Pro tour

At the 2010 Australian Open, he lost in the second round to World No. 2 and defending champion Rafael Nadal 2-6, 2-6, 2-6.[2] At the 2010 French Open, he played and won the longest match of his career in the first round against American Michael Yani with the score at 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 7-6, 12-10. The 4-hour, 56-minute match stretched over the course of two days, and tied the record for the most games played in the Open Era at the French Open.[3]

Lacko continued his 2nd round streak in 2010 majors by defeating the 24th seed Marcos Baghdatis in four sets. He then lost a very tight five set 2nd round match against Jérémy Chardy.

Lacko played in the 2010 Atlanta Tennis Championships and upset former World No.1 Lleyton Hewitt 6-2, 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals.[4]

At the 2011 Qatar Open, he lost in the second round to Rafael Nadal, despite achieving the rare feat of winning a set against Nadal 6-0.[5]

He reached his first singles ATP final in Zagreb 2012, where he lost to Mikhail Youzhny in straight sets. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, he lost in the first round in the men's singles, and in the first round of the men's doubles with Martin Kli?an.[6]

At the 2014 French Open he lost in the first round to Roger Federer.
