The curtains were brought down on a fantastic tennis tournament in Banjaluka, the Srpska Open. After
the match between Srpska Open winner Dusan Lajovic and Andrey Rublev, tournament director Djordje
Djokovic addressed the audience.
“Thank you for coming in so high numbers. We have sent an exceptional image to the world. Banjaluka
was a world tennis hub. You have made this event special. I would like to thank all the people who have
put their lives aside to organise this event: the president, the mayor, everyone involved”, Djordje Djokovic
There is no doubt that Banjaluka justified the expectations, which is why everyone agrees that the
tournament should be organised in Banjaluka again next year.
“We’ll do everything in our power for the Srpska Open to return to Banjaluka. Our chief supervisor gave
us the highest grades, he facilitated the procedure, although there was some skepticism. No one believed
we would be able to organise this tournament. And we would not be praised if the spectators hadn’t
packed the stadium every day. We want to return here and maintain the tradition, for the Srpska Open to
have a long life”, Djokovic concluded.
