Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

He lost 6-1 2-6 4-6 to Crivoi. Looks like the Davis Cup Group 1 tie against South Africa in Johannesburg will be his next match. If they can get past South Africa it will be the first time the Slovenian team has made the World Group playoff stage. The South African team will be without Anderson.

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

After some tough weeks Blaž is back in the winning circle with the title in Sao Paulo over Julio Silva. He beat some good challenger players.

Going to be jetlagged big time when he hits Belgrade.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Funny video of Blaz canoeing and taking a long, long time to jump off a bridge. I can't understand Slovenian but the videos on his Youtube channel are hilarious. He seems like a cool guy.

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

Blaž had to withdraw from his semi final against Montanes. He played a lot and is very tired need to rest the body.

Will be at a career high at the end of this week, but there is still a lot of work to do.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

Blaž somehow got a wildcard to London Olympics and he can't believe it either.

From the man himself.

Can you believe that?! Just arriving home after Wimbledon, saying OK, enough grass for one year... and then someone calls me to let me know that I received a WC for Olympics!?!? Crazy world, you never know what is gonna happen in the next moment

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

So who will he play, then? Kohli is out.

Someone like JC Cabal. It could be a winnable match.

He plays Vardhan who like most Indian players enjoys playing on grass.

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

He played really well today and it was a fun match to watch. After it, I congratulated him on his win and took his picture which I will post on here when I get back home. He seems like a really nice guy and was on cloud 9 after his win. I know it's unlikely he will beat Ferrer tomorrow but today's match was a good experience for him. He was really pumped up and I've rarely seen anyone so happy after a match point. I've got tickets for Court1 tomorrow so I'll get to see him playa gain.
