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 & eventual champion Rafael Nadal.

At the 2016 Argentina Open, Lajovi? reached quarterfinals defeating world No. 12 John Isner en route. He reached semifinals of the 2016 Brasil Open after beating top seed and world No. 20 Benoît Paire in the second round, that was his first tour-level semifinal appearance after losing all eight prior quarterfinals matches before in his career. This was followed by semifinal appearances at the Generali Open & Los Cabos Open.
In Indian wells, the Serbian defeated five opponents to reach the fourth round eventually losing to Pablo Carreno Busta. His contributions in successful Davis Cup ties against Russia & Spain, resulted in Serbia making the semifinal where he defeated Lucas Pouille but lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

At the Madrid Masters he defeated former top ten player Richard Gasquet in the second round, followed by a victory over world No. 6 Juan Martín del Potro, falling to world No. 8 Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinal.
