September 18, 2018

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the 23rd St Petersburg Open International Tennis Tournament.

The message reads, in part:

“This large-scale competition has been held for over 20 years and has always drawn the genuine and sincere interest of numerous tennis enthusiasts. This tournament traditionally brings together both strong and experienced players, the true international sports stars, and young athletes who are happy to demonstrate their talent, their extraordinary potential and ambition in achieving performance goals to their rivals and spectators.

I am certain that this tournament will be a success and will leave the participants and guests with memories of honest and thrilling matches and inspiring victories. Naturally, it will contribute to the further development and promotion of tennis in our country.”
