US Open: Dancevic eliminated.
The first round opponent was solid, Frank Dancevic gave everything he had, but fell just short as he lost to Marat Safin in three very disputed sets of 7-5, 7-6 and 7-6.
The match was of high quality for a first round matchup. Safin's experience and solid serving was just enough to beat the young canadian tennismen. Dancevic can be happy of what he accomplished this summer as he has increased his ATP tour ranking significally.
With the experience gained participating in the later rounds of important tournaments this summer, the 2008 season could be a breakout season for Dancevic.
The US Open continues tomorrow with 2nd round matches.
