After a successful junior career and winning several tournaments, the Serbian was ready to try his luck and make the jump to the main tour. While utilizing the ITF Tour to gain his confidence amongst the men, 2013 was the year he turned pro and started to try his luck on the main ATP Tour.

His debut came at the ATP 250 event in Bangkok, where he ended up losing in the first round to seasoned pro Feliciano Lopez. For the coming few years, ATP appearances were few and far between for the Serbian, who proved to be comfortable at ITF and Challenger level but not quite able to hack it on the main circuit.

The following season was one that will forever live in the memory of the Serbian, who claimed his first ATP title. Not only was it his first, but it also happened to be at an ATP 500 event in Brazil, the Rio Open, seeing off opponents such as Dominic Thiem and Felix Auger-Aliassime.

A semifinal appearance the following week rounded off a great spell in Brazil as well as a promising start to 2019. These results were starting to show as well, with him breaking into the Top 30 in the world later that season.

Djere's title success did not stop there. The following season, he won his second in Sardinia. The Serbian has now fully and comfortably established himself in the Top 50 and is undoubtedly targeting more titles.
