Amer Deli? (Bosnian pronunciation: [d?li:t?]; born June 30, 1982) is a Bosnian American former professional tennis player. He is a former captain and member of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Davis Cup team.[1]

Deli? was born in Tuzla, then in Yugoslavia, now in the northeastern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1996, his family emigrated to Jacksonville, Florida where he attended Samuel W. Wolfson High School, a public high school with the largest Bosnian population in Florida.

Deli? played collegiate tennis at the University of Illinois. At Illinois he won both the NCAA Division I singles and team championships in 2003.

In Grand Slams, Deli?'s best singles performance was to reach the third round at the 2009 Australian Open. In doubles Deli? reached the third round of the US Open twice: with Jeff Morrison in 2005, having upset the team of Leander Paes and Nenad Zimonji? in the first round, and with Justin Gimelstob in 2007.

In March 2007, Deli? reached the fourth round of the Miami Masters, upset World No. 4 Nikolay Davydenko en route in straight sets.

2009

Deli? started off the year in Brisbane, where he won three qualifying matches, but was defeated in the first round by Mario An?i? 6-7(2), 7-6(4), 6-7(6). In Sydney he was defeated in the first round by Denis Gremelmayr 4-6, 6-7(4). At the Australian Open, Amer finally started to win. He came through three qualifying matches, but lost in the qualifying stage. When he was awarded into a lucky loser spot after Filippo Volandri banned from a drug substantial use. In the first round of the main draw he defeated Taylor Dent 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. In the second round he defeated Paul-Henri Mathieu 1-6, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(3) 9-7. In the third round he was stopped by Novak Djokovic 2-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(4). After the match spectators were caught throwing chairs at each other due to the conflict between Bosnians and Serbs. Due to a knee injury, Deli?'s last 2009 appearance on the ATP tour was a first round loss against Nicolas Mahut at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in July.

2010: Comeback and Davis Cup play for Bosnia and Herzegovina

At the US Open, Deli? tried a comeback but lost in the first qualification round against Michael Yani. In September, he joined the Bosnia and Herzegovina Davis Cup team for a tie in the Europe/Africa Group II against Portugal. He lost both his singles match against Frederico Gil in five sets and his doubles match on the side of Aldin ?etki? to Gil and Leonardo Tavares in four sets. Overall, after a 2:3 loss, his team stayed in Group II.

In March, Deli? participated in the Bosnia and Herzegovina team's Davis Cup tie in the Europe/Africa Zone Group II against Morocco. He won one of his two singles matches and the doubles match (on the side of Ismar Gor?i?), thereby securing his team's victory. In the next tie against Estonia played in July, Deli? won all his three matches decidedly helping his team to advance to the next stage against Denmark. There, he again won his two singles matches but not the doubles match so the team stayed in Group II. On the ATP Tour, Deli? won his first title since 2008 at the BH Telecom Indoors at Sarajevo, a challenger tournament.

In Davis Cup play, Deli? again was instrumental in securing his team's win over Turkey in February by winning both his singles matches and the doubles match.
