Re: 2013 Live Commentary

I understand that you're Canadian, serve, you obviously like Dancevic a lot, and it wouldn't be untrue to say that you overrate him in this case.

You speak like this hypothetical match-up would be in Dancevic's hands, regardless of how well Almagro plays. Explain yourself?

Lol, look at Mug and Corretja under the towel. Spanish and their cheating ways.

On the real ACC'16 Final:

the player he is in this match is the same player he was in those matches, it just only comes out once or twice per year. If he was more consistent he'd easily be top 50

Frank's best tennis and Almagro's best tennis are very close. I'm assuming Almagro play his average tennis then Frank wins.

The reason Almagro is so much better ranked is because Frank does this maybe once per year. Then he becomes just plain Mug Dancevic again.

Uhh, you might want to watch the match. Dancevic's level right now would beat most guys on tour and pretty easily at that.

That player was appearing more often back then,ranking and results reflected it and do so now.

Yes, but Almagro wouldn't be so tactically naive to allow Dancevic to play this well. Granollers has been the architect of his own downfall in this contest, just feeding Dancevic chance after chance after chance, and not really trying to stifle the rhythm of the match, which would play into Spain's hands more.

true, but what I mean is his top level is the same. The way he's playing now and the way he played when he beat all those players is pretty much the same

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Oh and this level is nothing we haven't seen before with Dancevic. He just rarely shows it...especially not for entire matches.

Roddick win was good, fair play. He beat baby Del Potro, hardly a big scalp. He beat Verdasco before he boomed, Nalbandian in the first round at Wimbledon which isn't so hard. Is beating Kohlschreiber really that impressive? Yes, lots of players take sets off the top guys occasionally.

Fact is, over a ten year career like Dancevic's, if he was really capable of this god-like tennis that you claim he is, he would have beaten better players than you've mentioned. I just don't see it.
