He burst onto the Canadian tennis scene a decade ago and Canadian tennis fans had high hopes for Frank. Upon checking out his talent live back then here in Calgary, I was struck by his raw talent and charisma. However; inconsistency has plagued his play. His results haven’t measured up to expectations but he has not given up. For those lower ranked players keen to keep their players card and gaining a spot in the draw, it oftentimes means qualifying rounds. This is what we don’t hear much about. These are those matches played in the outback of the resort grounds sometimes at odd hours and periodically with wonderment whether the dream will be whisked away.
Two new rising Canadian stars have bumped Frank from the dialogue of Canadian tennis, but i see he has not only made it through three rounds of qualifying at this year’s U.S. Open, but he won his first round match in the main draw today and now meets a wiley veteran in Tommy Robredo.
Something Good is Gonna Happen Frank! Keep it up!
