Professional career


Dabul's climb in the professional ranks was a slow one, not indicative of his status as a former No. 1 Junior player. He broke into the top-500 in 2003, the top-300 in 2004, but did not crack the top-200 until late in 2007, finishing that year ranked No. 159.


Dabul continued his slow, steady rise in 2008. In March, he reached his career-high in doubles of #88 with some good Challenger results, and then followed that up with a singles Challenger win in San Luis Potosí to reach a career-high in singles of No. 133. Three semi-final appearances in his next 4 Challengers got his ranking to No. 114 by May, but he failed to qualify into the 2008 French Open.

In 2009, he won a 7–5 victory over World No. 1 Rafael Nadal in an exhibition match. This match, which took place on the eve of the French Open, occurred when Nadal had a win-loss record of 28–0 at the French Open.

Dabul reached the third round of the 2010 Indian Wells Masters, defeating No. 16 seed Gilles Simon en route and losing to eventual champion Ivan Ljubicic.


Dabul announced his retirement in 2012 due to an injury in his back.[1]
