Damir Dzumhur's father, Nerfid, strongly insists his son has never been involved in any illegal activities. Recently, a report came out in Germany suggesting that a men's tennis star was among those suspected in a huge match-fixing investigation.
In the report, it was mentioned the player is ranked inside the top-30 and has won several titles on the Tour. Dzumhur's isn't ranked inside the top-30 anymore but he is a three-time ATP champion. Dzumhur, ranked at No.
93 in the world, achieved his career-high ranking of No. 23 last year. In an interview with Avaz Sport, Nerfid Dzumhur strongly denied the match fixing allegations made against his son in some media outlets. Per Nerfid Dzumhur, his son "was never being treated as a suspect" in any match fixing scandal -- even in the latest in which 135 players are being investigated.
Dzumhur is currently in Dubai, where he trains with Roger Federer ahead of the new season. The Bosnian will be hoping to have a bounce back campaign in 2020 after not performing the way he would have liked in 2019.
