Tennis career[edit]

2009[edit]

Veić received a wild card for Zagreb Indoors and caused an upset[1] as he beat ex-Top 10 player Guillermo Cañas 4–6, 6–4, 6–2. Betfair started a private investigation immediately after the match[2] following bets in total amount of $2M being placed on the Croat despite him being considered a huge underdog before the match.[3] He issued a brief statement calling the allegations 'ridiculous and unfounded'.[4] Veić continued his successful run following a 3–6, 7–6, 6–4 victory over Evgeny Korolev.[5] It came to an end after he lost to fellow Croat Marin Čilić 6–2, 7–6.[6]

2010[edit]

Veic qualified for the 2010 Australian Open Men's Singles draw, where he beat Daniel Köllerer of Austria 6–4, 3–6, 6–7, 6–1, 6–4. He fell to Gaël Monfils 6–4, 6–4, 6–4.
