In its second consecutive year, the Dubrovnik Summer Tennis camp gave kids the chance to learn some skills from the legend of Croatian tennis. Ivanisevic, together with a number of other coaches, put 18 kids from all over world through their paces in the week-long camp. This year there were kids from the USA, Sweden, Ukraine and Bosnia and Herzegovina in Dubrovnik hoping to learn something from the man who was once ranked number 2 in the world.

Ivanisevic hopes that the camp grows larger in the future and more kids take up the sport of tennis in Croatia. “We Dalmatians are very talented with a ball, so I hope it remains that way,” said Goran.
