Spanish captain Alex Corretja praises the colorful game of No. 166-ranked Canadian Frank Dancevic, who stunned No. 34 Marcel Granollers in the second match of their Davis Cup tie, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.

“He was just playing like he was playing with closed eyes,” Corretja told Tennis Canada. “Everything he hit went in. Everything went perfect. He never faced any trouble on the road. We couldn’t think of a way to damage him. He was amazing. It’s also surprising that he is not a better player on the tour. That would be great for tennis because his game is beautiful to watch -- even if it was painful for us.”

Dancevic agreed that he was in the zone.

“I hit five or six big shots in a row and I can’t remember the last time I did that. I remember hitting a few flashy shots here and there,” he said. “But the amount of shots, good quality shots that I was hitting, especially on the return over and over again. I felt pretty good about myself to do that today.”
