Tough draw for Frank, went down to Wawa in three sets. It was an awfully long way to go for one match, and he likely would have been better off staying in America to play a few hardcourt events but I hope the experience has made it worth it for him.
Frank has been drawn to face Almagro in the 1st round at the US Open.
Almagro does have the ability to do well on hard courts, but has underachieved on the surface so far during his career. Hopefully that will continue here .
Another first round loss, unfortunately (that's 6 out of the 10 tournaments he's played this year). Tough draw again but this season has been nothing short of a disaster after the momentum he built up last summer. I realize injuries have been a major factor but disappointing nonetheless.
Anyone know what his plans are for the fall? I hope he enters qualifying for the masters series events and can win a few matches, get his ranking up a bit before 2009.
A bit of interesting news, Frank has decided to head back to the challenger circuit and will be playing in Tulsa this week, he's the 6th seed.
On the one hand I hope he gets his ranking up and gets some confidence back... on the other hand, this is a player with wins over Roddick, Nalbandian, and Ancic within the last year - clearly he has the talent to be a full-time tour player.
