Great news as Alicia Molik is representing Australia in the Hyandai Hopman Cup in Perth. Alicia will be playing with Mark Philippoussis.

The Hopman Cup runs from 30th December to 5th January. It is an Exhibition event featuring eight teams from eight countries consisting of a woman and a man. The teams are split into two groups (A and B). The two best teams qualify for the final. The matches are in a Round Robin format. In each tie, the teams play Women's Singles, Men's Singles and Mixed Doubles.

Here are the teams for the Hopman Cup (in order of seedings)

Russia - Nadia Petrova & Dmitry Tursunov
Spain - Anabel Medina Garrigues & Tommy Robredo
Czech Republic - Lucie Safarova & Tomas Berdych
USA - Ashley Harkleroad & Mardy Fish
Croatia - Sanja Ancic & Mario Ancic
Australia - Alicia Molik & Mark Philippoussis
France - Tatiana Golovin & Jerome Haehnel
India - Sania Mirza & Rohan Bopanna

Here are the two groups

A

Russia
USA
Australia
France

B

Spain
Czech Republic
Croatia
India

Good Luck to Alicia and Mark.

I live in Perth, where the Hopman Cup is held, and I am likely to buy the match between Russia and Australia. I can't wait to see Alicia and Mark play.

Go Alicia and Mark :)

Good for Alicia, no pressure for her, she can just have a go, it would be good to have some more matchplay.

Is there any way anyone could record the Australia matches on the 30th of December for me? I'm going to be away that day on holidays and the place i'm at doesn't have a tv! I almost dies when my mum told me! I don't know what to do. If anyone could do that that would be great.

I should be able to record them for you but unless you live close by you'd have to pay postage.

tough for her to play petrova first up... but she does seem confident so who knows... venus pulling out of another event weakens the american side considerably... good luck alicia!

We all know that Alicia is quite capable of beating all 3 players (Petrova, Golovin & Harkleroad). I mean Nadia will be extremely tough for Alicia but if Alicia plays at her best level & gives it her all then anything can happen.

Go Alicia! :yeah: :yeah: :yeah:

I hope Alicia, can finally win here. She has performed so well over all of her apperances. She has to be 1 of the best performing players not to win here. I think she has a fantastic chance this year to go all the way. Mark needs to perform at the HHC, for tennis australia to give him a WC, so he should take it seriously, it is a quite weak draw also. So Alicia has a chance to FINALLY win the HHC!!!! But it is all upto Mark

C'MON MARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She lost 7-5 6-2. I can't believe it! I honestly thought she would win! I didn't get to watch it, but apparently she was all over the place and couldn't find any rhythm. its all up to mark now to get them back in it!

Its all over for Australia now. Mark injured his knee and France won the tie. I don't know how serious the injury is though, maybe he can keep going on thurs? i don't know. we'll have to wait till tomorrow, cause i don't have foxtel. Its not fair:sobbing:

nathan healey has replaced mark for the last match sadly. A MRI scan will confirm what ever problem he has tomorrow.

Bad Luck on alicia's loss tonight, she made something like 34 unforced errors, so at least she wasn't blown off the court or anything, it will take time to cut those errors out.

but i must say the show alicia an her coach paul put on was awsome as she teamed up with him to play the mixed doubles for some fun an it was sooooo funny, there should be some highlights for the ppl who will be watching abc tomrw =)

miss_molik
Jan 2nd, 2007, 11:28 PM
Yeah, atleast alicia was happy playing and everything after her loss and the realisation that aus can't win the cup now. Can't wait to see highlights!

yes. for alicia to come back to her very best she needs time.

Mr.Kardashian
Jan 2nd, 2007, 11:39 PM
well we cant expect her to be too consistent at the moment...it will take time and patience for to reach her best again... from the highlights i saw on the news golovin played very well especially with her forehand so unlucky for alicia to make so many errors. the match against harkleroad should be interesting becasue she is fairly consistent and not too powerful so hopefully alicia can get another win heading into hobart

i hope alicia can get the win over harkleroad but ever since her loss to golovin it's made me realise not to expect so much of alicia's play.
