Zagreb Challenger

Only know of two players on the entry list so far:

Ivo Karlovic
Goran Ivanisevic

This tournament is always one of the strongest challengers in the world so it should be interesting. And it is the only challenger with six full days of TV coverage (take that ESPN )

That entry list isn't anything close to that of 'the strongest Challengers' in the world. Maybe this year's entry list is relatively poor (yeah, good players are on the list, but the Bratislava Challenger is always better and in fact the Aix-en-Provence Challenger is much better too). But it's interesting; it's a pity you cannot watch it!

BEMELMANS | CHARDY | CHIUDINELLI
CIPOLLA| ROGER-VASSELIN | MCGEE

Re: Zagreb Challenger

yeah, this year it is pretty weak in comparison. but we've had some great players here, including beratasegui when he was 15th in the world . i remember gasquet and magnus norman being big names last year. also kratochvil, montanes, krajan (then in the top100), soderling, vinciguerra, vacek, c. rochus, d. norman, and vliegen

Re: Zagreb Challenger

I will go and watch it live

Although weather in a past few days is terrible

BTW. Marc Rosset asked for WC

Best of luck to my favourite players:

Marin Čilić Ivo Karlović Ivan Dodig Borna Ćorić

Rafael Nadal Juan Martin Del Potro Tomas Berdych

Proud supporter of Dodig / Melo in doubles

Re: Zagreb Challenger

Well, I would love to see Harel and Noam do well here. Can you find out which Doubles teams might be playing here?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
