Yeah any info would be great.

Lets hope for more main tour events and less Challengers in 2009.

Update on Frank Dancevic

By smyles62 12-31-2008 COMMENTS(0) Open Court

Canada's best male player, who struggled in 2008 after having a breakthrough into the top 70 in 2007, has prepared hard as he tries to get things back on track in 2009.

He was at the Saddlebrook resort in Tampa, Fla. for two weeks with new coach Leo Lavalle, a Mexican former top-50 player, spending 3-4 hours on the court and a couple more hours in the gym every day.

He left for Australia Sunday, and given his lowered ranking, will have to do a lot of qualifying if he wants to play in the top events – and that includes the Brisbane event next week, and the Australian Open qualies.

Dancevic also has changed racquets. He was playing with what looked like a Volkl; now, he has switched to a Wilson KBlade H22; we're told it's a custom model not available retail, and that Dancevic has upped his power level and aggressiveness with it.

(It's also supposedly the model being used by Novak Djokovic. But rumour has it that Djoko has jumped ship back to Head, which is what he used earlier in his career before biting at the Wilson Euros (then again, there are also rumours that Djoko never changed racquets at all, kept playing with the Head painted to look like a Wilson KBlade, but we digress).

In Saddlebrook, where several of the American players have a base, Dancevic played sets with James Blake (beat him), Mardy Fish (split sets) and the Austrian Jurgen Melzer (was driven crazy by the funky lefty).

Dancevic hit the Challenger circuit last fall to try to get his ranking up high enough that he could get straight into the Australian Open. But it didn't happen; his results were fairly disappointing even if he was able to bump up from No. 150 to No. 130.

All is well, health and attitude-wise. Let's see what 2009 brings.

Frank's attempt to qualify for Brisbane starts later tonight against Sam Groth of Australia. Frank has a fairly tough qualy draw, with the #1 seed, Gabashvili potentially waiting in the next round. Still, I think Frank has a decent chance to make it to the main draw

Good luck to Frank in Brisbane and all this year

I'd say that is a promising start to '09.

Next up, Korolev (106).
Are you sure of this? The Brisbane livescore has the Groth match going on right now, with it on serve in the first, 3-3. Either ATP or this result is wrong.

Frank gets a much better start in Sydney qualies, he beat Grega Zemlja 6:0 6:2, he was to face the winner of Benneteau-Korolev, but it appears Benneteau is in the main draw or pulled out, and Korolev is playing Golubev. Not sure who Frank will face next

But a very good win, hopefully it will restart his season the right way

Frank beat Korolev 6-3 6-2 while serving 7 aces and only losing 2 service points

He'll play Alberto Martin or alternate Sadik Kadir in the last round of qualifying
