they actually just tried a few days ago, but came up short against minsk in an attempt to get milan's spot. split wants to get the croatian indoors back up and running :D zagreb was also in the running

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.

yeah, rd is right. all the same players, especially moya, come to umag every year because it's a party all night on the beach. it would be the same thing in split :p

most towns in Croatia are ancient, even from roman times. what all doesn't help me loving Split and Sibenik so much - a big party on a promenade? why not! Croatia would be a 101% paradise on Earth if you didn't have stony but sandy beaches

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

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

they need something other then clay, considering that there best clay player is 16 years old.

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

no - Sopot has the worst schedule. we're even one week after you when no one thinks of clay seriously.

why is Czech a good option and better than Belgium? and serbia not a good option? serbia hasnt got a single atp event, i think it deserves one especially as there are quite a few up coming talents. and none of them are older than 21 yet. there is a demand for tennis events here, more and more people getting interested
