Belgium's 2004 Hopman Cup Team

It is Kim and Xavier and they are seeded 3 behind USA and Australia, personally I think they should be ahead of Aus but anyway. Russia are seeded 4.
Other teams are Slovaks, Czechs, France and playoff between Hungary and Canada

Good Luck to KIm and Xavier

I hope they are in the same group as Australia, and then a final USA vs. Belgium

I'm with you on that to.

Kim vs Lleyton = hilarious
I just have this vision of Kim trying to hit lleyton with the ball and really aiming all her shots at him. I think Kim would enjoy playing him, she has said before she wants to. I don't think lleyton would like playing kim he was asked about it last year and said it'd be very difficult.

Belgium are in Group B with Australia, SLovak Republic and the qualifying team. Group A is USA, Russia, France and Czech Republic, group A looks very tough on the women's side with 3 top tenners, whereas Kim is the only top tenner in her group.

Just an interesting fact is that if you count up the games Kim has lost in her last match with Hantuchova, molik and Mandula (she is higher ranked than drake and I think Hungary wil beat Canada in quallies) Kim has only lost 5 games
Last match with Molik
Kim won 6-26-0 Fed Cup 2002
Last match with Daniela
Kim won 6-0 6-3 Berlin QF 2003
Last Match with Mandula
Kim won 6-0 6-0 AO 2003

Quite a nice draw for Kim I'd say given she could have been in Serena's group and had Mauresmo drawn in her group as well.

Great On the other hand she's there to get some matchrythm, I think Kim would have prefered tougher matches. But I'm fine with this one
