ATP Ranking: European honor defended by Basic and Dzumhur

Youngest European player in top 400 on the ATP ranking is Damir Dzumhur, while Basic, who is ranked 288, trails only two players younger than him.

Year behind us saw significant results in BH tennis, namely on men’s circuit. First, the return of Amer Delic was successful and he is now ranked 212 on ATP list, which opens up ample possibilities to advance further in the coming year. Secondly, two young players which were in the top of the junior tennis over the previous years have shown that their junior success was no fluke.

In-line with their peers

Mirza Basic (12.7.1991) has proved that he can play Challengers (two semifinals, both indoor, and one quarterfinal on clay), while winning sole title on clay (Futures in Serbia). He took first points at an ATP event (Belgrade), albeit won in the qualifications. All this brought him great ranking – 288th place, while starting the year ranked 520.

At the same time Damir Dzumhur (20.5.1992) had a great rookie season on professional tour advancing from 1005th to 340th position. He won four tournaments, all Futures, three on clay and one with prize money of 15.000.

Comparing the abovementioned results of two Sarajevans to their competition, notably with younger players we have come to some rather interesting conclusions. To point out, Basic is ranked 6th in ATP rankings among his age peers (same year of birth), while Dzumhur is ranked 11th among players born in 1992.

Europe has no better

However, if we look at regional (continental) background of players we come to the following facts. Ahead of Dzumhur, of European players, are only Spanish Javier Marti (184) and German Kevin Krawietz (332), both older than him (born in January), while behind him is Italian Federico Gaio, ranked 375, but also older (born in March). Thus, Damir Dzumhur is currently the youngest European in the top 400 in the ATP rankings! If we look at the same data in regards to Mirza Basic we come to the following – in front of his 288th ranking are only two younger Europeans – the before mentioned Spanish Marti and Laurynas Grigelis, of Lithuania, who is ranked 198.

Just as a reminder, Europeans are currently dominating the world tennis – top 10 has 9 European players, while top 100 holds 72. Should we look at this situation, in which the greatest hopes of European tennis, and of world tennis at the same time, are coming from Bosnia and Herzegovina, as unusual and surprising? Of course not! Top tennis has very much been marked by Bosnians, who one must say, due to various circumstances, have competed under different flags. Top 10 had two players already – Ivan Ljubicic (CRO, 3) and Marin Cilic (CRO, 9). Top 100 has Ivan Dodig (32), while Delic was ranked 60. Best ranking of Marinko Matosevic (AUS, 131), another Bosnian born players is not bat at all, is it? All these players are still on the tour as well!

Therefore, Basic and Dzumhur are just a continuation of a one greater line of players and it would be no surprise if they find themselves in ATP’s exclusive company, showing once again that the kids of this region are natural born Tennis talents. If only the people making money on tennis would recognize this and provide support for the Sarajevo players, who knows where their limits would be?


Raonic and Tomic lead the pack
Young players are having hard time making it to the tennis elite. To point out, inside top 100 only five players are born in 1990 or beyond. First of them is Milos Raonic (1990), native Montenegrin, who is playing under Canadian flag and is currently ranked 31. Second is Bernard Tomic (1992), player of Bosnian roots, born in Germany, but playing form Australia and is currently ranked 42 in the world. Other are Dimitrov Grigor (Bulgaria, 1991), ranked 76, followed by Ryan Harrison (USA, 1992), ranked 79 and Cedrik-Marcel Stebe (Germany, 1990) ranked 81 on the ATP list.

Stars of BiH(1): Dzumhur's perfect season

Unbelievable rookie season in the professional ranks has brought this 19 year old an enviable position in among the up-and-coming young tennis lions.
Young BH player Damir Dzumhur has once again confirmed the grandeur of his talent during 2011 and confirmed that Bosnia and Herzegovina is a never-ending source of tennis stars. After having performed impeccably during his final junior season last year, winning several high-profile trophies: European champion (Switzerland, July 2010), bronze medal on the junior Olympic games (Singapore, August 2010), along with 3rd position on the ITF rankings, this 19 year old Bosnian has had a phenomenal first year on the professional tour.

Record improvement

He played mainly futures, mainly on clay and managed great results – he started the year ranked 1008, while he now ranks (19. 12. 2011.) 339 on the ATP ranking, giving him an improvement of 669 places. How great of an achievement that is shows the fact that only one player has a better ranking than him and has advanced more during this season – that being a 26 year old German Stefan Seufert, who is ranked 305, having advanced 700 places, but important noting that he was 467th world player in 2008. Dzumhur played 21 tournaments this year and has a win-loss record of 48-18 in singles and 36-14 in doubles.

