Viktor Troicki revealed that this year will be his last as a professional tennis player, according to the site Ubitennis. At 35, the Serbian tennis player who became 12th in the world in 2011 has established that he will play one more tournament before ending his career.
Winner of three ATP titles and even capable of reaching the round of 16 (3 at Roland Garros and 2 at Wimbledon) in Grand Slams tournaments, he plans to dedicate himself to being a professional coach And he already took his first steps months ago, when he was appointed, for example, as captain of the Serbian Davis Cup team.
Two years after reaching the highest position of his career, the Serbian found himself on the sidelines after being suspended for a doping offense. Troicki was initially given an 18-month suspension for refusing to take a blood test before a successful appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) reduced it to 12 months.
In Masters 1000 events, Troicki made it to the Monte-Carlo semi-finals in 2009 and then to Madrid the following year. But that was more than a decade and to this day he still hasn’t won a main draw match at any ATP tournament so far this year.
