Maybe Sarajevo will be his last - he's still signed up.

I wouldn't say its impossible - other players have dropped into the 300's and made a run back to the top 100 in their 30's. I see two issues though - 1) Frank really never firmly established himself in the top 100 in his career besides that great run in 2007; and 2) the last few times I saw him play he didn't seem to be in peak physical shape. Hope I'm wrong - but he'll have a ton of points post US Open to defend after going on that Futures run last Fall, so he better make a move quickly. At this stage he's still a ways off from GS qualies too.

Emeraldhands Frank seems to be struggling even at futures level now. Hope it's not the beginning of the end but he is closing in on 32 now.

Not quite as bad as it may seem. Mesaros was ranked as high as the 140s just two years ago and likes clay the best, but still. I thought taking the set off Tsonga might give him a boost.

I'm curious why he chose this route.
Needs points. And his Challenger record in recent months/years isn't that great with one or two exceptions. Probably searching for some confidence too.

Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank playing a 10k futures in Hungary this week - not sure where he thought he'd be at this stage of his career. Hopefully he grinds away - GS qualies are a long shot at this point, and there are plenty of plus 30 year old guys doing just fine on the tour. Too much talent not to play at a decent level again before he retires
