    The jubilee 25th edition of Croatia Open has been marked by a plethora of turning points, surprises and uncertain matches. The most memorable was, of course, the tournament winner Pablo Cuevas from Uruguay, who started off as a qualifier and fought his way all the way to the final where he defeated the title defender Tommy Robredo. That is his second tournament title in a row and 13th victory in a row, which he never managed to achieve in his long career. It is important to mention that Cuevas is only the second qualifier in the history of the tournament who managed to make it to the final and win.
    The local fans were surely thrilled by the excellent matches played by the young Borna Ćorić, who proved to be a very tough opponent for Fabio Fognini in the quarterfinals, thus showing his vast talent and mental fortitude rarely seen in young players. Marin Čilić has played several impressive matches, thus showing that he is well on the way back to the world's Top 10. He reached the semifinal and confronted Tommy Robredo in a match that was labeled a "final before the final".

    Spain's Tommy Robredo, Italy's Fabio Fognini and France's Gael Mofils marked the 24th edition of the tournament. Fognini arrived in Umag in top form, after winning his first ever two tournaments. On his way to the finals he even beat Monfils in an extremely exciting and interesting match. Nonetheless, his winning streak of 13 straight matches was snapped rather convincingly by Robredo, who defeated him in straight sets 6:0, 6:3 after a nearly perfect final match at the packed Umag Stadium. Following a last-minute cancellation by the Croatian title defender Marin Čilić, the country's tennis was represented by Antonio Veić and Joško Topić as well as juniors Mate Pavić and Borna Ćorić, the former putting up quite a fight to Monfils in the first round.
