Rising Serbian star Miomir Kecmanovic is extremely satisfied with the way he has been progressing and improving as a player this season. After a promising junior career, the 19-year-old Serb is enjoying a breakthrough season on the ATP tour.
Kecmanovic, ranked at No. 50 in the world, recently fell just short of winning his maiden ATP title as he ended runner-up at the Antalya Open. However, his first big results came at the Indian Wells Masters earlier this year, where he made the quarterfinal as a lucky loser.
Kecmanovic, who started the year ranked at No. 131 in the world, achieved a career-high ranking of No. 49 in the world earlier this month. "So much has changed. I have learned a lot and matured, while big wins have helped me to believe more in myself.
Now I approach my matches differently -- when I play against the top guys, big matches, it's easier for me because I have already gone through the similar experiences," Kecmanovic exclusively told Sasa Ozmo of Sport Klub in New York.
