According to my criteria Damm doesn't deserve a tribute thread only because he never won an ATP tournament in singles, however 5-time finalist (without a chance to win one of those finals)
He had some notable results as a singles player though. I saw him for the first time in the 2nd round of Wimbledon '92 (on Court No. 1 if I remember well), it was just his 8th tournament on the main level and he played a 5-setter against Becker who had played Wimbledon finals in the 4 previous editions. It was a shocker that Damm forced him to play 5 sets. We would have expected more from the Czech after that...
He hasn't played a singles match since 2002 but I think he was a poor man's Bjorkman: decent baseliner, solid volleyer who possessed good reflex, but without the finesse and he was too heavy to move fast on clay courts, he was actually useless there albeit on this surface he won his first Challenger '91 - Warsaw (a curiosity: the first Challenger in Poland), but he was only 20 so probably much more faster then without excessive weight
