Du?an Vemi? (Serbian Cyrillic: ; born June 17, 1976) is a Serbian tennis coach[1][2] and former professional tennis player.

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). Vemi? ranks 19th in Fastest recorded tennis serves (235 km/h / 146 mph) in Tour history.

Vemi? 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 Tipsarevi?. 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, Vemi? 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 doubles titles on the ATP Challenger Tour: Miami, FL, United States with Ilija Bozoljac (SRB); Sunrise, FL, USA with Janko Tipsarevic (SRB); Cremona, Italy with Eduardo Schwank (ARG); Waco, TX, USA with Alex Bogomolov Jr. (USA); and Calabasas, CA, USA with Ilija Bozoljac (SRB).

Vemi? also reached both the semifinals of the French Open and the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open with partner Bruno Soares.

Always versatile in his partner choice, Dusan Vemi? has partnered with players such as Jamie Murray, Ivo Karlovi?, Novak Djokovic, and Mischa Zverev in 2009.[3]

In the 2010 Australian Open, Vemi? and Ivo Karlovi? made the semifinals, losing to Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonji? 6-4,6-4

Coaching career

Following his career on tour, Vemi? briefly coached WTA player Andrea Petkovic, helping her and coach Petar Popovi? to reach an all-time WTA ranking high of #9.

Soon afterward, Vemi? joined the world number one tennis team for Novak Djokovic. As part of the Djokovic team, Vemi? coached alongside Djokovic's longtime coach Marian Vajda in US Open '11, '12; Australian Open '12, '13; French Open '12, '13; Wimbledon '12, '13. During that time, Djokovic won two grand slam titles at the Australian Open and one grand slam title at the US Open in Flushing Meadows, NY, as well as the 2012 ATP World Tour Finals in London. In 2016, Vemic coached Djokovic at the ATP Miami Open, where he won the Championship against Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-3, and surpassed Roger Federer in career prize money earnings.

In January 2013, Vemi? joined the coaching staff of the Serbian Davis Cup team, seeing it to the Davis Cup finals against Czech Republic. He remains a coach of the Serbian team, helping lead them through the 2016 Davis Cup World Group competition.

In August 2016, Vemi? was the official coach for the Serbian men's tennis team, for team Serbia, at the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro. The team consisted of world #1 Novak Djokovic, former #1 ATP doubles player Nenad Zimonjic and ATP top 30 player Viktor Troicki.

From August 2016 to 2017, Vemi? was the head coach for the most successful doubles team of all time, Americans Mike and Bob Bryan, also known as the Bryan brothers.

He then worked with Brandon Nakashima from May 2020[4] to February 2022.
