Beijing CH F : Žemlja def. Wu 6-3 6-0 (3 Slovenians in the top 100 first time ever)

Easy win for Žemlja but more importantly now Slovenia has 3 guys in the top 100. Not bad for a small nation where tennis isn't even close to the main sport. Just makes it even worse that the federation couldn't organise the challenger in Ljubljana this year.

Kavcic, Bedene and Zemlja.

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".

Well Mateya should be proud of her Slovenian men in the top 100.

Shame Di Wu got bageled in the final, but even making there was an achievement for the Chinese.

Vulturing weak tournaments in Asia to get to top 100... You can be proud of him.

Boohoo. He's still good enough to kick Berankis' ass time and time again.

Li-Ning must be happy with their investment.

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".

They were inspired by Troicki.

That should be the mantra for players all round the world.

Kavcic, Bedene and Zemlja.
If he had not gotten hurt, Bedene might have won that Tournament. So Slovenia is doing well

Grega! Amazing result for Slovenian mens tennis!! At moment much better as womens tennis (3 mens : 1 woman in TOP 100).

Blaž Kavčič - Grega Žemlja - Aljaž Bedene - Luka Gregorc - Janez Semrajc - Andraž Bedene


Nieminen - Verdasco - Blake - Nadal - The Bryans

If I were you, I wouldn't be so sure about that, when these two meet next time, buddy.

It's good to have players like Zemlja's calibre, it's an opportunity for the chinese players to learn and guage where their game stands outside of China.
Zemlja played well and congrats to him on winning the title.
Even though it's disappointing Wu Di lost badly in the 2nd set, a finalist in an ATP challenger is good news

Bagel? That's rather delusional. He's won 1 out of 9 sets played against Zemlja, so he really needs to focus on winning a set against him, then a match and then we can talk about bagels.
