How are the things going? Based on info from Amer's website he is going to be back on tour in Spring 2010. Anybody knows where exactly is he planning to have 1st tournament?

I don't think he's said on twitter, but you should follow him there as he tweets quite regularly - maybe ask him where he plans to play? http://twitter.com/amerdelic

Amer is going to get his University degree this weekend!

From the sidebar section:

Pomp and circumstance

Sidelined pro Amer Delic will collect his diploma in business and sports management from the University of Illinois this weekend, graduating on the same day that his older sister, Lejla Ovcina-Delic, is awarded a Ph.D. in psychology. It's a huge, heartwarming day for their parents, who emigrated to Jacksonville, Fla., from Bosnia when their children were small and never had the chance to attend college. Delic, 27, decided to go back to school full-time last fall for the first time since 2003 when it was clear that knee surgery would keep him off the tour for an extended period. He's been hitting for a few weeks and played exhibition mixed doubles in Dallas last week with Corina Morariu. Delic kept his form up during his layoff by shadow-hitting in front of a mirror, a technique espoused by Craig Tiley, his former coach at Illinois, and hopes to return before the U.S. Open. "The strokes are there, now it's just a matter of conditioning,'' Delic said.

I saw this on twitter:

Had an MRI earlier today to check up on my knee. Followed it up with a 3 mile run on the beach... #Wimby will be the last Slam I watch on TV

So maybe he is going to play US-open??

I have heard that, but I don't know if it is true. However it would give Amer a chance to play Davis-cup.Bosnia has no top 200 player, so they should welcome him.

Adin Delić (dunno if he's a relative or smth) wrote on his facebook page: "Amer uskoro pocinje da igra pod zastavom Bosne i Hercegovine"

"Amer is soon going to play under the Bosnia and Herzegowina flag "

How odd, he just played USO Qualifying for the USA? How is that possible?

He didn't technically "play for USA", even though it was listed in his bio. Rules say if he has a valid passport and has not represented any other country for the past 3 years in Davis Cup, Olympics, or other ITF recognized team event, then he is good to go.

How did he not technically play for the USA? He played a round of qualifying and USA was next to his name, so he played under the American flag. Seems there are different restrictions for team events, but it is odd to me to be able to represent one country as an individual in an ITF event and one country in a team ITF event :shrug:
