Frank Dancevic has been named the next BIG thing in canadian tennis. We hope he can make top 100/50 in the future. He needs to hold down the nerves as he was up against davydenko in tennis masters montreal!
I first saw Frank play the final of the Granby challenger this year and he is really talented, I think. His major weaknesses, typical of young players, are his shot selection and ability to maintain composure on big points. He has a very nice, fluid service motion and an effective return--more ability from the baseline than any other canadian player.
It's great to see him win a big match like this. I can't wait until he qualifies for his first major.
good point Jexy....
i'll make this thread a part of my "daily rounds" :lol:
Davis Cup is coming up this weekend. Canada plays Romania on clay.
These are the teams:
Canada: larose, dancevic, niemeyer and nestor
Romania: hanescu, pavel, mergea and ionita....
Cool Cannuck_chick ... at first it may be just me and you... but if we keep the conversation going, other people will come too.
Canada shouldnt have a problem defeating Romania. GO CANADA! Altho I heared good things about Pavel.
You know what? When Master Series was in toronto, i managed to accidentally offend Niemayer *blush*. I was looking for pimpim ( to take a photo), and my friend was sitting with me on a bench where the entrence to restricted area was right by the stadium. So she didnt know who pimpim was, and all she knew was tall and blond,... and then Niemayer waked by... like right by our bench.. so my friend says " is it him?" (meaning pim) and I looked niemayer up and down and said really loud ( mostly cause I'm deaf so I talk louder)..... I said "no! he's too old!"... and then niemayer looked at me like...." I'm too old " LOL.. I felt so embaraced that he heared me. hehehe so then when he was playing in the olympics, he had a diary and I wanted to write him an appology by my assiness... (unintentional.. cause he really is older-looking then joachim.. and I didnt mean that he's a senior citizen). SORRY NIEMAYER! I didnt write it tho, cause it was already too late and Olyumpics were over and I figure he wouldnt be reading it.
hey....omg. that's a great story (even if u did offend him)....i would have been soo emberassed too !!! heheh....i wonder if he would have remembered who u were if u wrote him for that olympic diary.....
here's some more DC news:
singles will be: 1. larose vs. pavel
2. dancevic vs. hanescu
doubles: 1. nestor/niemayer vs. mergea/ionita.....
pavel is a good player but i think canada has a good chance to win this. the bad thing is that they are gonna play on clay, which isn't really the best surface for the canadians...
