ATP Tour To Return To Belgrade In 2021, Following Budapest Relocation
Event previously held in Serbia from 2009-2012
The Hungarian Open, an ATP 250 clay-court tournament hosted in Budapest from 2017-2019, has been approved for relocation to Belgrade, Serbia from 2021.
Typically staged in April as part of the European clay-court swing, the event was suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The relocation, approved by the ATP Board of Directors in January 2021, will see the event held in Belgrade as the Serbia Open under a lease agreement between license owner Ion Tiriac, and new event organisers Tara 2016s, led by Tournament Director Djordje Djokovic.
Belgrade has previously hosted an ATP 250 event, from 2009-2012, twice won by current World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. The 2021 event is due to take place from 19-25 April.
