Vasek Pospisil hires Frank Dancevic as new coach

Canadian tennis player Vasek Pospisil has announced former world No. 65 Frank Dancevic as his new coach. Pospisil and Canadian Davis Cup Team Captain Dancevic will be working together at least for the rest of this season. Pospisil, a former world No.

25, recently kicked off his 2019 season as he made his long-awaited return from a back injury at Wimbledon. Since then, the 29-year-old has played only two tournaments. Pospisil performed well against world No. 22 Felix Auger-Aliassime in his first match in eight months but the teenage sensation claimed a 5-7 6-2 6-4 6-3 win.

However, the Canadian claimed his first win of the season at the Granby Challenger at the end of last month. Pospisil handed a straight-set defeat to Joshua Peck in his Granby opener before losing to Ernesto Escobedo in the round-of-16.

Pospisil is now set to play his third tournament of the season at the Montreal Masters after being granted a wildcard into the event. The 29-year-old hasn't been lucky with his draw as he will be clashing against Auger-Aliassime in his Montreal opener. It remains to be seen will the addition of Dancevic help Pospisil in his bid to make a successful comeback to tennis.
