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).
, 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.
