Bedene Brothers (SLO) - Aljaž and Andraž

It's nice to see how Slovenian tennis is developing in recent years. There are 14 Slovenian players ranked this week (3 of them are top200). Kavcic, Gregorc, Zemlja and Tkalec are well known for those who follow the Challengers circuit, while Semrajc is a quite solid player of the Futures circuit. The players who are in their first steps as pro we can keep an eye on them are Gollubovic and the Bedene brothers, especially Aljaz Bedene (his brother is named Andraz).

Aljaz Bedene, born in 1989, is now ranked 848 - his points of an Austrian futures final will be computed only in next ranking, so he will have a jump soon. Until this year, his record was 1-2 in main draws. Now his career record is 21-14. Reached 2 finals this year, Austria F5 and Slovenia F2, and one semifinal, in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Went through qualies in a lot of tournaments but soon I guess he won't need to play qualies for futures tournaments. Had a career high combined ranking as junior of 31.

His twin brother, Andraz, made his début as pro this year, has now a 2-6 carrer record and successfully qualified in 5 tournaments to main draw. Lost a match to his brother in Austria F5 2nd round, 6-3 7-5.

Re: Bedene Brothers (SLO) - Aljaž and Andraž

Bedene brothers playing in Slovakia F1 this week.

Aljaz won his first round match, by defeating countryman Zoran Golubovic 6-4 6-1. He is ranked #707 this week and faces seed Andrej Martin in next round (Andrej is his doubles partner). He can get revenge of Austria F6 semifinal.

Andraz plays his first round match against Austrian Patrick Telawetz.

Re: Bedene Brothers (SLO) - Aljaž and Andraž

Great to see threads regarding Slovene tennis players. Good luck to both of them, I'm just surprised they're not playing doubles together. Even as juniors they rarely played together. Quite odd actually, one would expect twins to be inseperable but this is obviously not the case with Bedene brothers, even though they travel and play at the same tournaments

Yes, it seems odd they don't play doubles together, I don't know why they opted for playing splitted, maybe they think they spent too much time together and playing with others players would add more to their games.

Re: Bedene Brothers (SLO) - Aljaž and Andraž

Andraz won his first round match, 6-4 6-1, faces next round Jan stancik, seed#7 but not active lately, so i think he has good chances of reaching quarterfinals.

Aljaz and Andrej lost in doubles to the dangerous Slovak pair Pazicky/Sikora in a close match, 4-6 7-5 11-13. Andraz is not playing doubles in Stupava.

Re: Bedene Brothers (SLO) - Aljaž and Andraž

Slovakia F1

2nd Round

Marek MICHALICKA (CZE) defeated Bertram STEINBERGER (AUT) 6-2 7-6(5)
Jiri SKOLOUDIK (CZE) (6) defeated Michal MACKO (SVK) 6-4 7-6(2)
Michael LINZER (AUT) defeated Grzegorz PANFIL (POL) (4) 6-0 6-4
Michal PAZICKY (SVK) defeated Andrew GREGORY (AUS) 6-2 6-1
Andraz BEDENE (SLO) defeated Jan STANCIK (SVK) (7) 6-1 6-1
Martin KLIZAN (SVK) (3) defeated Zalan KLEMPA (SVK) 6-2 3-6 6-2
Aljaz BEDENE (SLO) defeated Andrej MARTIN (SVK) (5) 6-4 6-3
Peter MIKLUSICAK (SVK) defeated Martin FAFL (CZE) 6-2 6-2

Quarterfinal

Marek MICHALICKA (CZE) Vs Jiri SKOLOUDIK (CZE) (6)
Michael LINZER (AUT) Vs Michal PAZICKY (SVK)
Andraz BEDENE (SLO) Vs Martin KLIZAN (SVK) (3)
Aljaz BEDENE (SLO) Vs Peter MIKLUSICAK (SVK)




Aljaz should win his next match, Andraz's task is much more difficult, but then Klizan had troubles in his match today while Andraz was impressive.

Re: Bedene Brothers (SLO) - Aljaž and Andraž

Slovakia F1 - Stupava - Quarterfinal

Jiri SKOLOUDIK (CZE) (6) defeated Marek MICHALICKA (CZE) 6-1 6-4
Michael LINZER (AUT) defeated Michal PAZICKY (SVK) 7-5 4-6 6-3
Martin KLIZAN (SVK) (3) defeated Andraz BEDENE (SLO) 6-0 6-1
Aljaz BEDENE (SLO) defeated Peter MIKLUSICAK (SVK) 6-1 6-2

another semifinal for Aljaz, but a tough one (anyway, he was lucky Semjan withdrew, he could have faced Marek in QF).
Klizan back to his best, it seems.

Werner Eschauer is their trainer. That's what Aljaz said in an interview a few days ago

Re: Bedene Brothers (SLO) - Aljaž and Andraž

Aljaz ranked 520 this week, plays tomorrow the final of Austria F9. Last week he skipped Austrian future probably because he was tired (won two futures in previous weeks). In the last three tournaments he partnered his brother in doubles Aljaz is also building his ranking in singles.

Aljaz deserves a WC for Ljubliana Challenger.
