In addition to classic tournament matches, the visitors will also be able to see two special events. The tournament will open with an exhibition match between tennis aces Goran Ivanišević and Andre Agassi, twenty four years after their legendary Wimbledon match in 1992., which Agassi won.
The second exhibition match will be on Wednesday, July 20th, between Flavia Pennette, the 2015 US Open winner and Donna Vekić, the Croatian who is a four-time WTA finalist. We should note that tennis is one of the few sports where female players are as popular and earn as much as their male counterparts, mostly due to the relatively long tradition of professional female tennis players – women have played at Wimbledon since 1880.
The Konzum Croatia Open is also known for its rich and varied music program. From Jelena Rozga and Halid Bešlić to Elemental, Vatra and the popular French DJ Martin Solveig – there truly will be something for everyone!
Lovers of fine food will enjoy the lush offer of the most exquisite Istrian culinary delights and will also be able to taste many fine local wines.
