Viktor Troicki (Serbian Cyrillic : Виктор Троицки, pronounced  [ʋîktor troǐtskiː] ; born 10 February 1986) is a Serbian professional tennis player. He won his first ATP singles title at the 2010 Kremlin Cup, and his second and third ATP singles titles at the 2015 and 2016 Apia International Sydney. [5] His biggest achievement was career-high singles ranking of world No. 12 in June 2011, along with winning the deciding rubber in Serbia's Davis Cup final against France in 2010. Since then, every Davis Cup he's attended, he has contributed to Serbia resulting in a quarterfinal or better. He is known for his strong serve, which he can hit at up to 240 km/h (149 mph), and for serving a 12-month doping ban in 2013–14 for missing a drug test. [6]

The Serbian Cyrillic alphabet is an adaptation of the Cyrillic script for Serbo-Croatian, developed in 1818 by Serbian linguist Vuk Karadžić. It is one of the two alphabets used to write standard modern Serbian, Bosnian and Montenegrin, the other being Latin. In Croatian, only the Latin alphabet is used.

Tennis ball sport with racket and net

Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over or around a net and into the opponent's court. The object of the game is to maneuver the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return. The player who is unable to return the ball will not gain a point, while the opposite player will.

The 2010 Kremlin Cup was a tennis tournament played on indoor hard courts. It was the 21st edition of the Kremlin Cup for the men and was part of the ATP World Tour 250 Series of the 2010 ATP World Tour, and of the Premier Series of the 2010 WTA Tour. It was held at the Olympic Stadium in Moscow, Russia, from October 18 through October 24, 2010.

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 20

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 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).

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 semifinal

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.

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 overview

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).
