As Dominic Thiem picked up his second career title today beating Joao Sousa, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic watched on from the stands in Umag.
Thank you for a warm welcome! It was nice to see you all again. I have wonderful memories from Umag! https://t.co/oBohcIejvQ

“Today was very special day. We were watched by world’s number one Novak Djokovic,” Thiem said. “Usually he is the one who entertains us with great tennis and today we turned it around.”
Following his third Wimbledon title, Djokovic was on vacation in Croatia and decided to stop by the event he last played in 2006 retiring to Stan Wawrinka in the final.
“I came in the name of all distant memories, now that I’m here as a spectator in a shirt, I’m starting to get nostalgic,” Djokovic said. “I’m drawn by the tennis, the racket is calling to me. Before I finish my career I’ll definitely come back and play another tournament in Umag.”
Djokovic also posed with Croatian president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
