Miomir Kecmanovic is a Serbian professional tennis player who was born on August 31, 1999, in Belgrade, Serbia. Inspired by fellow Serbian and all-time great Novak Djokovic, Kecmanovic started swinging a racquet early on in his childhood.

He rapidly progressed through the junior categories, enjoying a successful career before even reaching the main ATP Tour. The man from Serbia won the Orange Bowl final in 2015 before going on to reach the US Open Boys' final the following year, losing out to who would later become fellow pro, Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Turning pro officially in 2017, Kecmanovic made use of the ITF and Challenger circuits to rise the ranks before joining the main tour. The Serb’s main-draw ATP debut came on a big stage – the Masters 1000 tournament in Miami. Unfortunately, it was not to be for the newbie, with him losing out in the first round to Denis Istomin.

This result propelled him up to more ATP stardom, gaining him entry into countless main-draw events. The following year saw him earn his Grand Slam debut at the Australian Open, as well as reaching his first Masters 1000 quarterfinal in Indian Wells.

It was not long before his maiden ATP final came around, with the Serbian narrowly losing out to Lorenzo Sonego in the final of the 250 event in Antalya. A stellar 2019 season earned him a spot at the year-ending Next Gen ATP Finals, which he turned up at well, only just missing out on a spot in the final after losing to eventual Grand Slam winner Jannik Sinner.

Despite a COVID-19-hit following season, Kecmanovic managed to keep up his newfound form, and his maiden ATP title came quickly after. His week to shine was in Austria, with the Serbian winning the 250 event after he beat Yannick Hanfmann in the final to take home the silverware.

More career highlights include more semifinal and quarterfinal appearances in the subsequent years, as well as reaching the final of the Estoril Open in 2023. 2023 was also the year that saw him break into the Top 30.
