Vice-governor of St. Petersburg Vladimir Kirillov warmly greeted guests of the evening and wished good luck to all participants of the tournament. He was followed by Thomas Karlberg, ATP Supervisor, who confessed that he had wanted to come to the tournament in St. Petersburg a while ago having heard so much positive feedback from the players. “They like the tournament and this party, that’s why many of them keep coming here,” Thomas Karlberg said.

After that Thomas Karlberg invited on stage Mikhail Youzhny, the participant of the tournament, who decided to retire from professional tennis this year. A little later the guests of the gala dinner watched a short film featuring career highlights of the holder of 19 ATP titles, including some cuts from the famous Davis Cup finals France vs. Russia, when Mikhail won the 5th winning point for his team.
