Any early whisperings on who the teams might be?

I know we want find out till post US Open but the teams are usually confirmed by the US Open and it is about now and during the US Open lead ins that the players deide and commit to it. So has anyone heard anything? I haven't

Let's predict who we think will be the field

Australia (obviously) probably lleyton and Alicia again, but I think for Lleyton a lot depends on whether Kim plays. If Kim doesn't play then I think Lleyton might play his hometown event. If not lleyton then mark, but Alicia will play it I think
US-Blake and Lindsay; I know Serena is in with a shot but as defending champs I think the same team should get asked first.
Russia - Myskina and Safin, didn't play their best last time but Nastya is a GS champ now and Safin isn't coming off 12 months ruined by a wrist injury
Belgium- Malisse and either JHH or Kim; as JHH is now the top Belgian she will get first offer but will the organisers want to lose Kim , last year Aus-Bel was the biggest crowd ever and Kim has been a long time supporter of the event and Kim will probably want to play here to be ensured of 6 matches which she will need coming ack from surgery, so who knows but Belgium will be here regardless of which woman they select.

Slovak Republic - Daniela and Hrbaty; even though they only made the final this year cause of Kim and MOlik's innjuries I think they weill be asked back, they are popular and have won before (albeit with different players)
Croatia - Sprem and Ancic; I'd love to see this team
Switzerland - Federer and Casanova

Qualifying: Hungary: Mandula and Savolt; I'd like to see them invited back
and hmm does China have a male player? If so I'd say China with Zheng and a guy otherwise Korea with Cho and Lee.

Hope Barbora comes back too, she was very popular

Justine? No way

If Belgium plays, then it'll be Kim & Xavier I think!

Well Alicia Molik has already said that she will be coming back as yet Lleyton has not confirmed and i presume that is because Kim hasn't either

Tanasugarn has said yes but will only play if Srichaphan also agrees to enter

Myskina has also confirmed and just waiting on Marat or Youzhny

Daniella and Dominik have been asked just waiting to hear back from them

Serbia i dont think so sorry mate

Do you know if they asked Kim or Justine? And which Guy? Or will there be a Belgian team.

i want patty and roger - i suspect it will never happen though because i doubt roger will change his winning formula from this year and patty seems to love the gold coast.

Paradorn might play if he is invited because he is no need to defend Chennai title. (he was runner up). For Tammy !!! I'm pretty sure she will play.

I also would love to see China team. But what's ranked of men's ranking.

I'd love to see SVK again. I thought they'd ask Kucera before Hrbaty as he was in the final last year and did well, and also won before, but i guess Hrbaty's ranking and results are better.
Hrbaty's got a tough decision to make, last year at Adelaide he said he would be back to defend his title, but he also loves to play for his country. I dont know what i'd like him to do, Hopman Cup is great, but he'll lose points for not defending Adelaide.

I'd also like to see more Asian teams, there werent enough this year. Thailand are always fun, if not then I'd like to see China. They dont have any good male players, but Hungary and Uzbekistan dont either and that didnt stop them.

Luczak is very Unlikely Azza

Still waiting on Hrbaty to commit the reason he was chosen over Karol is because of his results and rankings this year so far where as Karol has been pretty quiet.

China maybe ill have to find out about that, but i dont think they have a male player of this level dunno i'll check that one!

Sorry before i said Myskina had confirmed however my mistake Myskina has asked to play but undecided between her and Sharapova

They have asked Kim first, trying to get Kim so that lleyton will play here again is the reason and have asked Xavier havent heard back from either of them yet

Tough one for RUSSIA - The French Open champion (Myskina) or the Wimbledon champion (Sharapova)? In marketing terms, Sharapova will probably be the bigger drawcard, but in fairness, Myskina is Russia's best, potentially the next World No. 1 player and holds a good H2H record against Sharapova. Undeniably, both deserve to play here, but only one of them can be invited.
