Bosnian Davis Cup Team Captain Tomislav Brkic didn't appear to be happy with top-ranked Bosnian Damir Dzumhur choosing to play an ATP tournament over representing his country in the Davis Cup. Bosnia and Herzegovina, who were heavily weakened by the absence of three-time ATP champion Dzumhur, fell just short of beating the Czech Republic in a Davis Cup Group I clash and clinching a spot in next year's Davis Cup qualifying round.
Bosnia and Herzegovina were down 2-0 after the opening day -- but refused to give up -- as they won the following two rubbers, before 2019 US Open boys' champion Jonas Forajtek beat Brkic in the deciding rubber. Dzumhur, the 2017 St.
Petersburg Open champion, played his qualifying first round match at the Russian ATP 250 event on Sunday. "I think that some tournament shouldn't be a priority to anyone because we can take two weeks per year to play for our country.
And when our team is complete, we are a strong team who can contend for a place in the World Group," Brkic said, per Klix.
