Our story

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’ titleholders, 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.

Goran Ivanišević as tennis ambassador

 

Goran Ivanišević is one of the most famous Croatian sports brands. He is connected to the tournament in Umag in many different ways, but their most important connection is – friendship.

Even though he had just one opportunity to play in Umag during his professional career, his final against his namesake Prpić started everything for him at Stella Maris. After 1990 final, his career skyrocketed, and that year he ranked among the world's top 10 players for the first time. Today, years later, Goran is one of the people spreading Umag's feel-good vibrations throughout the tennis world. The performances at his favored exhibitions, his relationship with legends like Andre Agassi, and his warmth and efforts promote the tournament in the best way possible.
