His game suits clay courts, not so good serve because of his height, very fast, with solid groundstrokes, not so fast, but precise, especially FH, solid net play, and very good dropshots

Great win for Damir Didn't think he'd be beating Riba on clay.

DZUMHUR CRUISES TO MAIDEN CHALLENGER TITLE

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...pril-2014.aspx

Damir Dzumhur, who made headlines at this year's Australian Open as the first player from Bosnia & Herzegovina to qualify for a Grand Slam, en route to the third round, claimed his maiden Challenger trophy in Mersin. Dzumhur prevailed 7-6(4), 6-3 over top seed Pere Riba, who entered the final having won 11 of his previous 12 matches. The eighth-seeded 21-year-old was competing in his third title match after falling in Kosice (l. to Kukushkin) and Poznan (l. to Haider-Maurer) last year. He joins Amer Delic as the only players to win on the Challenger circuit under the Bosnian flag.

What the Players are Saying

Riba (via twitter): "Today it wasn't to be in the final. He played a good match and I didn't take advantage of many opportunities. I'm happy because I left everything on the court and fought until the end. Tomorrow I return to Barcelona to prepare for the next tournament."

Riba had it on his racket and should have won, looked like he had it already turned around at 6-5 40-15.
