Dušan Lajović (Serbian Cyrillic: Душан Лајовић; born 30 June 1990) is a professional tennis player from Serbia.

Tennis career[edit]

Lajović reached his highest individual ranking on the ATP Tour on 3 February 2014, when he became World No. 101. For a long time, he primarily played on the Futures circuit and the Challenger circuit. In 2011 he qualified for the Kremlin Cup, and lost in the first round of the main draw. In the 2011 St. Petersburg Open, he reached the quarter finals. In 2012, he began working with a new coach, Boris Bošnjaković, played in the Davis Cup for the first time, reached the finals of 2012 Orbetello Challenger and won the 2012 Samarkand Challenger. Replacing an injured Janko Tipsarevic, he played two live rubbers in the 2013 Davis Cup final, including the deciding rubber against Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic. He was defeated comfortably in both but was praised by team-mate Novak Djokovic for how he coped with the big occasion. His first appearance in main draw of grand slam was at 2014 Australian Open and he reached 2nd round where he lost to Kei Nishikori. He bettered this at the 2014 French Open by reaching the fourth round where he was beaten in straight sets by world number one, Rafael Nadal.
