For the first time in its history, the city of Mostar has the honor to host the national team of BiH in Davis Cup.
Davis Cup is one of the oldest and the most distinguished world's competitions, and the City of Mostar also has a long tradition of tennis playing.
Even at the beginning of the last century the tennis was played in Mostar. The first tennis court was opened in early 1901 and only a few years later, in 1907, Milos Komadina established a first tennis club in Mostar.
The same year a first men's tournament was played and the winner was presented with a specially engraved gild cigarette case, which is the most valuable preserved document on the history of tennis in Mostar and Herzegovina.
The organization of this match is a presentation of tennis as a sport, tennis club Mostar and our city as a host, since the matches from Mostar will be in the focus of national and international sports public.
As Mayor of Mostar I wish you all a pleasant stay in Mostar, as well as a lot of sports luck in competitions.
I truly believe that a positive message and image will be sent from Mostar as those days Mostar will live in the sign of the Davis Cup.
I hope that our city and this sports event will remain in a good and lasting memory of all the guests, competitors and ITF representatives.
Mayor of Mostar
