GSC and Damir begun working together in the height of the clay court season in 2015. Damir had a solid run up to the French Open reaching the semi-final in the ATP 250 event in Casablanca beating the 4th 6th seeds. The French Open was a big break through for Damir where he beat two greats of the game in Youzhny and Baghdatis before meeting Roger Federer in the Third Round. The profile of the match allowed the public to fall for Damir and his story in which the hospital where he was born fell in the Bosnian war weeks after birth to later be turned into the tennis centre where he now trains by his coach and father, Nerfid. Although Damir did not topple the great Roger Federer, he showed great clay court ability and fight.
Damir went on to play in both Wimbledon and the US Open, where tough draws meant he could not progress past the first round. However, Damir has won three ATP challenger titles in 2015 all on which were played on clay. Damir has reached a career high of 77 in 2015 to show for his efforts this year.
