Hamad Medjedovic is a Serbian professional tennis player who was born on July 18, 2003, in Novi Pazar, Serbia. Aged just 10, he made the move to the country’s capital in search of better tennis facilities after showing promise early on in his childhood.

He was already making a name for himself in Serbian tennis when he was a junior, meeting childhood idol Novak Djokovic for the first time when he was nine, before hitting with him for the first time aged just 16.

Despite not spending a long time even in the minor leagues of tennis during the first two years on tour, the Serbian was already gifted his main draw ATP debut at his home tournament, the ATP 250 event in Belgrade. He ended up losing in the first round to Alex Molcan, but it was a valuable experience for the youngster, who was in search of more regular ATP appearances.

2022 brought more chances for him in qualifying tournaments, but to no avail, and he couldn’t quite find that elusive main draw win that season. He did, however, have more success on the Challenger circuit, where he claimed his first title at the Luedenscheid Open in Germany, beating players such as Marco Cecchinato and Nicolas Jarry en route to the title.

Despite starting 2023 off in much the same vein, this was to be the Serb’s breakthrough year. He made his Grand Slam debut at Roland Garros after getting through three qualifying rounds before repeating the feat a few weeks later at Wimbledon.

Just a couple of weeks after leaving SW19, he saw his success on the ATP Tour skyrocket, reaching his first semifinal after once again coming through qualifying. He beat Dominic Thiem on the way to his first semifinal appearance, which happened to be at the Swiss Open in Gstaad.

2023 was not over yet, though, and the Medjedovic was to reach another tour-level semifinal at the Astana Open later that year, where he ultimately lost to an in-form Sebastian Korda in three tantalizingly close, tie-break sets.

This stellar season was enough to qualify him for the season-ending Next Gen ATP Finals, where he breezed through his group in a run that would ultimately see him lift the title that week, seeing off Arthur Fils in the final.
