Two Futures semifinals and a final, qualifying into 3 ATP events, and qualifying into and winning a match in a top-level Challenger moved his ranking back into the top-300 in mid-April. He then reached the semifinal of a top-level Challenger in Bermuda in April and qualified into the main draw of the French Open in May, where he lost in four sets to eventual third-rounder Janko Tipsarevi?. In August, a semifinal performance in a top-level Challenger in Segovia followed by a finals appearance the next week in a Challenger in Binghamton pushed his ranking back into the top-200 for the first time since he was there for two weeks in 2004, and was his highest ranking since May 1998, when he spent 5 weeks in the top-200.

In 2008, Vemi? competed in World Team Tennis with the Kansas City Explorers entry, which narrowly lost the league championship to the New York Buzz.

In 2016, Vemic coached Djokovic at the ATP Miami Open, where he won the Championship against Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-3, and surpassed Roger Federer in career prize money earnings.

In January 2013, Vemi? joined the coaching staff of the Serbian Davis Cup team, seeing it to the Davis Cup finals against Czech Republic. He remains a coach of the Serbian team, helping lead them through the 2016 Davis Cup World Group competition.
