Viktor Troicki's first career title came in Moscow in 2010 and helped him attain a career-high ranking of No. 11. Troicki is also no stranger to winning big. He proved pivotal in his country’s victory over France in the 2010 Davis Cup final, taking the deciding match against France’s Michael Llodra 6-2, 6-2, 6-3, before a festive home crowd in Belgrade. In 2011, Troicki reached two singles finals, falling to Gilles Simon in the Sydney final and bowing to Davis Cup teammate Janko Tipsarevic, in the Moscow final. He concluded 2011 with a 40-26 record. On July 25, 2013, Troicki was hit with an 18-month ban by the International Tennis Federation for violating tennis' anti-doping program. Troicki failed to provide a blood sample when notified on April 15 that he had been selected to provide a urine sample and a blood sample at the Monte Carlo Masters event. Troicki provided a urine sample, but did not provide a blood sample until the next day. Troicki, who is one of the highest-profile players to be suspended for doping violation, is appealed the ban and said, "I am innocent. I have never ever taken any prohibited substance or ever thought of doing so." His sentence was reduced by six months. In June 2015, Troicki lost to Nadal in the finals of Stuttgart 7-6(3), 6-3.
