"McNamee admitted trying to get Serena Williams back to the Perth event, but wasn't able to pull it off. He also said Lindsay Davenport and Venus Williams had commitments elsewhere."

NOVAK and ANA are the hottest team there and probably the most talented, I dont think the Russians will win, Kuzzi is crap atm.

SCG - all the way (if injuries go away)

I agree Ivanovic, where the heck is Slovakia:eek: I thought they were supposed to ahve been official, and I remember Hrbaty saying at the US Open he was going to wear his wierd shirt with holes in the back:confused:

If Marat & Kuz play to their potential they should stomp this field. But you never know with them. But Kuz is very good in doubles, and that was their weakness in previous years.

yeah, but I new my wish came true age ago when Ana said it on Serbian TV - but its still nice to see it officially :lol: :p

It should be a great and exciting hopman cup, I cant wait. :D

btw, why is Netherelands playing qualifying when they are ranked higher then Belarus :confused: , and who is the male chinese player, I have acctually never heard of a male chinese ATP player, they'll have to go to some club and pick a guy at random :lol:

If that is the case, yes.... perhaps :)

But I really hope Germany plays Australia in Sessions 1-4, or 10-11.... as I am an Australian, but I want to support Anna-Lena, and I am going to two sessions in the 5-8 block... don't want Aust vs Ger...

I want Germany vs Argentina and Russia vs USA or Serbia.

I finally found a photo of Victoria Azarenka - um she looks tiny is she like 14 or 15. It will be so cute her and Max in the mixed :hug: :haha: :haha: he's twice her size :lol: . They are my favourite team after Serbia :cool: :D - but they will have to face SCG :sad: :D .

Last year my favourite team was Misa and Peter ;) - I like to see two totally opposites play :lol: - the year before that it was Barbora and Jiri - OMG they had the funniest ' give me five' ever :haha: , insted of using their hands - they would use their fists while doing some sort of a dance :haha: :silly: .

I think she's 16 - she's still playing juniors a bit. She is playing a juniors tourney in Asia this week. She's the #1 seed, and she beat her first r opponent with a double bagel! :lol:
