The first tournament of the ATP World Tour calendar, this tournament has the massive privilege of being the starter to this new calendar year. They take place from the 3rd February of to the 9th of February.
Moreover, this privilege has been extended to the amazing city of Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. A focal point of culture and science, a city of green parks and a diverse set of building ranging from many historical ones to the new ones, this city is worthy of hosting a tournament of such a caliber.
Now let’s discuss the tournament itself. Coming to the tournament as the defending champion, now looking for a fourth time to win a fourth time, Marin Cilic is right now one of the best Croatian players in the Tennis World and wants to break records by winning this a fourth time.
But he has competition by people like Mikhail Youzhny and Ivan Dodig. Moving to the technicalities, this tournament has total prize money of about 426,605 Euros and will be played on Indoor Hard surfaces.
If things shape out as they usually do, this will be a tournament worth watching and keeping news of, being the first in the calendar.

The Association of Tennis Professionals Tour just began and Zagreb will be the first stop in Europe for these players. Croatia is certainly proud of its tennis players as Ivan Ljubicic took the very first trophy home for the PBZ Zagreb Indoors and more have followed such as Mario Ancic and Marin Cilic who battled each other for the title last year and Ljubicic was runner up in 2007 and in 2008. He's the second seed in the tournament this year and it should be a great game, and what looks like – from the seeds – another possible Croatian victory.
The top seed is Marin Cilic who won that battle last year and is now defending his title. He defended another one of his titles just recently with the Aircel Chennai Open earlier this year. The third seed in the tournament is Jurgen Melzer who was out the first round in last year's tournament and will be looking to better his run.

Watch the PBZ Zagreb Indoors live online via live streaming tennis here at www.watchlivetennis.org with membership from just €9.95 a year. The 2009 PBZ Zagreb is part of the ATP 250 series under the new ATP structure for 2009 and will be held in the dom sportova in Zagreb, Croatia on hard courts from February 2nd 2009 through to February 9th 2009. The winners of this year’s tournament receive 250 ATP Ranking points and a €450,000 cash prize.
Last years tournament shocked audiences when 'lucky loser' Sergiy Stakhovsky stunned local favourite and top seed for the tournament Ivan Ljubicic 7-5 6-4 to take the title. The 22-year-old Ukrainian was ranked 209th in the ATP rankings before the tournament and became just the fifth ever 'lucky loser' to win an ATP title. A 'lucky loser' is a player who is knocked out of the tournament in the final qualification round, only to enter the main draw after another has withdrawn, usually because of illness or injury.
Stakhovsky is outside of the main draw for this years tournament after the original cut off has been set at 80th place in the ATP rankings, with the Ukrainian at 92nd. Fellow finalist from last year Ivan Ljubicic is yet again one of the firm favourites for the tournament after reaching the final for the past three years. The Croatian crashed out of the Australian open at the hands of world number five Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round, but
will look to use the backing of the home crowd to reach yet another final in Zagreb.
Russian Igor Andreev comes into the tournament as the highest ranked player and after reaching two tournament finals last year is another good bet for Zagreb title. Other favourites for the title include Croatians Marin Cilic and Ivo Karlovic who also sit in the top 30 ATP rankings so far this year. Cilic had the best performance out of the Croatian representatives this year, reaching the fourth round where he lost out to world number eight Juan Martin Del Potro.
Last years doubles winners Paul Hanley and Jordan Kerr to defend their title, the Australian duo saw off fierce competition in the form of Christoper Kas and Rogier Wassen 6-3, 3-6, 10-8 in last years final, with Kas and Wassen also making a return to Zagreb.
