Interview with 2016 Dubrovnik Dub Bowl Champions:


I heard that from Alexandra Eala who was champion under 11 in 2015. It made me want to play that. It was a nice place, tournament and a good organizer. I got a lot of friends and good experience. If i have a chance I want to go there again. Thank you so much.


I gained a lot of experience. Winning this tournament enabled me to participate in a tennis camp organized by famous tennis player Goran Ivanisevic. I expressed huge gratitude to organizers of this tournament especially to Mr. Pasko Barovic and all coaches at the Tennis Centre Dubrovnik. They were very professional to all atlethes and guests of the tournament. Special experience that will remain deeply eteced in my memory is a tour of the old town of Dubrovnik ad departure with cable car to Srđ hill where we done draw.


This is the greatest Tournament. The organizers were very kind. The children i played with, were very good. I felt like I was playing Grand Slam. Also I would like to thank Dubrovnik Dub Bowl staff for this great week of summer camp with Goran. I am really looking forward to next year.


The whole time i felt happy and loved by everyone. It was like i was playing an adult
tournament but being only 11 years old. I was very happy first time I stepped on the court and as time passed I became more and more confident of winning this tournament. The matches were very good and interesting. Finally, I’ve won the tournament and I was very happy. I got fantastic prizes, people from all over the world were congratulating me and I have got fantastic opportunity to be seven days in Goran Ivanišević Summer Camp. This was an amazing experience where I learned a lot from an amazing tennis player like Goran. We even had time to go to the beach, relax and then train with maximum power. I cant wait for the next Dubrovnik Dub Bowl, because it is the best tournament and feeling you can have.
