Did he save a match point in his R1 match?

Playing the weaker challengers. Maybe he is sponsored by Li Ning.

Wuhan must have been a good confidence boost for his game on hard though.

Bedene is Slovenian and Zemlja who is also doing the Chinese circuit is sponsored by Li Ning. They'd have got some good money for them to play these events.

The rest of the events are on hardcourt. Li Ning probably made a good deal and the Croats went for it.

Stat, there are clay events coming up.

Yeah. He hasn't played much on hard so to win a Challenger title is impressive.

I know they're slovenian, I actually wanted to ask this for a long time ever since Ljubicic and Cilic both started wearing Li-Ning, and I think I saw some of their athletes during the Opening Ceremony in Li-Ning as well.

When I said time for the tour, I meant ATP tour. The next ATP clay event is in February as far as I know.

He will still play clay challengers and pick his time to go on the main tour. Next year he will be on the main tour. Still has a lot of work to go before he wins on the main tour.

good for Aljaž; if Žemlja gets some wins under his belt this year, we could have 3 direct entries at AO '13 :eek:
