Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik said yesterday that everything will be ready for the tennis tournament Srpska Open which is the biggest sports event in Srpska and BiH after the Olympics.
“I was here ten days ago and now I see that builders are finishing the work. The tennis court is ready and there is enough time for everything to be finalized,” Dodik told reporters in Banjaluka after visiting the construction site of the tennis complex for the Srpska Open tournament.
He says that the interest in the tournament is huge and that Banjaluka and Srpska are getting a significant sporting event.
“We are very honored to have the opportunity to organize this tournament.
Everything we have done is proof of our ability and skill, even though the construction deadlines were short. We have built a great complex that will remain in Banjaluka and at the disposal of Srpska’s sports community,” Dodik said.