During the first part of the season Dzumhur played a series of stronger futures (15.000 prize money) and several times passed the first round, with the most notable win coming in Padova, Italy, when he defeated Andrea Arnaboldi (Italy, ranked 308 at the time, 7:6(1), 6:1). This was a great entry for the series of futures in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia, where this young Sarajevan showed his strength. Already in May, after the semi-final in Sarajevo, Dzumhur wins his first professional title in Brcko, B&H (defeated Aldin Setkic, BiH, 6:3 5:7 7:5) and reaches career-high 648th position in the ATP ranking. He spends his month of June playing futures in Serbia, where his best result is a final against Frenchman Axel Michon, 340th player in the world, which he loses 6:7(8), 6:4, 5:7.

Youngest European in top 400!

By late August the Croatian tour is on and Dzumhur plays great and wins Osijek, his second title, this one without the dropped set. That success launches him to the top 500 in the first week of September, all the way to the 460th position, which marked the achievement of the goals set by Damir and his father Nerfid Dzumhur, who is also his coach, at the beginning of the season. Still, this is not the end of their story because Damir plays great again in October and November, adding new trophies to their collection. Clay court season is closed in Dubrovnik in great style – winning 15.000 futures both in single (without the dropped set) and double, which sees him jump to 376th position in the ranking. After that he moves on to hard courts and wins the first tournament he plays – futures in Antalya (Turkey), which secured him the current ranking (339) and showed that he is not just a one-surface payer.

Taking a look at the ATP ranking shows a few more interesting facts. To mention a few, youngest European in the top 400 is Damir Dzumhur, which reiterates the continuation of his dominance on the European continent, carried over from his junior days. Of the European players born in the same year as Dzumhur, only Spaniard Javier Marti (184) and German Kevin Krawietz (323), are ranked better, keeping in mind that Mart has practically by-passed his junior career to play on the pro-tour.

Stars of BiH(2): Mirza Basic a step away from ATP company

Behind the 20-year old Sarajevan is a season in which he practically said goodbye to the futures and showed his worth on the Challenger tour, where he performed great and is one of the leaders of his generation.


Jump of 232 places on the ATP list does not impress at first glance, however when the jump is from 520 to 282, than this fact appears to be much more interesting. For B&H public this information is particularly important as this significant jump in the ranking has occurred all through-out one calendar year of play by Mirza Basic, one of the world's best young players.

Tursunov is not a coincidence

After a great junior career (best ranking – 6th on IFT Ranking), this young Sarajevan has in the last two years, namely from February 8th of 2010, when he was ranked 1015, until December 12th this year, when he ranked 288 in the world, done a great job.

Season which just ended Basic opened with January appearances on two very strong futures (15.000, indoor) in United Kingdom, where he reached semi-finals both times, which put inside the top 500 (January 31st he was ranked 464 in the world). February than saw him play in the final of the equally strong tournament in Croatia, after which he had the tournament of his career – semifinal of the Sarajevo Challenger, which he reached after wins over Slovenian Grega Zemlja, 141 ATP ranking, and Dmitry Tursunov (RUS), 7:6(11) 7:6(1). After these great performances Basic jumped into the top 400 and stayed there throughout the spring and the entire summer (best result was a final in Prijedor, B&H). Before that (end April) he played the final of the qualifications at the Belgrade ATP tournament (lost to Franko Skugor, CRO, 4:6 2:6)

Best of Europe

In September he finally catches good form on clay and wins the futures in Serbia and plays the quarterfinal of the Banjaluka (B&H) challenger (lost to Spaniard Pere Riba, 70th on the ATP list, 1:6 3:6). He completes the year by excellent performances on the American tour, where he plays a series of indoor Challengers. In Knoxville (USA) Basic reaches semifinals from the qualifications, beating Bobby Reynolds, 118th world player by the score of 6:3 6:3. That was a great ending to the season because that performance put him into the top 300, which is a certain sign that his efforts were not in vain and that his career is heading in a right direction.

This is confirmed by the following – only two Europeans younger than him have a better ranking – those are Spaniard Javier Marti (1992), ranked 184, and Laurynas Grigelis (1991), ranked 198.

Bosnia has caught up to Croatia/Serbia in terms of football power. This is their best generation of football stars.

But in terms of tennis, it will take awhile, but I'm sure one day we'll get some top notch Bosnian players in the ATP top 70 or 50 sooner or later, and maybe one day, somewhere in the top 30. I think once the country becomes stable, things will move up quickly and efficiently.

