Bad Day for Croatian Tennis

Today Karolina Šprem (Karolina Sprem), 18-year old tennis player from Varaždin, was knocked out of Wimbledon. But this isn't the worst thing that happened to Croatian tennis today.

Few weeks ago I was thinking about making a day trip to Bol, small resort town on island of Brač (Brac), watch WTA tournament and later share my experience with fellow bloggers. Little did I know that was my last chance to visit Bol WTA tournament.

Today Antun Plenković (Antun Plenkovic), general manager of Bol WTA tournament, announced that the tournament won't be held in 2004. He failed to get 40,000 US$ from "Zlatni rat" tourist resort company, tournament's main sponsor, and thus the players would use the next year's time slot in Cincinnati. Plenković hopes that he could restart tournament in 2005.
