Arrow Hopman Cup

For anyone who is in Australia I heard some gossip that both Kim and Lleyton are coming to the Hopman Cup in Perth, Western Australia!
I would like to know your opinion, would you prefer Australia and Belgium to be in the same group or in opposite groups?
(For those of you who may not know the Hopman cup is where eight nations come together to play each other in a round robin format. There is 2 groups, group A and group B. The nation with the most wins in group a and group b play each other in the final!)

Imagine what the mixed doubles would be like Kim Vs Lleyton!!

Well it would be soooooooo good to see them face off in the final against one another but that's not guaranteed so it'd be great to see them in the same group slugging it out

According to the Australian press agency AAP it has been confirmed that Kim will play the Hopman Cup again (and no surprise :Lleyton confirmed too)!

Kim, Queen of the US Open '05!

I have had a confirmation from Paul McNamee (via Tennis West news) that both Lleyton Hewitt and Kim Clijsters will play. Daniela Huntachove is also playing as well as Serena Williams. Alicia Molik will partner Hewitt.

An article from Tennis West
Hopman Cup lands two No.1's
Tuesday, 15 October, 2002

PERTH, Oct 15 AAP - The $1 million Hopman Cup tournament has landed a coup by attracting both world No.1 ranked tennis players for the first time in its history.

Men's No.1 Lleyton Hewitt will again bypass hometown Adelaide to represent Australia with Alicia Molik in the eight nation, mixed teams event from Dec 28-Jan 4.
And women's world No.1 Serena Williams will play for the United States along with James Blake.

Hewitt's decision to play the Cup for a second year means he will forego the AAPT Championships in Adelaide which is played in the same week.
The 21-year-old scored his breakthrough ATP Tour title victory at the Adelaide tournament as a 16-year-old schoolboy and continued to play it until last summer when he decided to change his schedule in a bid to be fresher going into the Australian Open.

However, his Hopman Cup debut last summer was marred by a bout of chicken pox which continued to affect him as he was beaten in the first round of the Australian Open. Other big names to sign for the Hopman Cup include Hewitt's girlfriend, world No.5 Kim Clijsters of Belgium and No.9 Daniela Hantuchova from the Slovak Republic.

Australia is seeded No.2 behind the Americans, the other countries competing are the Czech Republic, Belgium, Slovak Republic, defending champions Spain, Italy and with the last team in the tournament to be decided between the winner of Paraguay and Uzbekistan.

Tournament director Paul McNamee said: "Serena Williams is raising the bar in women's tennis and it is a real milestone that in the 15th Hopman Cup Serena becomes the 15th No.1 to play. "I've watched James Blake progress through the last two years, he has developed into a formidable player with a fantastic forehand. "Serena and James are part of the new wave of players."

According to an article on the Hopman Cup website, seeds 1 and 4 will be in group A, and seeds 2 and 3 will be in group B. Since Australia is 2 and Belgium is 4, I guess we won't be seeing that mixed doubles match. (pout.)
And, by the way, I completely resent Daja and Jiri being seeded ahead of Kim and Xavier. Does that make any sense? No. Unless they purposely did it so that Australia and Belgium wouldn't be in the same group---hmmm. (Conspiracy music.) Do you think Lleyton and Kim would only play under the condition that they (probably) wouldn't have to play each other? The seeding just doesn't seem to make a ton of sense.
