Held in Umag for more than 20 years, the Summer ATP Tournament is the climax of the tourist season in north-western Istria, and is one of the most important sports and social events in Croatia.
The town is then host to world-ranking tennis players, while the cream of society, journalists and reporters, sports experts and tennis aficionados spend time in and around the luxurious tennis complex Stella Maris.
The incontestable king of this tournament is Carlos Moya. Although he retired from professional tennis in late 2010, it will forever be recorded that of the 20 victories in his career, five were won in Umag, the town that made him an honorary citizen and that has many fond memories of him.
Many others have also passed through the Umag ATP tournament on their way to tennis fame: Thomas Muster, Guillermo Canas, Marcelo Rios, Filippo Volandri, David Ferrer, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Nikolay Davydenko, Novak Đoković, Ivan Ljubičić, and others.
Entertainment, concerts, evening parties and, since recently, the Festival of Istrian Culinary Delicacies Istria Gourmet
are part of the tournament festivities.
Do we need to say that the finals are a top attraction and that tickets are always in steep demand? You will find high state officials, celebrities and trendsetters among the spectators, and the cup is presented to the winner by the President of the Republic.
