Didn't realise the other Slovene Žemlja didn't have his own thread. He deserved one before and soon he will be highest ranked Slovenian male. He is having his best year winning 3 Challengers, getting a wildcard to Wimbledon as well.
First man from Slovenia to make the 3rd round of a Slam at the US Open after coming through qualies.
I like how he turned his results around after not passing round 2 of any tournament in the first half of the year. He's got a great chance to get inside the top 50 in the next 8 months, only defending 2 challengers finals.
Slovenia's Grega Zemlja celebrates after winning his game against Germany's Tommy Haas during their quarter final match as part of the Vienna ATP 250 tennis tournament, on October 19, 2012. Zemlja won 6-4, 4-6, 6-2
Grega starting the season in Doha against the Fog.

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.

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.

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.
