It is always good to win even If you're not playing at your best, esp since you're a top player Feña! :hatoff:

Dancevic played an awesome match! :eek: :hatoff: Props to him.

Watched it on Star Sports livestream and since Feña was my favourite, it almost cost me a heart attack :eek:

He wasn't playing his best tennis and Dancevic did really well....:help:

A big relief it turned out well for Feña :clap2:

A win is a win, winning ugly is not the fair, but considering Feña didn't play since a long time is not that bad.

Dancevic played amazingly good today :yeah: but simply Frankie "don't go to Hollywood" at least for now :p

I was very entertaining to watch. To bad it had to end on a DF.

Gonzo hung tough though, it seemed like the only thing going for him was a couple missed calls and missed overrules by the ump.

Third choke of the day . First Falla , then Kohlschreiber and now Dancevic .

I'm sick of them (chokers)

Well, Get used to it, That's why some are top players and others aren't [No offense to the players though] ;)

Dancevic dominated and pulled off plenty of amazing shots; shame he missed too many easy ones which ultimately cost him the match.

That overrule at 30 all in the first game of the 3rd set was an absolute shocker. Dancevic would've had a break point at a time when he was totally on top. Impressive performance from him. It's not often you see someone hitting more winners than Gonzo. I fail to see how it consitutes a choke either but then I guess a match thread on this forum wouldn't be complete without someone throwing that in.

"Nearly Won" Dancevic rides again.

One day he may find it in him to clear that one final hurdle. He certainly does the work up until that point.

WHEW!!! That was too close :lol: Fernando must have been a bit rusty but :yeah: to Dancevic for a good match. Fernando showed he is a top 5 player now, hanging tough and finding a way to win even on off day. :) It seems to be one of the things that seperates good players from the top players IMO. Hopefully he'll be sharper for Soderling though.....

I feel sorry for Dancevic. He had some bad calls go against him. If there was hawkeye, it might have been a different result.

But :woohoo: to Fernando for pulling it out! :yeah:

Let's hope he's got the rust out from not playing all these weeks. He's lucky he didn't get Willy who just took the first set from King Fed. :lol:

Poor Frank, one day you'll get a good draw! Or actually beat a top player :tape:. He's quickly shaping up to be a really good tennis player and he's actually quite fun to watch, plays an all court game. Well done to Gonzo for digging out a win when not playing your best. He's a top player now and he needs to do things like this week in week out.

Dancevic played a horrible forehand at 6:7 in the tie-break - it was the key to this defeat.

Gonzo looked awful and was lucky to win.

I am willing to bet this is the first time you have even heard of Dancevic...

I doubt it. I have the same coverage he does and I've known of Dancevic since Toronto 2002 when I saw him lose as a wildcard to Santoro, so....
