Looks like Frank dropped his coach Leo Lavalle and went back to Martin Laurendeau, his previous coach and Canadian Davis Cup captain.

Interesting!! Couldn't hurt, he's barely won a match since hooking up with the new coach.

Default Re: Frank Dancevic

Frank hasn't won a match since Miami, but has moved to the verge of re-entering the top 100, which seems a little strange

Anyone know why he's taken such a long break, is he injured?

Anyways, I noticed that Frank is only a few spots from earning direct entry to RG. He needs 9 more withdrawals, and there are at least 7 or 8 players that are already out, or are questionable. So we should cheer for injuries to get Frank in

Default Re: Frank Dancevic

His ranking hasn't moved because last spring he was out with a back injury and so has no points to defend.

I don't think he's playing these weeks because all the Challengers are in Europe on red clay, which isn't his best surface obviously. I imagine it would be expensive to go to Europe and play all those events, considering he probably wouldn't be winning much prize money. But I'm just guessing!

Bring on the grass, let's hope he can turn his year around at Surbiton.

Not bothering to play on clay makes sense, I just hope that that's all it is, with so many points to defend over the next couple of months.

And good news about Wimby MD

Also, I found this youtube video of Frank's win over Ancic, hopefully we'll see this kind of play again over the next few months

In a shocking turn of events, Frank lost in the first round of RG qualifying. Straight sets. Imagine that, Frank losing a match!

Frank is back in action this week, playing on grass in Nottingham

He's got Giovanni Lapentti in the first round.

He needs some results in the grass season. He has the Surbiton victory and Newport final to defend, which constitute the bulk of his ranking points. If he doesn't pick up his play soon he'll probably fall out of the top 150/200.

Yeah, if he were to get no points from the grass season, he'd end up outside the top 200 Now, I don't think that'll happen, but there's still a lot at stake.

Frank will also have a tough choice coming up, as I'm pretty sure Canada's DC tie in Peru will be the same week as Newport Either way he's making a sacrifice, but given that Laurendeau is apparently coaching him, it'd be strange to see him not play the tie. It'd obviously be better for him personally to try and defend his points though
