My visit with Harry

Yesterday, Ryan Harrison beat Canada's Frank Dancevic in a tense three-set encounter at the Winnetka Challenger, and then took some time to talk about the match. He also talked a bit about the work he's been doing with a sports psychologist, his 2012 Olympics experience at Wimbledon (in which he was frankly brutalized in an interview with Pat O'Brien), and where he feels his tennis game and frame of mind are. Because he's such a thoughtful and articulate guy, I thought I'd go ahead and post the entire audio.

As for the match, it was generally very high quality, with Dancevic coming up with impressive serves, volleys, and groundstrokes in big moments throughout. Unfortunately for him, he had a couple of crucial mistakes - including a double fault on the first break point he faced, which cost him the second set - and Harrison stayed mentally tough enough to win it.

If you haven't yet done so, I encourage you to watch the entire match, which I've posted below.
