That's GSM on any hope of getting back to the top 100. Already mentally fragile, I can't see him ever coming back after this. Far far worse than the Davis Cup choke.

Mello had never won on grass before. Bottom line - pathetic. Frank will be playing GS qualies the rest of his career

not never (he's won in qualifying ), but Mello has lost to Volandri on grass, so still a horrible result for Frank

Default Re: Frank Dancevic

I was at the match today and cheered Frank on throughout the match.

Ive been supporting him for years now and to say its been frustrating is a understatement.

I watched him v Koubek a few years ago at Wimbledon and he dominated him, served big and had some decent groundstrokes to match.

Today though he just diddnt turn up. First two sets he played alright, enough at least to beat a player of Mello's stature on grass. Then being 0-40 up at I think it was 4-4 I was getting ready to go.

Then the two match points and then he'd just gone. Final set his head was gone and he just looked so deflated and played awfully.

Whole match his serving was fairly poor and he never went for any groundstrokes. His net play was average at bestand everything he did seemed half hearted and never like he fully believed in his shots.

After the match he stood on his racket and snapped it in half before storming off. Cant say I blame him, really got me down, to watch a 5 setter end like that and to gain horrible sun burn at the same time was never good!

Its not too late for Frank but its almost too late. I disagree with the comments above about how he should take some time off and get his head right. He needs to play tennis. Recently he's been injured a lot and his ranking right now is around 160, he HAS to improve that. A few challenger QF/SFs and the odd win in a main draw and he'll be back toward the top 100.

Id fire his coach, get a new look and a new attitude. Right now its not working, this guy has beaten Nalbandian on grass on a show court then lost to Mello. I remember right after he beat Nalbandian he then lost to Bobby Reynolds in the 2nd round. Same again in Roland Garros, he fantastically qualifies then chokes in round 1.

Get a new coach and hopefully that might give him a new outlook, as a fan its painful to follow/watch. He needs to play more tennis while he's still young and injury free.

I left the computer around 12:45 and he had just lost the third set and I was like...no big deal, I come back and he had lost in 5. I was like WTF happened, I thought this was his best surface?

interesting that Frank has withdrawn from Newport but isn't playing Davis Cup either.

Dancevic is such a bum. He used to be my favorite Canuck.
My favorite Canucks in the following order.
1. Nestor
1.5 Raonic
2. Vasek
3. Shamisdin
4. Polansky
5. PLD
6. Bester
7. Dancevic
