May 23, 2020 - The regional tennis tournament "Adria Tour," which will feature Novak Djokovic and other world aces, may be held on June 27 and 28 on the tennis courts of Porto Montenegro.
No one has officially confirmed this information yet. But, if it is known that Porto Montenegro has four quality tennis courts and that Novak had a berth for his yacht in the marina Porto Montenegro, there are high chances that it will be realized, writes Radio Tivat.
Novak Djokovic, the best tennis player in the world, gathered top aces who will present themselves to the audience at the regional "Adria Tour" event from June 13 to July 5.
"Adria Tour" will be held in cities across the Balkans, and the first tournament starts from Belgrade, on the grounds of TC Novak (June 13/14), and then moves to Zadar (June 20/21), then to Montenegro (June 27/28) and in Banja Luka (July 3/4). It is planned to go also to Sarajevo, on Sunday, July 5, where Novak and Damir Džumhur will play an exhibition match.
In addition to Djokovic, who will play all tournaments, the biggest star of this sporting event will be 26-year-old Austrian Dominik Theim, the third-best tennis player on the planet, triple grand slam finalist, winner of 16 ATP cups, including one of the Masters 1000 series in Indian Wells.
Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov also confirmed participation in the "Adria Tour" in Belgrade, a tennis player whose career-best was ranked third and is currently the 19th player in the world. He has won eight singles titles in his career so far and is one of the best competitors from this area.
More big names from Europe have announced their arrival at a charity tournament designed to raise funds for humanitarian projects across the region, including the Novak Djokovic Foundation's Early Childhood Development and Education programs. At the same time, the wish of the organizers is to help tennis players get back in shape and competitive rhythm due to the coronavirus situation.
The system that will be applied is "Round Robin," which means that everyone will play with each other in two groups of four players each. Specifically, on Saturday, each tennis player will have two matches, and on Sunday, another game in the group, and then the finals will be played between the two best. It is planned to be played on two won sets, up to four games.
In case the presence of the audience is enabled, tickets will be available for two sessions per day, and the dates will be announced later. Doubles will complement the program with celebrities, as well as tennis events for children. All matches will be broadcast on Sportklub television channels, and pictures from the region will go around the world, writes the Aktuelno.me portal.
If the tournament were to take place in Tivat, it would be a big event and a new free advertisement for Porto Montenegro, Tivat, and Montenegro, which is very close to becoming a corona free destination, concludes Radio Tivat.
