The message reads, in part:
“The Kremlin Cup is rightly considered to be a tournament with a rich history filled with unforgettable events, celebrities among its participants and their triumphs. And of course, many beginning tennis players made a name for themselves here in Moscow, and these traditional competitions laid their path to success and became an important stage in building their professional careers.
I want to take this opportunity to congratulate athletes and all tennis fans on a remarkable date – the 100th anniversary of the Russian Tennis Federation, which made and continues to make a huge contribution to the development and promotion of this wonderful sport in our country, and to the enhancement of international humanitarian cooperation.”
