Professional career[edit]

2003 to 2007[edit]

Dabul's climb in the professional ranks was a slow one, not indicative of his status as a former #1 Junior player. He broke into the top-500 in 2003, the top-300 in 2004, but did not crack the top-200 until late in 2007, finishing that year ranked #159.

2008[edit]

Dabul continued his slow, steady rise in 2008. In March, he reached his career-high in doubles of #88 with some good Challenger results, and then followed that up with a singles Challenger win in San Luis Potosí to reach a career-high in singles of #133. Three semi-final appearances in his next 4 Challengers got his ranking to #114 by May, but he failed to qualify into the 2008 French Open.

2009[edit]

Dabul won a 7–5 victory over world no. 1 Rafael Nadal in an exhibition match. This match, which took place on the eve of the French Open, occurred when Nadal had a win-loss record of 28–0 at the French Open.
