Trupej also coached a bunch of other players since Matevzic's retirement and achieved nothing. Most of the players even regressed.(most notably Zec-Peskiric
AJ - you think Zemlja's more talented? He's got more power on serve and groundstrokes, but other than that they're pretty even talent-wise. Yet, I'd have never predicted Kavcic to have a better ranking and more success on the tour.
I don't rate Trupej from what I saw, if he proves me wrong then good. I don't think he's any better than Lenar.
Yes, I think Grega has more natural ability than Blaz, but as much as I like Grega he's a bit soft mentally. He does have some Giraldo like footwork, if Blaz had some of Grega's talent he'd be top 50. Then again if Zemljak had Blaz's work ethic and desire, then he'd be top 100.
He plays Istomin in Karshi final.
