Lacko. Serbian Davis Cup captain, Nenad Zimonji?, planned to include Kecmanovi? as a fifth player for Serbia's 7-9 April Davis Cup quarterfinal tie versus Spain,[11] but as Kecmanovi? received a wild card for Panamá Cup Challenger, he instead chose to play in his first career challenger and lost in the first round to top seed and world No. 86 Horacio Zeballos in 3 sets, 6-2, 4-6, 2-6. He next played in San Luis Potosí Challenger in Mexico and had his first wins on the Challenger level after defeating 3rd seed and world No. 135 Stefan Kozlov in straight sets, Emilio Gómez in three sets and 7th seed Marcelo Arévalo in straight sets, before losing in the semifinals to 8th seed Adrián Menéndez-Maceiras.
