“It is the best day of my life,” said Damir Dzumhur, the winner of the international tennis tournament St. Petersburg Open 2017 after the final match, which took place last week in the city on the Neva river. For the past few years, Government of St. Petersburg has been trying to host various events and develop sports tourism in every possible way. Not everything has gone well, but thanks to sponsors’ support, it is the third time after a two-year break (annual event from 1995 until 2013) the city hosts men’s professional tennis tournament, which is part of the ATP World Tour 250 series, at “Sibur Arena” with prize fund $1,000,000. Moreover, at the beginning of 2018, citizens and guests of the Northern Capital will be able to watch women's competitions – St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy.
