Nikola ?a?i? (Serbian Cyrillic: , pronounced [n?kola tâtit]; born 7 December 1990)[a] is a Serbian professional tennis player.[1] He has won 3 doubles titles in the ATP Tour, 3 doubles titles in the ATP Challenger Tour, as well as five singles and 36 doubles titles in ITF Futures tournaments.

Tennis career

2010-2015

?a?i? competed both in singles and doubles events, mainly on ITF Men's Circuit and ATP Challenger Tour level.

Having played alongside his compatriots, including Marko Djokovic, Ilija Bozoljac and Du?an Lajovi?, he has also taken part in three ATP World Tour main doubles tournaments held in Belgrade (in 2010 and 2012) and Umag (in 2012), where he lost in the opening rounds.

In the summer of 2014, after a series of successful appearances in Challenger tournaments played on a clay surface, and thanks to his first victory in three years in a Futures event, ?a?i? moved into the Top 300 and achieved his career-high ATP singles ranking of No. 281.

?a?i? did not participate in any tournament during the 2015 season due to injury, which caused a drop from both world singles and doubles rankings.

2016

He recorded his first win on ATP World Tour level in the first round of 2016 Croatia Open Umag, where he defeated Alja? Bedene in three sets, ranked 69th at the time.

2019

In the summer of 2019, he won his first ATP Challenger title at the 2019 Shkymkent Challenger with Yang Tsung-hua.

Later that year he won his first ATP tour level doubles title, alongside his compatriot Du?an Lajovi? at the 2019 Chengdu Open, edging out the number 4 seeds Jonathan Erlich and Fabrice Martin 7-6(11-9), 3-6, [10-3].

2020

In January 2020 he was part of Serbian team that won inaugural 2020 ATP Cup by defeating Spain in the final.

In February 2020 he won his second ATP tour title in Lyon partnering Mate Pavi?.

2021

In 2021, he partnered with Tomislav Brki? and won ATP Buenos Aires doubles title, which was only their second tournament as a team. After that they reached the finals of Andalucía Open and semi-finals at Serbia Open. Following these great result he entered the top 50 in doubles at a career-high ATP doubles ranking of No. 48 on 26 April 2021.

The pair also reached the quarterfinals of the 2021 French Open for their best showing in their careers defeating 4th seeds M. Granollers/H. Zeballos and M. González/S. Bolelli en route.
