I love tennis
Aljaž started with the first tennis steps at the age of six in his living room. With his twin brother Andraž, they build their own tennis court out of daddys briefcase and some other stuff. For the requets they used picnic raquets and stufed ball. As a kid Aljaž was not only attracted to tennis but also to the ski jumping, but finally decided for tennis. They said he decided correctly, because it was a shame to lose such fast legs for ski jumping. On his current path he played for several clubs including Šport plus, TK Kolektor and today he is a member of TD Slovan.
Aljaž’s tennis idol is, because of his forehand, Fernando Gonzales. But othervise he admires other players qualities like Roger’s perfect slice, Rafa’s relentnessnest and Novak’s balkan stubbornness.
Aljaž played on his first ATP tournament in the 2011 in the 2011 Erste Bank Open in Vienna. This year he lost in second round, but managed to get to the quarter-final the next year.
In 2012 he won 4 Chalenger tournaments and got firmly in to the top 100, but his biggest results on the ATP tour came in 2013. This year he also reached ranking 71, his highes ranking so far. His biggest result so far was semi-final at the ATP tuornament in Chenai, India.
