Asian Hopman Cup 2008

Fact sheet here: http://www.kortennis.co.kr/down/2008..._factsheet.pdf

Teams invited include:
- Kazakhstan
- China
- India
- Taiwan
- Thailand
- Korea or Philippines

Too bad Japan isn't invited. Prestigious All-Japan Championships are held that week.

Re: Asian Hopman Cup 2008

A shame Japan isn't invited

Kazakhstan could be strong with their newly recruited Russian players.

The other team is Chinese Taipei.

Good luck to Chinese Taipei (but only if Su-Wei plays, if not - GO KAZAKHSTAN)

Re: Asian Hopman Cup 2008

I wonder who will be playing for all of these countries. If Peng is playing for China, then I'd love to see China win, but otherwise, I'll be cheering Kazakhstan.

Re: Asian Hopman Cup 2008

At this time last year, we knew all of the teams and who would be playing.

So far, if what HumphreyHan says is true, the only team we know is Hsieh/Lu for Taiwan.

Re: Asian Hopman Cup 2008

Those 3 teams are actually quite strong. Any of them could take the win and the place in the maindraw Hopman Cup in Perth. Let's hope the other countries field their strongest teams as well. If India get a good combination to play, this Asian Hopman Cup could be really interesting.
