Kukushkin knocks Canadian Dancevic out of Rogers Cup with 6-3, 7-5 1st round win

TORONTO - Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., is out of the Rogers Cup after losing to Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3, 7-5, in a first-round match on Tuesday.

Kukushkin, ranked 69th in the world, will play Richard Gasquet of France in the next round.

The 24-year-old from Kazakhstan played a solid game and broke Dancevic's serve to go ahead 6-5 in the second set and put the game away on his own serve.

The 27-year-old Dancevic is ranked 123rd in the world but has been ranked as high as 65th.

He reached the Rogers Cup quarterfinals in 2007.
