Hopman Cup 2011 - Serbia #1 seeds.

http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/spo...opman-mission/

Australia: Molik/Hewitt
USA: S.Williams/Isner
Serbia: Ivanovic/Djokovic
Belgium: Henin/Darcis
France: Mladenovic/Monfils
Italy: Schiavone/Starace
Kazakhstan: Shvedova/Golubev

The field is pretty decent, only one more team is left. Who do you think will be the 8th team?

Re: Molik, Schiavone Confirmed for Hopman Cup 2011

Do they still do the Asian Hopman Cup play off or did they just stick Kazahkstan in?

Atleast we know Alicia is sticking around for another year...

Ivanovic, Fran, Serena and Henin Thats pretty decent.

Molik for Australia? we're in for another defeat

i hope Murray/Robson comes back. They were very enjoyable to watch and they drew in big crowds.

Meanwhile, McNamee flagged the collapse of the Asian Hopman Cup qualifying event as a blessing in disguise, with tournament organisers no longer restricted to selecting the qualifying nation, allowing them to lure the strongest possible field to Perth.

A lack of fan interest forced organisers to abandon the event after only four years.

"There won't be an Asian Hopman Cup in the foreseeable future and we'll be free to pick whatever team we want," McNamee said.

"Preferably we'd like to have an Asian nation because of Western Australia's proximity and alliance with the region, but ultimately it's up to the quality of the European teams.

"We want to strengthen the field and not have an obligation to this, or an obligation to that."

Thanks Well thats good, but still don't like the choice of Kazahkstan if they're not required to choose a team from that region. If they were going for an Asian nation Japan, China, Taiwan or India would have been better IMO.

Kazakhstan nearly made the final this year... but true, I'd prefer Spain or Russia over them.

Pretty good field considering the past few years. Too bad France isn't represented by a better female player.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

too bad Nadal or Fed won't play. Djoko's the only top 10 guy in the draw.

Russia?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

UK have no options, France have Rezai, Bartoli, Razzano and others more established than Mlandenovic.

I can't wait to go to the HC, I won't hold my breath for serena though. I hope Justine shows up, she is one of the few top ones I haven't seen in person.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
