I believe tennis enthusiasts are excited to count the days until the start of one of the most important sporting events of the season, the Blue Laguna Croatia Open Umag. The twenty-eighth edition of the prominent event is taking place from July 14th to July 23rd, at Stella Maris’s famous tennis complex. Here are some interesting programs that will surely increase your excitement.
Great Tennis Names
The winner of the tournament, Fabio Fognini, is returning to Umag and the famous Gael Monfils will try to take his title. Of course, our favorite Borna Ćorić is also coming! Another name is to be added to these big names guaranteeing top quality tennis from the first to the last day of the tournament, that of tennis player David Goffin, currently the 13th player in the world. In addition to the four stars, at Stella Maris we will enjoy seeing Kohlschreiber, Aljaza Bedene, Jiria Veselyja, Ivana Dodiga and Franka Škugora.
Spectacle of the Masters
Along with the regular tournament program, two Umag evenings are reserved for matches between former tennis masters which have already become the trademark of Croatia Open Umag. This year we expect a real sports treat since the main stars of the show will be three Wimbledon winners – Goran Ivanišević, Pat Cash and Richard Krajicek!
Gourmet and Party Program
As part of the overall sports event, all visitors can enjoy Party Nights, a music and entertainment program. The good atmosphere will be in the hands of Parni valjak, Hladno pivo, Željko Joksimović, as well as top DJs Redfoo, Throttle, R3hab and The Avener. The Umag Tennis Days will be completed by the Istria Gourmet Festival, where the famous restaurants, winemakers and olive growers will present a rich gastronomic offer and wine tastings under the name “The Hidden Charm of Istrian Wines”.
The new edition of Croatia Open Umag brings a pleasant surprise for lovers of fashion and of multimedia events – Fash!on live. The event is a fusion of fashion, theater and dance, and will be complemented by live performances by musicians. The author of the project is the choreographer Ivona Brnelić and the explosive fashion stories will be presented by Matija Vuica and Elfs. Otherwise, Vuica took care of this year’s design of the Umag hostesses’ uniforms.
Where is it always lively and filled with fun? At the Social Arena, of course! An outdoor gym, a golf simulator, a floating tennis court, a photo corner, promotional points, an Instagram Wall … Indeed, in Umag, every moment will be interesting and unforgettable!
