After long periods of discussion, Novak Djokovic has announced a line-up of players, a list of locations, and more details for the Adria Tour.
The Adria Tour will consist of four two-day events across four Balkan nations including Belgrade, Zadar, Montenegro, and Banja Luka. However, the stops in Montenegro and Banja Luka have not yet been officially confirmed due to a lack preparedness.
“Bosnia and Montenegro are still not 100 percent as the hosts of the final two legs because we haven’t had enough time to prepare the infrastructure,” Djokovic said.
And, this isn’t only exciting because we will see more tennis back, but also because Djokovic has secured some big names to play in the tournament. Among these are Australian Open runner-up Dominic Thiem, Australian Open semifinalist Alexander Zverev, and World No. 19 Grigor Dimitrov.
“I am delighted that Dominic Thiem, Grigor Dimitrov and Alexander Zverev will be my guests,” Djokovic told Serbian press at Belgrade. “The three big names, they will all play in the opening leg in Belgrade. Zverev might play in Croatia too, while Dimitrov could appear in Croatia and in Montenegro.”
Additionally, Top 200 players Viktor Troicki and Damir Dzumhur are set to play a round-robin competition through the first three stops. Then, the entire Adria Tour will culminate in an exhibition match between Novak Djokovic and the Bosnian Dzumhur.
Proceeds from the tournament will go to humanitarian projects in the Balkan regions, including the Novak Djokovic Foundation.
