Who can forget the post match interviews from the 2010 Hopman Cup and all the giggling and banter, I don't think I've ever seen Andy smile so much! Also it really is remarkable how patient he is with Laura and doesn't just smash his racket every time she double faults on break point.

They won't be playing at the Hopman Cup 2014 and its unlikely Andy will play mixed at a slam so I guess it was fun while it lasted
I think they will definitely partner again in Rio 2016. I'm sure they will partner for a slam at one point too, hopefully Wimbledon. Although it might not be next year considering Andy needs to come back from back surgery and try and defend his Wimbledon title etc.
