In the grande finale we saw two players who have shown the most, Ante Vukomanović and Mario Sloup. Even though Mario played very well, Ante showed that he came to the tournament with only one goal, winning the 1st place. On the whole tournament, as well as in final, he haven’t lost a set. Finals ended with 6:3, 6:2.
Interesting to add is that Mario entered the tournament instead of last year winner, Robert Tudor, but haven’t succeed to repeat his success.
We hope we will see the two winners playing each-other next year!
