Dzumhur’s First Final Nets Him A Career High Ranking

Dzumhur makes first final and nets career high ranking

WEEK: 08.28.2017

The mover of the week honors go to Damir Dzumhur, who made it to his first career ATP World Tour singles final this past Saturday at the Winston-Salem Open. While he did not win the title, it was a major breakthrough for the Bosnian. With the US Open beginning today, he will take this increased confidence into the main draw with hopes of catching a few opponents off guard. Unfortunately, if his legs are tired from his recent tournament, he won’t exactly feel too positive given the fact that he has to win three sets to advance to each subsequent round. The good news though is that he has a few days to recover before he plays his first round. He definitely hopes to go further than the second round this year and has a good chance of doing so. His first round opponent is Pablo Cuevas, who has also never made it past the second round at the US Open, so Dzumhur has a good chance of getting to round two. If he manages to upset the twenty-seventh seed, his probability of getting to the third round for the first time increases significantly.
