Re: Ljubo to play in Zagreb

I'm sorry, but top 20 players should not be playing challengers.

Re: Ljubo to play in Zagreb

Anabel Medina Garrigues, WTA Top 50, is playing some ITF event in her home city too. I think players should when they want to.

It will give Ivan some time to spend with friends and family.

Re: Ljubo to play in Zagreb

Of course he can, but this is his way of giving something back to the Croatian crowd I'd say. They have a chance to see him in action now, other than in Umag.

Re: Ljubo to play in Zagreb

I guess other players won't fly to Zagreb. What for, if you know you can't win

Re: Ljubo to play in Zagreb

I think its good...to bring some fans in...and other players would be happy to take a stab at him on clay.

Re: Ljubo to play in Zagreb

from what i've heard ancic might be playing as well. i think the croatia tennis association is trying to make this into a tour level tournament (which would be amazing)

i haven't found the entry list yet, but on sport.hrt.hr they said that it was very strong. they also said that ivanisevic and boban are going to play an exo during the week.

Re: Ljubo to play in Zagreb

I don't personally have a problem with Ivan playing this, but I DO see the argument against top players playing Challengers, even in their home countries. For a lot of players, challengers are the only tourneys they can get into, so every time a top player plays one, it takes that spot away from someone who is really trying to make it and can't go play in a Masters event and get thousands in prize money even if they lose in the first round or getting appearance fees to play smaller events like Ivan and Mario and other players can get.
