Yeah, cant wait till we c the pics - I'm sure Ana will steal the show.
If she turns up.
One of the commentators was like "I feel sorry 4 d 2 nations playing tomorrow - they will miss the NYE ball - especially for SCG as they are both 18" LOL
its tough to miss such a great event 4 Ana and Nole - but I'd rather see them beat the USA tomorrow - then party their butts of tonight.

the commentators also said Lisa Raymond was taking it easy and is planning to go to sleep early - not wait till midnight.

But I dont thnik Ana will do this - I think she will definetly turn up - Serbs are suckers for a party - i dont think they'll miss it - but I wish they better play it safe and just go to sleep at 8pm. :)

Apparently, my uncle was invited to the Hopman Cup NYE Ball by some chick he met at the casino. I was shocked to learn of this invitation. It just goes to show that if you hang around the casino long enough, sooner or later you'll meet someone with connections and suddenly, your whole world opens up. More power to the art of schmoozing!! Respeck, aiight!! LOL.

I think Ana and Novak will attend the ball but won't stay until the end. It's not much of a strain to put on a nice dress or a tuxedo and make an appearance at a NYE Ball. It starts at something like 8pm, so a little trip down the red carpet and then two hours with your peers isn't going to tire you out for the next day. This year, all the players (except Yuri Schukin) are in Perth early so everyone will probably go. It would be a shame for them not to go. I doubt Lisa Raymond would turn in early when everyone else is showing their faces. She's not that much of a freak. Besides, Gigi Fernandez is in Perth and will probably drag Lisa kicking and screaming from her bed if she didn't attend at least for a couple of hours. Btw, Gigi still looks HOT!!!

Barbara Schett is in Perth too!!

Are Gigi & Lisa good friends, Fantastic? And does your uncle have any gossip? ;)

Is Babs in Perth because shes dating Josh Eagle? Or is she commentating?

And finally-any links to some pics from the ball? :)

Did anyone see the party - it was great they were all there except raymond.

Ana definetly stole the show - she looked absolutely stunning - ALL the commentators said so. :)
During the party Novak sang on stage - apparently it was so funny - coz he was really bad LOL- what a retard - it also looked as if he was stripping.

Samantha Stosur looked great - so did Sofia Arvidsson.
Ahh poor Misa - she um - well lets just say she tried. The green eye make up and frizzy hair were so bad - and whats with the big orange flower stuck on her forhead.
ALG - could have tried to dress up a bit better.
Dulko - looked OK - but she wore Jeans and a plain white top - not very vibrant for a NYE ball.
But yeah Ana wore this incredibly tight hot redish dress - with her hair up - ahh so stunning - too bad they lost today.


OMG - did anyone see the "Novak's Meat Maddness" clip.
he took this reporter to the Serbian community center and made him eat all this meat - and he's like a vegetarian. Then he made the guy try Serbian brandy - lmao.
That was just so funny - I think the thing with Novak is that he is not taking things very seriously - he's having to much fun with everything including tennis - and thats why he wasnt so focused today in the mixed.
But he is such a great guy - so damn funny - I still cant believe he stole the mike from the lead singer and sand some "Mary" song or something - then it looked like he was stripping or something - I hope he wasnt drunk - LOL - poor Ana she was next to him the whole time.

But yeah it lookes as if they all had a great time.

Of course Ana looked unbelievable; she really knows how to make an impression. She is one gorgeous girl :)

And it looked at though she and Nole were having a great time at the Ball, especially because he was making an idiot of himself lol. Stealing the microphone and dancing outrageously! Ah good times!

I have no idea why Babara Schett is in Perth. I assumed she was commentating for a European network. When I saw her she was holding hands with a built guy that was clearly not Josh Eagle. He had salt-and-pepper-coloured hair, for starters, and was a bit shorter than her. She looked rather HOT though!!

The Serbian kids were definitely the big hit of the Ball, but both for very contrasting reasons. Novak made a lot of noise, while Ana caused a lot of noise to be made. The last time the media made a fuss over a hot, young girl in a hot dress was when Martina Hingis played as a 15-year-old in 1995/96 and wowed the Ball.

The highlight reel on the TV didn't show Gaston Gaudio or Sveta Kuznetsova, but both were in town. I saw both of them there that day. Gaston was on his way out to practice at about 4.00pm while Sveta was already in the Dome practicing at about 2.00pm. I'm sure both of them made it.

Purple_Llama, I don't know if Lisa and Gigi are friends but they've played Fed Cup together at least once, I'm sure. Perhaps back in 1995 or 1996. Or at least they have mutual acquaintances - Sam Stosur being one of them. In fact, in one of jirobkk's pics, it showed Gigi and Lisa out on the court and Gigi helping out Lisa with some tennis balls. Sam was playing at the time so it was awfully nice of Gigi to give up some of her free time to help Lisa out.

And Gigi being a bit of a good-time girl herself, well... I just assumed she'd never allow Lisa to hole up in a hotel room while everyone else is having fun. ;)

So did anyone else catch the feature ABC just had on Ana?

Well this reporter has to be the luckiest guy in the world. He went around with Ana on New Year's and helped her pick out a dress to wear to the Ball. She tried out several dresses until the reporter found the one that he thought looked the best on her. What a lucky man, you should have seen some of the dresses she tried on :lick: . And then he asked her a few questions about some of the troubles her home country have gone through and how she dealt with them.

Yeh she is stunning, there's no doubt about it. I was just so envious of the reporter, what a lucky man getting to follow Ana around for a day ;)

Hm really? I see Josh is commentating there though-it must've been a short romance ;) On Foxtel this year they did some commentating together at the French Open & Wimbldeon-so it should be interesting if she rejoins Foxtel at the Oz Open & they have to do it together again :lol:

As for Gigi & Lisa-I guess Lisa is considered a veteran now & also a doubles expert-so I guess it wouldn't be a huge suprise if they were friendly. Is Lisa gay too? And agreed-Gigi is still very hot-lucky Sam lol

I just read on the WTA Tour website that Lisa is also working with Gigi part-time, which probably explains their association. Lisa probably works with Gigi, alongside Sam, for their doubles. But they make a very "sapphic" trio, don't they? ;)
