Orbán angling for tennis tournament

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is reportedly interested in obtaining the organising rights for a tennis tournament partly owned by Romanian former tennis player and businessman Ion Tiriac.

Tiriac said Orbán had offered €6 million for him to give up the Geneva tennis tournament which is held a week before the French Open.

The rights to host the tournament are jointly owned by Tiriac and a former German tennis player, Zoom reports.
