Of his 20 career ATP titles, 13 of them have come in three countries. He’s won five titles in his home country of Croatia (Zagreb in 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014, and Umag in 2012) and four each in Russia (St. Petersburg in 2011 and 2021, and Moscow in 2014 and 2015) and the United States (New Haven in 2008, Delray Beach and the US Open in 2014, and Cincinnati in 2016).
