Re: Frank Dancevic

I had to refresh my browser three times to make sure I got the score right.

More proof Frank will never be a top 100 player consistently. Way to build on that momentum. Really, one good tournament this summer, and the rest look like first and second round exits waiting to happen. Challenger circuit beckons...

Yeah really. I was there and I have no idea. Simon just absolutely dismantled him - it was not pretty. When was the last time Frank had a match in which he managed to hold serve only twice? Especially disappointing in comparison to the excellent efforts put forth by Polansky and Niemeyer. Those guys were pushing top 5 players to tiebreakers while Frank managed 3 games against Simon?

But still, it was great to see him play. Got to watch one of his practice sessions too which was awesome.

This is a such a great tournament, I wish I could have stayed longer.

Re: Frank Dancevic

A friend of mine caught this on TV and taped it, so I've uploaded it. It's a profile of Frank done by The National. Interesting stuff.

Poor Franky. I certainly hope his life isn't as miserable as this piece tries to make it out to be!!

Don't forget Milos Raonic, he played incredibly well during qualies and against Gonzalez

Re: Frank Dancevic

I will upload my own pics from Montreal later, but here are a couple I found.











Not from Montreal but I just came across this, love it.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Thats a real shame that result to Simon.

I only caught the first 2 games as It began to rain and I assumed they would be off for a long time, as it was 3am over here in England and I had to be up a 9am I decided to head to bed.

Its a real poor loss but Frank has to bounce back, he might not like going to Nashville and places like that but right now making the semis of one of those challengers and earning about 30-40 points here and there will protect his 104 world ranking and maybe even just get him into the 90s where he should be ok to enter most of the ATP tournaments.

He needs another big tournament run before the end of this year, only one and that would see him well into the top 100. Another semi or final or even a tournament win should be enough to break into the 80s, a win taking him into the 70s maybe 60s!

Great find thanks. I think it kind of overstates the case a bit - Federer and Nadal are in a world of their own, even compared to guys in the top 10 like Gonzalez. But its clear its a much tougher slog for a guy like Frank in tennis than in other sports.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Lost R2 in doubles.

Not entered in qualifying for Cincinnati (or wasn't ranked high enough to get in, not sure), so I guess he'll just rest up before the US Open. Hopefully this last loss, awful as it was, won't deflate the momentum he had built this summer.

Odd. Can any of our insiders help us out here? Cinci is one of the biggest events of the year, I'd hope he had a good reason for pulling out.

Re: Frank Dancevic

He probably just wants to get ready for US Open qualies which will be the week after this coming week.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Wouldn't playing matches be the best way to do that?

Re: Frank Dancevic

Apparently Frank has a hip injury. Serious? No clue, as usual getting info about Frank is next to impossible.

Off topic - as I was watching yesterday's final couldn't help but remember back to the summer and fall of 2007 when Frank beat Del Potro three times in the span of a few months. And here we are, 2 years later with DelPo in the top 5 and challenging for slams and Frank still languishing out of the top 100. Slightly depressing. Anyway..