Damir Džumhur won Ćividino (Italy)

Winner from the heart of Bosnia :worship:

This weekend, Damir Dzumhur, the biggest tennis hope of Bosnia and Herzegovina, has definitely closed a phase in his tennis development. Namely he has won a trophy on Cividino (Italy) Futures, which is his 6th title in the last 10 months. This 19 year old Sarajevan began his winning spree in June of 2011 (Brcko, BiH), continued in September and November (Osijek and Dubrovnik), and in December in Turkey (Antalya), just to extend the roll in February this year again in Turkey (Antalya) and now in Italy.

First three titles were won on clay courts, two on hard courts, while the last one was won indoors. In the past ten months he has also played one final (Belgrade, Serbia), but came up shorthanded, making his finally tally a rather impressing 6-1.

Thus in his trophy room there is only one trophy missing – one won on grass courts – to really have a perfect collection. Certainly, Damir and his father Nerfid Dzumhur, who is also his career long coach, will find the way to add such a title to their list.

Damir Dzumhur plays Davis Cup this week and switches to clay thereafter (Brazil).

All the above mentioned results will largely reflect upon the ATP ranking coming out on April 9th, when Dzumhur will break into top 300. More precisely, he will be ranked around 270, making him the second all-time best ranked Bosnian player. Amer Delic, who ranked 60 in 2007, will be the sole remaining ahead of Damir.

Basic won free points here, not impressive but good for him.
Dzumhur on the other hand is doing some interesting stuff in south america right now, but blew some opportunities against Trungelliti or Brizzi this week

It's great to hear our friendly neighbours have more and more players under their flag. Maybe it's time few of them reach high ranks in the near future.:)

Good to see Bosnia getting some players, but still, all players with talent from Bosnia switch nationalities to Serbia and Croatia early in their career because chances to succeed there are bigger.
I just have to :spit: at Džumhur name :sorry: :sobbing:

New record for D. Dzumhur :angel:

New best ranking for Dzumhur on ATP ranking list is seven places better than his career-best and 16 places ahead of position from last week.

This week, again, brought about some changes to the list of best BH tennis players, looking by the ATP stats. First spot is again held by, now 20 years old, Damir Dzumhur, who is currently 227th in the world with 219 points. This way, he improved his career-best by seven and last week’s position by 16 spots. This current improvement is the effect of, namely, circumstances that Damir’s ranking this week included both titles from Brcko Futures. He is followed by Amer Delic, who is ranked 250 with 205 points, which is a drop by one spot in relation to the last week. Third place is held by Mirza Basic, whose 146 points were enough for 303rd position (-4 in relation to last week). The next two places are held by Tomislav Brkic who is ranked 410th (94 points, +1) and Aldin Setkic, who has only one point less. Ismar Gorcic is number 6 among BiH players, holding 793rd spot in the world. (17, -9), Franjo Raspudic is right behind him (1036, 7, -7), while the last place is held by Jasmin Ademovic who has one point and ranks 1637 in the world.
Looking only at performances in 2012, Dzumhur is ranked no. 161 and already has 126 points, Delic is 210 with 93 points and third among the BiH players is Setkic, whose 65 points is enough for 266th position. Basic and Brkic share, with 58 points each, 284th spot, while Gorcic is 533rd (16 points). Thus this statistics shows that we can expect further improvement from our players because their ranking in 2012 is better than their overall ranking.
On the doubles ranking, Dzumhur is also first with 364th position (170, -3), followed by Delic on 417th spot (132, -5), Setkic on 484th (112, 21), Brkic is 574th (82, -6), Basic (29, -7)...

Great series by Damir Dzumhur continues on the Kiseljak BiH Futures (USD 10.000, clay) – he has again recorded five consecutive victories and has raised the winner’s trophy again. Today he defeated 5th seed Norbert Gombos, 21 years old Slovak, whose best ranking was 395, in two sets – 6:3 7:6(3).
In this way the 20 year old Sarajevan won his 5th title in 2012 in as many finals. Of the last four tournaments, all BiH Futures, he won three, meaning he lost only once (16-1). In his career so far he played 10 finals and has lost only one. Points from Kiseljak will help him maintain his excellent ranking in the coming weeks, although he played well in this time last year as well, so he has some points to defend as well. Still, how much of an improvement in relation to the previous year this represent is shown by the fact that already in 2012 has advanced by 112 positions (started the year at 339, and is now 227).
Ahead of Damir are new great challenges in the coming period, with the first real one coming in the Wimbledon qualifications. :wavey:
