2013: Davis Cup runner-up & doping banEdit

Troicki won the Boodles Challenge, a warm-up to Wimbledon exhibition, defeating Robin Haase 7–5, 6–4 in the final. On 25 July 2013, Troicki was banned from playing tennis for 18 months, for failing to provide a blood sample at the Monte-Carlo Masters event.[9] However, the suspension was reduced on appeal to one year, meaning he could play from 15 July 2014. After the Court of Arbitration for Sport announced their decision, Troicki, who had hoped his suspension would be overturned, said that he has "no idea about what to do now or where to go. I hope somehow I will be able to fight back."[10]

Troicki lost in the second round of qualifying at the Shanghai Masters, however qualified for the main draw in 2014 Erste Bank Open, and ultimately made it to the semifinals before losing to eventual champion Andy Murray in straight sets. His form after returning to the ATP Tour meant his ranking rose from 847th in the world to a year-end ranking just outside the top 100, finishing 102.

2015: Second career title & return to top 20Edit

At the Apia International in Sydney in January 2015, Troicki defeated Gilles Müller 6–2, 6–4 in the semifinals en route to defeating Mikhail Kukushkin 6–2, 6–3 in the finals to capture his second career title. In the first ATP final in history featuring two qualifiers, Troicki dispatched Kukushkin in 64 minutes after breaking the Kazakh twice in each set.[11] This victory brought him 38 positions up on ATP ladder to the position of 54 prior to the 2015 Australian Open. At 2015 Australian Open he made it to 3rd round before being eliminated by world number 7 Tomas Berdych in straight sets.[12] In March, Troicki defeated young Croatian prodigy Borna Ćorić in 5 epic sets in round one of Davis Cup; Serbia would go on to win & progress to the quarterfinals. After defeating Marin Čilić on 14 June, Troicki played in the finals of Stuttgart Mercedes Cup versus Rafael Nadal. Troicki played very well but Nadal won in straight sets, 7–6, 6–3. His 2015 US Open campaign opened with a straight sets victory over Frances Tiafoe and a 3–1 win over Rajeev Ram.

2016: Third career title & 250th victoryEdit

 
Viktor Troicki at 2016 Erste Bank Open

In January, Troicki collected this third career title as well as defending his Apia Sydney International title, defeating Grigor Dimitrov 2–6, 6–1, 7–6(9–7). It was their second encounter in consecutive weeks with Dimitrov getting the better of him in three sets prior. At the Australian Open he equaled the previous years result making the 3rd round. In February, he was the runner-up at the Sofia Open. At French Open 2016 he made it to fourth round where he lost to previous year champion Stan Wawrinka 7–6(7–5), 6–7(7–9), 6–3, 6–2 after three hours of play. Troicki lost in the second round of the 2016 Wimbledon Championships to Albert Ramos-Viñolas. He was fined for the protracted verbal abuse of umpire Damiano Torella following Torella's overrule of a line call that resulted in a match point for Ramos-Viñolas.[13][14] Troicki lost the subsequent point and the match. At the Shanghai Masters, he finally defeated Rafael Nadal for the first time after six meetings.

2017: Second Masters quarterfinal & fourth Davis Cup semifinalEdit

He reached the third round at the Australian Open, losing to US Open champion Stan Wawrinka in four sets, narrowly missing a tiebreaker in the fourth to push for a fifth set. Two solid wins at the first round of the Davis Cup ensured Serbia would reached the quarterfinals for the seventh time in eight years. At the Davis Cup quarterfinals in April, a straight sets victory over world No. 19 Pablo Carreño Busta saw him record a personal best serve of 233 km/h. A doubles victory with Nenad Zimonjić ensured a fourth Davis Cup semifinal for him & his country.

Career overviewEdit

Troicki is a solid all-court player, who has won more matches than he has lost on each surface. However, one factor that has kept him from more success is his poor record against top-10 players (65 losses vs 10 wins in his career).
