Karlovac will never happen
I would go with Dubrovnik on hard during the summer.
Ana Konjuh Open
If they could make it somewhere close to city it could be great.
Other than Dubrovnik, I would also like something like Zadar or Pula(Arena would be fantastic, if they could have done ice for hockey there..)
But it now seems its official we have WTA challenger at Bol next year.
But 2nd week of Roland Garros? Who will come? All Croats will probably skip and work for grass. I really want Miki there, hope it somehow happens.
Martic, Fett, Lekaj, Lukas, Njiric, Jurak will surely be there.. but we need Ana, Miki, Donna..
Dubrovnik is too cramped and has no real tennis facility, especially for a serious tournament (which is also why Ana's been in Zagreb for ages now). Also, it's far away for many fans (even some of us from Croatia - I'd need like an 8-hour drive...) and most tourists that visit Dubrovnik get there on cruise ships and spend very little time in the city itself, certainly not enough to include tennis matches into their visit. But then, when you see some cities that actually had tournaments, makes you think it could even work.
Arena in Pula sounds cool, but apart from an exhibition of some sort, it probably wouldn't work. Conservation experts would probably object, God knows what the WTA itself would say about it and, besides, you need more than one court for a tournament so unless there are some right next to Arena...but it sure sounds fun
Zadar, on the other hand, sounds interesting, but I'd prefer one tournament that's not on the coast now that we've lost Zagreb, because we have probably the most ridiculously shaped land territory in the human history.
As for Bol, I share the same fear, that it could turn into something really lousy, unless all of our girls bomb out early in Paris in both, singles and doubles (which would be lousy in itself). Yeah, watching Miki in Bol again would be like a dream come true, and I'd definately go, but we all know what are the chances for that to happen. Anyway, depending on the field, I might as well still go there. This year in that slot (2nd week of the French) there was a 100k challenger in Marseille and it featured the list that included Kanepi, Niculescu, Maria, Hercog, Krunic, Allertova, Rodina and Parmentier as the seeds, with the field also hosting Sasnovich, Hesse, Tig, Zanevska, Voegele, Tatishvili, Bondarenko, Panova, Duque-Marino, Hogenkamp, Muhammad, Cepede Royg, Dominguez Lino, Cepelova, Vickery, Abanda...could be interesting if we'd get something similar with a few of our own.
