Croatian tennis player Ivan Dodig will have fond memories of his Wimbledon 2013 campaign. The 28-year-old Medjugorje-born right-hander has advanced through to the final of the doubles at Wimbledon. Dodig, who achieved a career-best last 16 in the men’s draw before losing to David Ferrer, has teamed up with Brazilian Marcelo Melo in the doubles and gone all the way to the final.
Dodig and Melo beat the experienced doubles specialist Leander Paes from Indian and his Czech Republic partner Radek Stepanek 3:6, 6:4, 6:1, 3:6, 6:3 yesterday to go through to this weekend’s final. The Croatian and Brazilian will face the famous number one-seeded Bryan brothers from the US.
