Do they still do the Asian Hopman Cup play off or did they just stick Kazahkstan in?
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."
Re: Molik, Schiavone Confirmed for Hopman Cup 2011
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.
