Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

Qualifies for Vienna and beats Malisse in the 1st 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: Grega Žemlja Thread

He is in the final first ever win over a top 10 player in Tipsarevic who was being a dick as per usual.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

I couldn't stop smiling throughout that final set. Even more so when Tipsarevic's faking an injury eventually turned out to be in vain.

Simply outstanding week for him.

Grega!

So happy for him and for Slovenia. Their players are all so likeable.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

Just realised he celebrates his birthday one day before me!

Great to see him in the final and fulfilling his potential.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

Such a shame he gave away that break in the first set that easily, would've been great for his confidence to at least take a set in the final.

Now don't suck in those few challengers left this year.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

Then it would be Gasquet in the next round. It's a tough proposition, but it's all about the time on court now. The key months for Grega will be February and March.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

Grega beat Fognini 62 36 64. Should've won in 2, he was dominating until 62 *21. Serving stats were bad, he'll need to play much better against Gasquet to have a chance.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

He gave it his best crack but couldn't stomach serving for the match, unfortunately. Great serving, however. Nearly twenty aces is impressive, even in a long three-set match.

Next week he's playing Auckland, and he's once again right down at the bottom of the draw. First up he'll play Falla and then if he wins it, he'll meet Kohlschreiber. It's a tough ask, but I hope he goes deep here.

Zemlja getting better from the illness hope he can do well this weekend in DC.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

Zemlja is having some sort of lung anomaly and will be skipping IW and very likely Miami, too.

Very unfortunate, considering how he has no points to defend this time of the season and then a ton in the second half.

Re: Grega Žemlja Thread

Grega thumped Giraldo 6-1 6-4 6-1, excellent stats but who knows how the match went without it being seen.

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