Robson Joins Murray for British Team At Hopman Cup!

Murray confirmed for Hopman Cup XXII

October 27, 2009 - 3:03PM

The Hopman Cup's worst kept secret was confirmed today when Great Britain's Andy Murray was confirmed as a player in the 22nd edition of the mixed doubles tournament Cup in 2010.

Despite Murray's world number four ranking, the Australian combination of Lleyton Hewitt and Sam Stosur will be the number one seed for the tournament.

Australia has been drawn in group A with Spain, Romania and the US.

Russia, comprising Igor Andreev, ranked world number 38, and world number five Elena Dementieva, will be the second favourites heading into the competition.

A predicted by WAtoday last month, Murray will team with 15-year-old Laura Robson, who has strong ties to Perth, and will be the number three seeds.

"I look forward to playing at the Hopman Cup with Laura,'' Murray said.


"I'm hoping it will be good preparation for the Australian Open.


"Laura is a great talent and it will be good to link up together playing for our country.''


Spain will be the fourth ranked duo in the eight team competition, and will feature former winner Tommy Robredo and prominent doubles player Maria Jose Martinez-Sanchez

Other teams competing are the US, Romania and Germany while the winner of the Asian Hopman Cup, known on November 14, will complete the field.

Re: Robson Joins Murray for British Team At Hopman Cup!

Dementieva, Stosur, Lisicki, Cirstea, Robson, Oudin, Martinez Sanchez and maybe a golden flower?

What a field!



Spain will once again bring some bore to the tournament.

Great to see!

Those groups suck though. I wanted to see UK vs Australia in the groups stage.

Re: Robson Joins Murray for British Team At Hopman Cup!

And Australia as top seeds? As if it wasn't already obvious that this year's lineup was a little weaker than usual...

Re: Robson Joins Murray for British Team At Hopman Cup!

Soarana is injured - she broke a knee ligament and she needs at least 2 months to recover so it's posible she won't play at the Hopman Cup

Re: Robson Joins Murray for British Team At Hopman Cup!

If Sorana withdraws, then it'll be a HUGE cakewalk to the final for Australia. Group A is already much weaker than Group B.

Re: Robson Joins Murray for British Team At Hopman Cup!

I hope Sorana will play, it would be hard to find a decent replacement for her. Can't say i'd like Olaru, Dulgheru or Gallovits over Cirstea.
