Amer Delić (born June 30, 1982) is a retired Bosnian tennis player. Representing the United States as a tour player until 2009, he was representing the country of his birth, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and was a member of its Davis Cup team.
Delić was born in Tuzla, then in Yugoslavia, now in the northeastern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1996, his family emigrated to Jacksonville, Florida where he attended Samuel W. Wolfson High School, a public high school with the largest Bosnian population in Florida.
In Grand Slams, Delić's best performance has been reaching the third round at the 2009 Australian Open. At the 2005 U.S. Open Delić and Jeff Morrison reached the third round in doubles, upsetting the team of Leander Paes and Nenad Zimonjić in the first round.
Delić started off the year in Brisbane, where he won three qualifying matches, but was defeated in the first round by Mario Ančić 6-7(2) 7-6(4) 6-7(6). In Sydney he was defeated in the first round by Denis Gremelmayr 4-6 6-7(4). At the Australian Open, Amer finally started to win. He came through three qualifying matches. In the first round of the main draw he defeated Taylor Dent 6-4 3-6 4-6 6-3 6-4. In the second round he defeated Paul-Henri Mathieu 1-6 3-6 6-3 7-6(3) 9-7. In the third round he was stopped by Novak Djokovic 2-6 6-4 3-6 6-7(4). After the match spectators were caught throwing chairs at each other due to the conflict between Bosnians and Serbs. Due to a knee injury, Delić's last 2009 appearance on the ATP tour was a first round loss against Nicolas Mahut at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in July.
2010: Comeback and Davis Cup play for Bosnia and Herzegovina
At the US Open, Delić tried a comeback but lost in the first qualification round against Michael Yani. In September, he joined the Bosnia and Herzegovina Davis Cup team for a tie in the Europe/Africa Group II against Portugal. He lost both his singles match against Frederico Gil in five sets and his doubles match on the side of Aldin Šetkić to Gil and Leonardo Tavares in four sets. Overall, after a 2:3 loss, his team stayed in Group II.
In March, Delić participated in the Bosnia and Herzegovina team's Davis Cup tie in the Europe/Africa Zone Group II against Morocco. He won one of his two singles matches and the doubles match (on the side of Ismar Gorčić), thereby securing his team's victory. In the next tie against Estonia played in July, Delić won all his three matches decidedly helping his team to advance to the next stage against Denmark. There, he again won his two singles matches but not the doubles match so the team stayed in Group II. On the ATP Tour, Delić won his first title since 2008 at the BH Telecom Indoors at Sarajevo, a challenger tournament.
In Davis Cup play, Delić again was instrumental in securing his team's win over Turkey in February by winning both his singles matches and the doubles match.
