Zimonjic, Berankis Visit Historic Russian Village

St. Petersburg, Russia

Berankis, Zimonjic© Sergey NavetnyRicardas Berankis and Nenad Zimonjic were introduced to the historic way of life.

Ahead of opening their respective campaigns at the St. Petersburg Open, Serbia’s Nenad Zimonjic and Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis visited the Russian village of Shuvalovka on Monday. Shuvalovka replicates the traditional wooden architecture and countryside lifestyle of the XVIII and XIX centuries.

After learning about the historic way of life, Zimonjic and Berankis each painted a Matryoshka, a traditional Russian doll, which will later be auctioned with the proceeds going to charity.

Along with American Rajeev Ram, Nenad Zimonjic is the doubles top seed at this week’s St. Petersburg Open. In the first round of this ATP World Tour 250 indoor hard-court tournament, Ram and Zimonjic will face Italians Flavio Cipolla and Paolo Lorenzi. Meanwhile, the No. 89-ranked Berankis will open against Germany’s Philipp Petzschner in the singles.
