“Drummer Marko Duvnjak and I are preparing a great show and a wonderful concert that was well received by the Chinese audience, and I believe that the audience in Umag will also like it. I am looking forward to play as part of the tournament, and I played in Istria many times and I am bound by the beauties of this part of Croatia. Unfortunately, this is only my second time in Istria since the beginning of the pandemic, and that is why tonight's concert makes me even happier. The organization is great, it is a real pleasure to be in Umag and I invite everyone who can come to join us, it will be a great concert.” - said Ana.
Ana's performance starts after the end of the evening matches and will last until 2 hours after midnight. Although this is Ana's first appearance as part of the Umag tournament, revealed to us that there is a secret connection between her and tennis.
“As a child, I used to play tennis for fun, I used to play on the tennis wall in Maksimir for hours. Tennis is by no means an unfamiliar sport to me; I hope to have the opportunity to see a few matches in the tournament. Although they are incompatible at first glance, there are certain similarities between classical musicians and professional athletes as they both have to spend their entire lives perfecting their skills and giving up a lot. There is definitely a connection between classical music and sports, and the audience in Umag will see that today.” - she said as she announced today's concert with Marko Duvnjak, which then continues with performances in Croatia, and in the fall in Italy and Ukraine.
The quarterfinals matches are being played at the Plava Laguna Croatia Open Umag today, and the audience can see them from the stands of the Goran Ivanišević ATP Stadium.
