Something tells me Aljaz has every right to be completely hacked off with the ITF.

For a one line explanation, Croatian Alja Tomljanovic has been allowed to swap to Australia and represent them in the Fed Cup, because here Aussie passport application was made before the rule change in 2015. Aljaz was denied the right to play for GB despite being in the same position.


Double standards or what?  disbelief

Amazing win for Ali Bedene today over Sinner, 7-6(3) in the third set, and with Bedene being the rank outsider

I know he's no longer a Brit but thought it was worth mentioning for those interested that Aljaz (who plays Novak today) is retiring at the end of the year to become a football agent, according to twitter/press - twitter.com/AdamAddicott/status/1530137291968086016

 seemed like Aljaz has a good point in general (fognini is an arse) but it was a fairly mild mannered discussion really - not sure the umpire separating them was as exciting as the twitter person suggests!!!

 Yes, I agree, I thought the 'two minutes' discussion was hardly a bust-up biggrin

But it was a quiet 'tennis' new day.....smile
