ZAGREB, 17th December – The best Croatian tennis players will be playing at PBZ Zagreb Indoors 2008 as it was confirmed at today's press conference.
The tournament, which will take place from 23rd February till 2nd March, in Dom Sportova hall, will host best Croatian tennis players: Ivan Ljubičić, Mario Ančić, Ivo Karlović and Marin Čilić, while one of three wild cards will be saved for Roko Karanušić, in case his ATP ranking will not make him possible to enter directly.
A complete list of players playing at the third edition of PBZ Zagreb Indoors 2008 will be made and concluded six weeks before the tournament starts (it means in the middle of January) what is according to the ATP rules.
Among the players who might be playing at the forthcoming tournament are Novak Đoković, Marat Safin, Richard Gasquet or Marcos Baghdatis, though their participation depends on their financial requests.
"What they asked for in the beginning is just too much, and our budget doesn't allow us that. Whoever wants to play at PBZ Zagreb Indoors 2008 is welcome, of course, but Croatian tennis players are the most important for us. Moreover, I hope that one of them will win the tournament eventually“– said Goran Ivanišević, the President of the Organizing Committee.

Zagreb has a tough spot in the calendar this year, right after Rotterdam and just before Dubai.
