Re: Who will win Hopman Cup 2010?
I'm feeling really good about Germany's chances this year. Sabine is full of confidence right now (or should be at least), and Kolhschriber is never someone to just overlook. They could be a very strong threat to the obvious front runners.
Russia is to dog in my mind. Dementieva is the stongest female contender this year and will most likely win all of her singels matches. Andreev on the other hand needs to get back some of that stellar form we all know he has. Together I think they just might take it all.
But don't overlook top seeds Australia. They have home court advantage and are both playing some great tennis as of late. I would look to Stosur to be the more unreliable of the two, as she still hasn't shown great consistensy with her newly inproved game. Hewitt will need to add his experience to this team and really take control.
I'm also interested to see how Kazakhastan will play. Both players are fairly young and just breaking into the spotight on their respected tours, and if they can come together and play good tennis they might be able to impress everyone. Very long shot to win though.
