Veić received a wild card for Zagreb Indoors and caused an upset as he beat ex-Top 10 player Guillermo Cañas 4–6, 6–4, 6–2. Betfair started a private investigation immediately after the match following bets in total amount of $2M being placed on the Croat despite him being considered a huge underdog before the match. He issued a brief statement calling the allegations 'ridiculous and unfounded'. Veić continued his successful run following a 3–6, 7–6, 6–4 victory over Evgeny Korolev. It came to an end after he lost to fellow Croat Marin Čilić 6–2, 7–6.
