Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank D. won today and is playing some solid tennis. If he can make it to a few semis or finals at
thess qualifiers, his ranking should start to get alot closer to top 100

Re: Frank Dancevic

Solid 76 76 win for Frank over Dimitrov today. Was really close match throughout - Frank simply seemed to play the important points better, particularly in the breakers

Re: Frank Dancevic

Amazing 3 set win over Clement 67 64 64. Really impressive, best win in some time. Plays Bohli next, winnable match.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Sounds like the Bohli match was pretty amazing stuff. I guess Frank had a match point and won it but touched the net, costing him the point and he went on to lose the match.
Dancevic lays it all out there, in vain

An unbelievable match at the Open de Rennes Challenger in France Saturday, a semifinal between Canada's Frank Dancevic and Stephane Bohli of Switzerland.

Dancevic had already spent more than 2 1/2 hours on court Friday to beat top seed Arnaud Clément in the quarterfinals, a match that included two consecutive medical timeouts to have both his ankles taped.

The finish was not to be believed.

Dancevic did get perilously close to the net on what he thought was match point. He did the Dancevic dance to try to avoid touching it, but it went on for an eternity, and it's hard to say whether he was successful or not.

The important thing was that the chair umpire didn't think he was; a pretty gutsy call by the guy on a match point, so he must have been pretty sure.

Bohli didn't know what happened. He thought the match was over.

Even afterwards, in his on-court interview, he really didn't know what went on. The interviewer had to tell him.

Once he realized it wasn't, he had to go back to his chair and get another racquet, since he snapped the one he had been playing with in disgust at that point (he had blown three match points at that point).

It clocked in at about three hours.

Dancevic did a serious number on his racquet afterwards; it was so loud, you could actually see Bohli flinch, as if a gun had gone off.

Meanwhile, Marc Gicquel won the other semifinal 6-1, 6-2 in about an hour.

Given Bohli had some cramping issues in his calf and leg late today, we're thinking the final will also probably last about that long.

For Dancevic, who will probably be sore for a week, it certainly has been an encouraging 10 days in France.

We don't remember ever seeing him pour it out like that, for so long. He was running on fumes for probably the last hour (they both were).

The only thing missing to get the win, really, was a big serve on a match point, which he wasn't able to come up with.

Re: Frank Dancevic

he was plain and simple robbed of that match, he didn't touch the net before the ball bounced twice, I think it was pretty clear from watching the stream, but I guess every umpire has to try and make his own name in this sport

Re: Frank Dancevic

Yeah I was watching the live stream as well, and it was definitely a sketchy call, certainly seemed like Frank got robbed of a win

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank can't even seem to win them when he does. That umpire needs to get fired.

Hopefully the only positive to come out of this will be that he'll be fresher for Orleans this week and win a few more matches. Guez is certainly beatable, but Brown should be a stiff challenge in round 2 with his serve indoors.
