The Croatia Open is a tennis tournament which forms part of the 250 series ATP Tour. Held since 1990 with its beginnings as the Yugoslovia Open, this men’s singles and doubles event takes place in Umag Stadium and routinely welcomes around 100,000 visitors to its matches and satellite events. Last year Italian Fabio Fognini triumphed over local favourite Andrej Martin in two sets to clinch the title. Can he return to Umag to successfully defend his crown and take his share of the €426,000 prize fund? As one of the oldest Croatian tennis events, the organisers have certainly found the winning ingredients to put together an exciting and varied tournament. In addition to the top-class tennis, you can enjoy a creative programme of musical entertainment and culinary delights.
