Germany will replace SouthKorea

Nicoals Kiefer posted today on his website

Quote:
22.11.2006 : Kiwi-Comeback beim Hopman Cup Die lange Pause neigt sich endlich dem Ende entgegen. Nicolas Kiefer wird zum Jahreswechsel auf die Turnierszene zurückkehren. Die Einladung zur Teilnahme am Hopman Cup, die ihn erreichte, sagte er umgehend zu: „Das war beim letzten Mal ein gutes Omen und wird es hoffentlich auch dieses Mal. Ich freue mich, dass die Veranstalter mich nicht vergessen haben. Der Hopman Cup ist als Einstandsturnier optimal für mich, da ich sichere Spielpraxis haben werde.“ Wer an der Seite von Kiwi für Deutschland, das anstelle von Südkorea teilnehmen wird, antritt, steht offenbar noch nicht fest. Bei der letzten Auflage war es Anna-Lena Grönefeld.
it´s written Germany will replace SouthKorea
it´s not out yet who is partner will be
it will be his first torunament after his injury

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Germany will replace SouthKorea

I had a feeling that Korea would not be able to partake, but is there anything other than on his website that makes it official? If this is for real, than Anna-Lena better be his partner.

Re: Germany will replace SouthKorea

Um yeah... I know I was one of the ones saying about how Korea didn't deserve a main draw spot when they were given one, but I would have much preferred Korea over this German team. I can't stand Kiefer And Martina is not the type of player I enjoy watching, I wouldn't have minded watching Anna-Lena play again, but Martina Hopman Cup 2007 is unfortunately getting worse as it gets closer.

Re: Germany will replace SouthKorea

this is the media release i was sent by email

Germany Into Hopman

2006 Australian Open semi-finalist Nicolas Kiefer and team mate Martina Muller, ranked 34, have answered the call up to replace Korea at this year’s Hyundai Hopman Cup. Korea were forced out of the tournament yesterday after Yoon Jeong Cho injured herself in a practice match. Germany will join USA, Australia and Russia in Group A giving the Aussie combination of Alicia Molik and Mark Philippoussis a tricky second match.

In further news, Kiefer is not the only late starter in Perth, due to the introduction of Daylight Saving in Western Australia, all sessions at Hyundai Hopman Cup will commence one hour later. Day Sessions will start at 11.00am and Night Sessions 6.30pm with the Friday night Final commencing at 6.00pm.

Germany will seamlessly replace Korea in the schedule so will face the defending Champions USA in their first match on Saturday evening 30 December. Muller will play 5 time Grand Slam Champion Venus Williams and Nicolas Kiefer will face Taylor Dent. Their third match is against number one seeds Russia. There are no other changes to the schedule.

Kiefer played Hopman Cup for the first time last year, winning matches against Gaston Gaudio and Wayne Arthurs before taking his good form to Melbourne for a career best Grand Slam semi-final appearance where he gallantly lost to eventual champion Roger Federer in a four set match. Later in the year he was a member of Germany’s team that made it to the final of the World Team Cup.

24 year old Martina is the second ranked German player and is in career best form, reaching the semi-finals in Budapest, finishing the year with a WTA ranking of 34. She won 4 tournaments on the ITF circuit in 2006: Civitavechia (Italy), Cagnes Sur Mer (France), Baden Baden (Germany) and Bordeaux (France).

Tickets for Hyundai Hopman Cup are now on sale at all Ticketek outlets.

Hyundai Hopman Cup XIX, to be held from 30 December 2006 to 5 January 2007, is the Official Mixed Teams Competition of the ITF.

I am thrilled!!!! Anythin was better than South Korea. Makes Australias draw much harder. Instead of Winning onli 1 tie against Korea, it will be 0.

Re: Germany will replace SouthKorea

Actually, I quite enjoyed the South Korean team.

NOT!

Anyway I hate Martina M's grunt it sounds so retarded. I've only seen her play once before when she lost 6-1 6-2 to Kim at US Open 2005 first round.

This is a vast improvement on Korea. The team is ranked higher too.

Re: Germany will replace SouthKorea

It is an improvement on Korea ranking wise, but for me I'd rather watch Korea just because I really dislike both these German players Give me Tommy and Anna-Lena any day.

Point taken, although I don't really enjoy cheering against people all that often, what are you going to do, watch them lose and then say "HA! Take that, you lost!" and then sit there feeling some sort of achievement that the person you wanted to lose lost.
