Re: Split to try to get an ATP tournament

Croatia perhaps having two events is stretching it, but it'd be popular.

Serbia should be the next country to get a main tour event, or the Czech Republic or Slovakia.

Re: Split to try to get an ATP tournament

changing the subject, i think Wroclaw in Poland deserves an extra ATP event.

Czech Republic is a good option. Am not too fond of Serbia & Montenegro, considering it would be better to have an event in Belgium.

Re: Split to try to get an ATP tournament

exactly. plus, it's obvious that croatia is a good host because despite being scheduled at the worst possible time for a clay court tournament, we still get a lot of top players to play and we fill up the stands from the first day of the tournament
