Sergiy Stakhovsky

PORTOROZ, July 18, 2018

The entry list of the Zavarovalnica Sava Slovenia Open has been revealed. The ATP Challenger hard-court event will be held in Portorož from 3 to 11 August 2018 and offers a total prize money of €64,000.

Defending champion Sergiy Stakhovsky will return to the Slovenian Adriatic seaside resort and spa town located in the Municipality of Piran. The World No. 116 from Ukraine beat Italy’s #NextGenATP player Matteo Berrettini in three sets in last year’s final.

Dennis Novak from Austria will also come to Portorož. The 24-year-old from Wiener Neustadt had a great run at this year’s Wimbledon by battling from the qualifying into the third round of the main draw. Novak is currently ranked on a career high World No. 130.

Gianluigi Quinzi leads a strong contingent of Italian players. The 22-year-old left-hander, who captured his first two ATP Challenger titles this year in Francavilla and Mestre, will be joined by Salvatore Caruso, 2015 Portorož champion Luca Vanni and Andrea Arnaboldi.
