Early and personal life
Džumhur was born on 20 May 1992 in Sarajevo, as a first child to father Nerfid and mother Žaneta. His birth came shortly after the outbreak of the Bosnian War, in a maternity hospital located near the Zetra Olympic Hall. The arena was destroyed at the time, but it was the same place where Damir would start practicing tennis. He also has a five years younger brother, Zlatan.
As a kid Džumhur practiced skiing and football, in addition to tennis. Growing up, he admired Patrick Rafter and Roger Federer the most, and he is also a keen football fan and supports the Bosnian team FK Željezničar. In his childhood he also acted in two movies – Grbavica (2006), as background actor, and Mörderischer Frieden (2007), where he played major role as Durcan.
From the beginning Džumhur has been coached by his father Nerfid, who has been running a tennis school since 1994. He started playing tennis at the age of five and began practicing professionally in 1999, after the renovated Zetra has been opened.
In his early years he participated in local events, mainly in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia and Montenegro. His first major success came in 2004, when we won the unofficial U–12 European Championships in Rome. That year he played a total of nine tournaments, winning all of them and losing only four sets in the process.
In 2008 Džumhur started competing in official ITF junior tournaments. Up to 2010 he reached nine finals and won seven of them. That includes the triumph in the U–18 European Championships in Klosters, after beating Andrés Artuñedo Martínavarr, 6–1, 6–3 in the final. In August 2010 Džumhur won bronze medal in singles event at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore, thanks to a 7–5, 6–1 win over Victor Baluda, where he was also a country representative during the Opening Ceremony, as a flag bearer for Bosnia and Herzegovina. That year he appeared in his only three junior Grand Slam events, where he achieved a Second Round finish at the Roland Garros, a Quarterfinal finish at the Wimbledon Championships and a Third Round finish at the US Open in singles competitions and also a Quarterfinal, Second Round and Quarterfinal finish in doubles, respectively.
In July 2010 Džumhur was placed third on the ITF World Ranking, and eventually finishing the season one position lower.
First years as a professional
Džumhur turned professional in 2011, making his debut at the ATP World Tour in Zagreb during qualifying for the 2011 PBZ Zagreb Indoors. He spent his first years as a pro mainly in ATP Challenger Tour and ITF Men's Circuit tournaments. To date, he has won an overall twelve singles and eight doubles Futures titles, as well as twice reaching the finals in Challenger events – the 2013 Košice Open and 2013 Poznań Open.
2014: Closing in on Top 100
In January 2014, Džumhur became the first male Bosnian representative to play in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament, having reached the Third Round of the 2014 Australian Open, where he eventually lost to seventh seed Tomáš Berdych. On the way to this stage, Džumhur defeated Dustin Brown, Niels Desein, Ruben Bemelmans in qualifying competition, before winning against Jan Hájek, and thirty-second seeded Ivan Dodig. He received praise from Berdych and Novak Djokovic after the tournament.
Džumhur then played for his country in Davis Cup First Round match against Greece, where he lost in four sets to Markos Kalovelonis, ranked 691st that time. However, in his next match he came back from two sets down and won against Alexandros Jakupovic, sealing a 3–1 victory for Bosnia and Herzegovina over Greece. That was then followed by a series of unsuccessful appearances in a combination of World Tour and Challenger Tour events across Europe and the United States, where Džumhur made his debut in ATP World Tour Masters 1000 cycle, having played in the qualifying of the Indian Wells Masters and the Miami Masters, where he won his sole eight points during that period. He finished his first hard-court part of the season by helping his country beat Finland in the 2014 Davis Cup Group II Second Round.
Džumhur opened his clay campaign by winning 2014 Mersin Cup – first Challenger tournament in his career. On the way to this triumph he defeated Guillaume Rufin, Egor Gerasimov, Thomas Fabbiano and Matteo Viola in straight sets. That was followed by a 7–6, 6–3 win over Pere Riba in the final match, which allowed him to achieve career-high singles ranking. Džumhur became only the second player (after Amer Delić), who has ever won a Challenger tournament under the Bosnian flag. In May that year, at 2014 Roland Garros, he qualified for second straight Grand Slam tournament, where he lost in the first round to 26th seed Feliciano López. Straight after he went on to win his second challenger title, at 2014 BRD Arad Challenger, in Romania, by beating Pere Riba again in the final, 6–4, 7–6, which moved him in Top 110 of ATP Ranking.
Later in June, Džumhur took part in his only matches of the season played on grass surface, losing both of them in three sets – to Ante Pavić in singles and Gero Kretschmer/Alexander Satschko pair in doubles, during 2014 Wimbledon Championships qualifying events.
During his clay-court comeback, Džumhur won in Italy his third title of the season at 2014 San Benedetto Tennis Cup, by beating Andreas Haider-Maurer in the final 6–3, 6–3. That gave him first ever direct entry into the main draw of Grand Slam tournament – 2014 US Open. He was there defeated in the first round by David Ferrer, ranked No. 5 at that time, losing in four sets, 1–6, 2–6, 6–2, 2–6. A week before the start of US Open Džumhur qualified for the first time in his career to ATP World Tour event, which was 2014 Winston-Salem Open, played on hard surface, where he lost in two sets to Adrian Mannarino.
His last Davis Cup appearance of the season has ended in three-set defeat to Ričardas Berankis, which sealed victory for Lithuania and left Bosnia and Herzegovina in Group II of the Europe/Africa Zone.
In Autumn of 2014 Džumhur was unsuccessful in his hard-court appearances, however he twice achieved his career-high ranking of 101. On both occasions he was one point short of being placed among Top 100 of the world, as the first male Bosnian representative. He eventually finished that season on 109th place, and thus failed to achieved his goal, set in August, of singles ranking inside first hundred by the end of the season, as well as did not gain direct entry into the first Grand Slam tournament of the new season – 2015 Australian Open, but he fulfilled his initial wish of being ranked in Top 150 at the end of the year.
Džumhur started new season in India, where he was unsuccessful in his bid to qualify for the main draw of 2015 Aircel Chennai Open, losing to Luca Vanni in the final qualifying round. For the first time in his career, he also took part in the main doubles event on ATP World Tour level, playing alongside Aljaž Bedene. Later in January he failed to pass Australian Open qualifying, after loss to Tim Pütz in the second qualifying round, 2–6, 6–4, 6–8, while being the top seed in the draw.
