Novak Djokovic to Host First Ever ATP Tournament in Serbia

(This entry was originally posted in this blog on December 4, 2008 and the information is based on that time.)

Serbia has become one of the power in the tennis world over the last few years with some of its young generation tennis stars dominating the game in both men’s and women’s event. Novak Djokovic is the third ranked players of ATP ranking, while Jelena Jankovic is leading the WTA ranking and Ana Ivanovic is at the fifth position of the WTA ranking. Despite Serbia’s progress in the tennis world, the country has not hosted any ATP or WTA tournament yet.

Well, that is what is going to happen very soon. Novak Djokovic is going to host Serbia’s first ever ATP event in Many next year. Djokovic’s family has bought the official right to organize the ABN Amro Open which was earlier held in Netherlands.

IHT reported:

“After all the success of our players, we have managed to bring Serbia to the world map of tennis,” Djokovic said.

Another good news for the Serbian tennis fans is that Ana Ivanovic is also trying to host a WTA tournament in Serbia as soon as possible. The fifth ranked Ivanovic is now trying to buy a franchise for a WTA tournament which is expected to be organized next winter. No doubt, these tournaments will expose tennis broadly to the Serbian people and this will only be good for the future of tennis in Serbia.
