May 17, 2019 – In anticipation of the list of players to be released next week, a program of events for the only WTA tournament in this part of Europe – the Croatia Bol Open – was presented.

“Our tournament has so far proved to be the right place for players to leap in their career since every winner of the tournament managed to break into the Top 100,” said Feliks Lukas, director of the tournament last week in Milan.

The significance of the tournament was recognized in the context of the promotion of Croatia, and in cooperation with the Croatian Tourist Board, it was presented to the leading Italian media in the premises of the tennis club A. Bonacossa. 

The Croatia Bol Open and the destination itself were presented by the mayor of Bol, Tihomir Marinković, the director of the Bol Tourist Board, Markito Marinković, the director of the HTZ representative office in Milan, Viviana Vukelić, and the director of the tournament Feliks Lukas. The unique story of the beautiful Bol, the BlueSun Zlatni Rat Tennis Center, and the sports and entertainment program of the competition intrigued those involved in Italian sports and the general public, as is evidenced by the fact that the WTA Croatia Bol Open story was last week published in the Gazzetta dello Sport.

Combing the unique characteristics of the destination and the tournament is continuously a reason many tennis players return to Bol each year, such as A. Krunić, T. Zidansek, P. Hercog, M. Minella, who we can expect to return this year to fight for the prize and 160 WTA points. 

It is well known now that the director of the tournament will invite FED Cup representatives Jana Fett and Teni Lukas, while the remaining two will be announced before the start of the tournament. On the list of 250 tennis players, there are 16 in the Top 100 and the list ends with the 116th best tennis player in the world. Up to 26 players can enter the tournament directly, while 145 are on the waiting list.

The tournament begins on June 3rd with the draw and Player’s party. The first round will be played on Tuesday, and the big news this year is the introduction of night matches. Namely, night games in the first round will be played at 20:30 on the Central court, while Sunday’s finals will begin at 20:05. For those who can’t make it to Bol, you can enjoy a direct transfer on your television screens thanks to the second program on HTV.

However, the entertainment on the Central court this year will begin an hour earlier, from 19:00, when Nina Badrić will take the stage of the WTA Croatia Bol. The closing ceremony of this year’s tournament will feature top pianist Lola Astanova, one of the world’s best piano talents. 

Furthermore, the organizers have announced klapa Šufit and Kambi on the Friday of the tournament, and on June 8, the star of Saturday night will be Niki Belucci, who will perform at the Varadero club.
