In December 2012, he reached the finals in back-to-back tournaments at Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl, losing the first one (Grade 1 event) 6–0, 4–6, 5–7 to Cristian Garín despite leading 6–0, 4–1, but winning the latter more prestigious event (Grade A) over Elias Ymer 6–4, 6–4. This came after the recent passing of his mother Hajnalka. In May 2013, he played in the final of another Grade A event, Trofeo Bonfiglio, but lost to Alexander Zverev 6–7(5), 7–5, 5–7. Nevertheless, he reached a career high combined ranking of No. 3 on 27 May 2013.

Đjere made his ATP main draw debut at the 2013 PTT Thailand Open where he received entry to the main draw as a wildcard entrant. In the first round he lost to sixth seed Feliciano López. In June 2015, in the final of Czech Open challenger tournament in Prostějov, he lost to No. 2 seed Jiří Veselý (ranked No. 41 at the time), while beating three other top 80 players on his way to the final, No. 1 seed Martin Kližan, No. 6 seed Dušan Lajović, and No. 7 seed João Souza, respectively. In May 2016, he played in a Grand Slam main draw for the first time after getting through the qualifying draw at the French Open. He reached two challenger finals during the summer of 2016.
2017–2018: top 85Edit
In April 2017, Đere recorded his first ATP main draw win at the Grand Prix Hassan II over Martin Kližan, before losing to second seed Albert Ramos Viñolas. At his next tournament, the Hungarian Open, he reached his first ATP semifinal after defeating the likes of Daniil Medvedev, Viktor Troicki and Fernando Verdasco, before being defeated by Aljaž Bedene. He followed this with a quarterfinal at Istanbul Open, where he was defeated by Troicki. Following the successes on the ATP level, he played in challengers during the summer, winning one and reaching three other finals, which enabled him to break the top 100 for the first time on 24 July 2017 at No. 91. In September, Đere made his Davis Cup debut for Serbia in their 2017 semifinal clash against France, losing in straight sets to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. He finished the year ranked No. 88.
He had his ATP Masters 1000 debut at the 2018 BNP Paribas Open, where he was defeated by Tim Smyczek. He reached two ATP semifinals in 2018, Istanbul Open in May and Swiss Open Gstaad in July, where he defeated Borna Ćorić among others. He recorded his first Grand Slam main draw win by defeating Leonardo Mayer at the US Open, before losing to Richard Gasquet in the second round when he failed to convert all 12 of his break point opportunities. He next played a home tie against India in the Davis Cup World Group Play-offs, where he defeated Ramkumar Ramanathan in the opener for his first career win in a Davis Cup match and Serbia eventually won the tie 4–0. He followed this with a semifinal at a challenger event to reach a then-career high of world No. 83 on 24 September 2018.
2019: First ATP title, top 30Edit
In February, Đere won his first ATP title at the Rio Open, defeating Dominic Thiem in the process for the first top 10 win of his career and reached a then-career high ranking of No. 37. During the trophy presentation in Rio, Đere dedicated the title to his late parents in an emotional speech. He followed this with a semifinal in São Paulo to climb to No. 32. He next played in Indian Wells, where he was seeded for the first time in his career in an ATP event (despite being a wildcard entrant), receiving a first round bye and then defeating Guido Andreozzi for his first Masters 1000 win, before being defeated by countryman Miomir Kecmanović in the third round. A semifinal at the Hungarian Open saw him climb to a career high of world No. 29. He next reached the third round of Madrid Masters, where he defeated Juan Martín del Potro for his second top 10 win, before losing to Marin Čilić. Winning only one match at the Rome Masters (lost in round two to Basilashvili), coupled with a few withdrawals proved to be enough for Đere to be seeded at a Grand Slam for the first time in his career.
