The Croatian capital Zagreb has lost its only ATP tennis tournament…
After 10 years the ATP PBZ Zagreb Indoors is leaving town. The ATP has moved the indoor tournament in that (1 – 7 February) to Sofia in Bulgaria after signing a 3-year contract.
The Zagreb tournament, which has seen Croatian stars Marin Čilić, Ivan Ljubičić, Ivan Dodig, Ivo Karlović and Borna Ćorić, as well as international names such as Novak Đoković, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka play, will be a big loss to the city. Financial reasons are reported to be a factor in the decision.
“We bought CNN to Zagreb, with Zagreb shown on TV in 5 continents in over 160 countries. Organisers and partners created an event which will be talked about for a long time. It was the pride of Zagreb,” a statement from organisers said today.
