Dušan Vemić (Cyrillic: Душан Вемић) is a Serbian professional tennis player. He was born on June 17, 1976, in Zadar, in Yugoslavia, now Croatia; he currently lives in Belgrade.

Professional career

His professional tennis career started in 1995, and his career high was No. 146 in singles (reached on February 25, 2008), and No.31 in doubles (on January 12, 2009).

Vemić began 2007 ranked #406, down 170 spots from the start of 2006. He had success in 2007 playing at all levels of the tennis tour: Futures, Challenger, and ATP events. Two Futures semifinals and a final, qualifying into 3 ATP events, and qualifying into and winning a match in a top-level Challenger moved his ranking back into the top-300 in mid-April. He then reached the semifinal of a top-level Challenger in Bermuda in April and qualified into the main draw of the French Open in May, where he lost in four sets to eventual third-rounder Janko Tipsarević. In August, a semifinal performance in a top-level Challenger in Segovia followed by a finals appearance the next week in a Challenger in Binghamton pushed his ranking back into the top-200 for the first time since he was there for two weeks in 2004, and was his highest ranking since May 1998, when he spent 5 weeks in the top-200.

In 2008, Vemić competed in World Team Tennis with the Kansas City Explorers entry, which narrowly lost the league championship to the New York Buzz.

Highlights of his 2008 year include winning 5 titles on the ATP Challenger Tour:

Miami, FL, USA with Ilia Bozoljac (SRB) Sunrise, FL, USA Janko Tipsarevic (SRB) Cremona, Italy with Eduardo Schwank (ARG) Waco, TX, USA with Alex Bogomolov Jr. (USA) calabasas, CA, USA with Ilia Bozoljac (SRB).

Vemić also reached both the semifinals of the Grand Slam venues of the French Open and the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open with partner, Bruno Soares.

Always versatile in his partner choice, tennis journeyman Dusan Vemić has partnered with players such as Jamie Murray, Ivo Karlović, Novak Đoković and Mischa Zverev in 2009.[1]

In the 2010 Australian Open, Vemić and Ivo Karlović made the semi finals losing to Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjić 6/4,6/4
