Andy Murray will take on top seed Ivan Ljubicic in the first round of the Zagreb Indoors, discuss here.

Andy Murray has been awarded a wild card into the main draw for the PBZ Zagreb Indoors tournament after Marat Safin turned down the invitation.
I'm just hoping Andy resumes his habit of winning first-round matches. Anything more is a bonus. Anything less is not a crisis.

 Goran Ivanišević, the deputy director and the president of the Organizing Committee, is very pleased to have Andy Murray in the tournament and considers him the 'future star of world tennis'.

Ivanišević said:
Earlier, we gave the first two wild cards to the Croatian Marin Čilić and the French Richard Gasquet. Now, we have finally decided to give the third wild card to the British Andy Murray.

 There was also a possibility of giving the third wild card to the Russian Marat Safin, but this proved unrealistic in the end. Safin only started training again two weeks ago, after not having played since August of last year due to knee injury. I had asked his manager whether there was any chance of his coming Zagreb, but Safin had to turn down the invitation. He said he was not ready yet.

I'm not too disappointed over this, because I think that Andy Murray is the future star of the world tennis. His participation will additionally boost the interest of the British media in the Zagreb tournament. Rest assured, if Murray plays against Henman, the match will be broadcast live by the BBC.

In the fourth press conference of the tournament, it was also revealed that Eurosport will broadcast most of the match on it's second channel and the finals, on Sunday 5th February, to be shown on the first.

Thats great that the BBC would show the Henman/Murray match if they played.  But what about Henman's and Murray's other matches, why don't they show them aswell?
