I've come to like the idea of her playing Hopman Cup. At least she'll get a few matches under her belt and with the team aspect, win or lose, it won't be totally on her. Relatively low pressure by her standards, maybe a good way to get this going.

This is a very good scoreline! Did anyone watch? How was she playing?

I didnt watch.I'd like to believe this is a sign of good things to come but Kiki is perhaps Petko's only pigeon on tour so who knows..

A shame Zverev lost,now reaching the final almost impossible.

A win on Australian soil is always a pleasant surprise. Too bad she doesn't have a decent partner.

Watched her single play, Kiki not in form and Petko played not bad, improved movement and consistency. But who knows how long her form can last Sorry I cannot be more optimistic. Anyway it's good to see her start the season with a win

Stats according to their website: Petko 10/15, Kiki 15/34. So it seems that Kiki was indeed quite horrible but from that very short highlight video she looked good. But I think that match against Belinda will be more telling.

Nice easy win over Mladenovic !

But still Germany lost

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
Serena Williams Maria Sharapova Jelena Jankovic
A. Radwanska V. Zvonareva C. Wozniacki N. Petrova M. Hingis
T. Paszek A. Chakvetadze K. Sprem J. Dokic I. Tulyaganova A. Myskina

Now we know she's still the same as most of the time in the last year.
