Bloom won in his career total of four doubles title on the ATP Tour. He also starred in another one-two finale, as well as in three other finals in the individual competition. At Grand Slam tournaments he reached his best results with the second round in 1990 in singles at the U.S. Open and 1992 with the quarter-finals in doubles at the Australian Open.

He participated in a total of two Olympic Games: Seoul 1988 and Barcelona in 1992. In 1988 he went to both single and double with Amos Mansdorf. While he was already the Briton Jeremy Bates inferior in individual in the opening round just in five sets, he sat down with Mansdorf first against the Irish Owen Casey and Eoin Collins in four sets by. In the second round they lost then against the Danes Morten Christensen and Michael Tauson smooth in three sets. In 1992 he joined then only in the individual, where he first turned off the Slovaks Marián Vajda. In the second round, however, he remained completely chance against the top-seeded American Jim Courier.

Bloom denied between 1986 and 1995 a total of 17 matches for the Israeli Davis Cup team. Both his solo record with 10:17 as well as its double balance with 3:5 is negative.
