Damir Dzumhur

Another one of the 1992 rising stars who is starting their senior career and deserves a forum.

Birthdate: May 20, 1992
Birthplace: Sarajevo, Bosnia
Career Junior High: 3

Damir had a very good junior career, though he never won a Grandslam, or reached Number 1, he won many titles in both singles and doubles. His first singles title was at a G5, and then a couple months later he won a G4, before making it to the finals of a few G3s later. He was runner-up at the G1 Perin Memorial, which propelled his ranking up. His first Grand Slam was Roland Garros in 2009, where he lost in the second round, and then lost in the Quarter-finals in Wimbledon. Afterwards he won the Prestigious European Cup, and then followed that up with a Bronze Medal at the Junior Olympics, before winning a G1 in Canada in both singles and doubles. His final tournament was the Junior US Open, where he lost to Wildcard and eventual winner Jack Sock, in the 3rd round.

Re: Damir Dzumhur

Damir lost pretty badly to Kavcic, 6-0 6-4, and didn't win a single point on Kavcic's serve in the first set. ATP 250's are probably still too high for him.

Re: Damir Dzumhur

Damir lost in the first round of the Croatia Futures to number 3 seed Niemenin, in three sets.... He's still not at that level.

Re: Damir Dzumhur

he caught my eye at the junior olympics, he has alot of promise

first round at padova:

Damir Dzumhur [BIH/Q] d. Andrea Arnaboldi [ITA/7] 7-6(1) 6-1

second round:

Razvan Sabau [ROU] d. Damir Dzumhur [BIH/Q] 4-6 6-4 6-2

bit disappointing after the good first round win

Re: Damir Dzumhur

The thing I liked most about him is that he's an all court player

Re: Damir Dzumhur

Dzumhur will get 5 points tomorrow for his semi-final last week, and then add 17 points the next week for winning the title this week. So tomorrow his ranking his be about 880, and then the week after he'll be around 651.
