scores.

I think he's got a great shot against Mayer, if he can keep serving well he can definitely win
