This year’s Tennis Challenger ‘Srpska Open’ is a jubilee, 20th , and on the occasion of this great anniversary, ATP representative Josh Meiseles, presented tournament director Draško Milinović with a suitable gift.

In his speech, Meiseles remembered the late Milan Radaković, founder of the challenger in Banja Luka, and thanked the President of the Republika Srpska Tennis Association,
Draško Milinović, for everything that makes this prosperous tradition continue and the tournament improve.

“As a professional tennis tournament with the longest tradition in Bosnia and Herzegovina, this event has become a beacon for all sports in this region and the entire
challenger tour. ATP is proud to celebrate 20 years of successful tournaments from the Challenger Tour series in Banja Luka. We are honoured to be on this journey together,
as well as a part of your success”, said Meiseles and added:

“I would like to thank the Tennis Association of Republika Srpska for this legacy of this tournament. Your dedication to the development of tennis in Banja Luka has been
recognised for a long time. This moment would not be complete without the hard work and commitment of all volunteers, tournament staff, sponsors and everyone from the
Tennis Association of the Republic of Srpska and the Tennis Club Mladost.

All the players who were given the opportunity to advance in their careers owe you a gratitude for the passion and professionalism with which you have guided this
tournament as a host, and for your commitment to this sport and the Challenger Tour.
The Challenger Tour is a turning point towards success for future stars, and this tournament has shown exactly that in the successful careers of Felix Auger Aliassime,
Diego Schwartzman, Fabio Fognini and Janko Tipsarević. All of them competed in Banja Luka before they entered the top 10 players in the world – said Josh Maiseles.

Draško Milinović, director of the Srpska Open challenger, thanked ATP for the gift, and presented Mr. Maiseles with an award as a sign of gratitude for successful cooperation
in the last 20 years.
