While the U.S. Open ended on Sunday, the World Championships of Tennis – known as The Davis Cup – is on! And Team Canada is back to defend their championship title after winning last year’s tournament.
On this episode of The Unlimited Podcast, Brian speaks with Frank Dancevic, former professional tennis player and current Captain of Canada’s Davis Cup team.
We were lucky to catch Frank just hours before he joined his team in Bologna, Italy for the start of Canada’s defending run.
Hailing from Niagara Falls, Ontario, Frank Dancevic is a retired Canadian professional tennis player. He first became the country’s top singles player, according to ATP rankings, on February 10, 2003, as an 18-year-old, and achieved a career-high singles ranking of world No. 65 in September 2007. He has been the captain of Canada’s Davis Cup team since 2017 and continues to lead top-ranked Canadian tennis players Felix Auger-Aliassime, Vasek Pospisil, and Denis Shapovalov, among others, in this year’s Davis Cup.
In this episode, Brian speaks with Frank about his experience as a professional tennis player, what it takes to be a world-class athlete, and how to lead and coach high performers.
