Tournament in the 29th edition continues Umag tennis history

 

Over the years, Umag has become one of the most recognizable tennis venues on the ATP World Tour, and the tournament in Umag has had the privilege of seeing some of the biggest tennis players in the history of the sport grow up on its courts. Consequently, the list of Umag champions includes former no. 1 players, multiple Grand Slam champions, Masters tournaments’ title holders and Davis Cup winners.

For years, the tournament has also supported many homegrown tennis players. Unlike many other events around the world that are in the same category as Umag, so far, Plava Laguna Croatia Open has handed its invites to Croatian players in 80 percent of all cases. Thus, over the years, these invites have enabled players such as Ivan Ljubičić, Željko Krajan and Borna Ćorić to achieve their first big successes.
