Dancevic: Pushing into the Big Leagues
When he strides out onto centre court tonight for his quarterfinal appointment with Rafa Nadal, Frank Dancevic will have the weighty hopes of Canada resting on his fluffy dome of curly brown hair. It's been something of a dry spell for the Canucks; the last time a countryman reached the quarters at the Rogers tournament was 1989 (back in the days when players still wore short shorts.) Whether (or more likely not) this rising Northern Star can withstand the barrage of guile and moxie that is Nadal, the maple leaf posse will surely be out in full flag-waving glory.
