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.

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.

The Republic of China is proud of Wu's efforts in this extraordinary sport's event.

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.

They were inspired by Troicki.

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

If he had not gotten hurt, Bedene might have won that Tournament. So Slovenia is doing well :D

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

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 :D

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.

:woohoo: :cheerleader:

This and Muzza golden medal made my weekend perfect. :D

I'm not sure how long these three will last in top100. But let's enjoy it while it lasts...
Bedene could reach top 60 one day :rocker2:

it's great that we have 3 players inside top100 (at one stage there were 3 female players inside top50); sadly none of them is really top50 material if they start to play ATP alone but mixing challangers and some second rounds here and there might keep them inside top100

Bedene will be top-50 in time.

based on challangers; if he plays ATP only in 2013 ... not so sure about it
