I have seen him yesterday live for the first time, to be honest I did not know him, but he convinced me most of all the qualifiers yesterday, sound technique and good attitude on court. He backed it up with a win today, but Karlovic will be tough.

Aljaz lost 6/4 4/6 1/6 to Haas. Had a few opportunities midway through the second set to take a stranglehold on the match but he could not do it. The stats seem to indicate Haas had no troubles taking care of his second serve in the second and third sets.
Aljaz has made ıt to the Quarters of the Loughbororugh Challenger after a 6-3 6-1 wın over Ivo Klec and then a 7-6 6-1 wın over Dan Evans. In a strange bıt of schedulıng none of Aljaz`s potentıal second round opponents have even played theır fırst round matches yet.
Aljaz has won his first round qualifying match in Melbourne at the Australian Open and today faces number seven seed from Slovakia Lukas Lacko. Ajaz seems to have lots of support in Australia and I see him as a good chance against Lukas. Good luck to Aljaz and all his Australian fans.
Aljaz is into the final of the 30k Casablanca Challenger on the red dirt where he is the favourite to take the title. He plays Nico Devilder in the final. Along the way he beat Olaso 6-2 6-1, Menendez-Maceiras 7-5 6-3, Middelkoop 6-3 6-3 and then Andrey Kuznetsov 6-3 6-4.
