Goran will already be watching the matches at the ATP stadium that bears his name, and where all the matches of the main tournament are played. Our favorite “Rabbit” is satisfied with the strength of this year's 31st edition of the tournament, and he is especially happy that Croatian tennis players are competing in the main part of the tournament.
“I am really looking forward to coming to Umag, summer is not a real summer for me without this week at the Stella Maris resort. I am most interested in Croatian players, Serdarušić, Ajduković, Sabanov brothers, but also young lions Carlos Alcaraz and Holger Rune. With Gasquet, Krajinović, Lajović and Bedene, we will watch fantastic tennis.”
20 years after winning Wimbledon, Goran once again made history by becoming the first Croatian to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Although the impressions are still settling, Goran does not hide how much this great recognition of the world tennis family means to him:
“This was a special evening for me and my family. Everything got a special meaning and I believe that I ended my playing career with this in the best possible way. I thank everyone for their support and messages, there were a million of them.”
Umag will become the center of Croatian tennis this summer as well, thanks to the Plava Laguna Croatia Open, which will bring together famous names from world tennis.
