Dec 16, 2017-

British No 2 Aljaz Bedene said on Friday he intends to represent his native Slovenia so he can compete in the Davis Cup and the Olympics. The 28-year-old, who lives in London, became a British citizen in March 2015 and among British players the world number 49 is only behind Andy Murray in the ATP rankings. He fought an unsuccessful battle to be eligible for Britain in the Davis Cup and he admits that a desire to compete in the team event, plus the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, played a big part in his decision.
