Damir Dzumhur donates medical equipment to hospital in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Top-ranked Bosnian tennis player Damir Dzumhur has donated medical equipment to the hospital in Konjic, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dzumhur's father Nerfid was born Konjic, which has been one of the hardest hit cities by the coronavirus in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has had 656 confirmed coronavirus cases and Konjic is the fourth city on the list with most confirmed cases in the country with 28. Dzumhur, a three-time ATP champion, says it's his responsibility to help his country in these difficult times and that he is open to making more donations if necessary.

Dzumhur's father Nerfid handed the donation as the top-ranked Bosnian player can't leave Belgrade. "My father kept in touch with the hospital. In agreement with them, we made a list of equipment that was needed and then proceeded with the donation.

We will keep in touch with them so we can help if there's need for some other equipment," Dzumhur told Klix. "I don't consider this as an act of help -- this is my responsibility since I know with what Konjic and the whole Bosnia and Herzegovina are facing right now."

After leading Bosnia and Herzegovina to a Davis Cup win over South Africa in early March, Dzumhur went to Belgrade to practice ahead of the Masters events in Indian Wells and Miami. The opening two Masters events of the season were eventually called off and Dzumhur cancelled his flight to the United States at the last minute.
