Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

Excellent start to the comeback defeating Bagnis 6-2 6-1 plays either Collarini or Migani in the next round.

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".

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

Lost in the semis to Zeballos 5-7 6-3 6-2 in Sao Leopoldo. Zeballos was pretty aggressive and Blaz finally got some matches in though he had an injury timeout on his back at 0-1* in the 3rd set.

Off to Marbella and then there'll be history with 3 Slovenes into the Aus Open directly. Trupej really hasn't done anything to improve Blaz since they've been together.

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 and Aljaž Bedene on a Slovenian show talking about 3 men in the top 100 for Slovenia. Since I speak crap Slovenian, translation of the good parts would be fantastic.

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

Zemlja spoke about his good work with the trainers needs to keep working hard.

Blaz talking about the issues he has had with his back preparing to go to Chennai, Melbourne. Play a mix of Challengers and ATP, but most importantly wants to get over the injuries.

Bedene came back too soon from the appendicitis surgery, didn't have enough time for fitness preparation, plus having some issues with the wrist as well.

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

It's good that Blaz got back into the top100 and qualified for AO. Hopefully he can build on that in the new year.

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

Probably the funniest thing in that video comes right at the start.

"Anze Baselj
Hairstyle done by Mic Styling"

I'll watch that video once I have some time and translate the more important parts.

Bedene does spend plenty of time on his hair.

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

I watched that, the interview itself was a bit of a bore so nothing new to say.

Kavcic
- talked about having to play tournaments in obscure places because losses on the ATP level can damage your confidence and he needs to boost himself up by winning weaker tournaments(talked about having to wash himself with a bucket in Uzbekistan)
- said that he won most of the matches against Zemlja in the U-14 category but started losing once they got to the professional level (the host avoided mocking them for never having beaten Zemlja in their matches)
- said that they used to make fun of Zemlja in juniors because he hated getting up in the morning and he kept coming to early matches sleepy and grumpy.
- Kavcic and Zemlja are playing 2 exhibitions in Slovenia these days.
- believes he's had luck picking the right coaches
- travelling to Australia with him will be Petra who won the ballot of one of Blaz's sponsors.

Bedene
- talked about his twin brother Andraz who retired this year, but will be travelling with Aljaz as his sparing partner. They used to be very close game wise but Andraz never broke out.
- said about the traumatic experience in Brazil when there was an explosion in their hotel and he could've died had he not been outside.

They both also mentioned that they're starting the season in Chennai. The rest was pretty much what you've already mentioned.

Thanks for the translation and not a surprise with Zemlja he always looks asleep.

Re: Blaž Kavčič Thread

Blaž got Bautista-Agut in the 1st round, should be very hard fought match and the winner plays Lu or Bachinger.

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

Losing like this is tough to take. No excuse to not win that first set having served for it, but it's same old Blaž, I guess?
