Only 2 more years until the new tennis arena in Perth will be open to host the Hopman Cup :drool:

When I saw this thread, I thought someone's a bit late for this year's tournament and didn't realise the date.

I think Casey would need the match practice before she defends her 4th Round at AO. Good choice for Lleyton aswell.

It is nice that little Leighton seems to have put his hatred of Paul McNamee to one side. I agree with all the other posters though. Why is this so early!

You can see the new stadium here:

I presume thats the place it will be held at. Quite hideous, almost as bad as federation square in Melbourne!

Yeah? I didn't know you will be getting a new arena. A tennis complex?Yep as well as the new stadium for AFL ;) This indoor arena will also be used for large concerts etc and has a retractable roof to make playing the Hopman Cup as close to playing on RLA as you can get.

I never said that the idea of Fed Square wasn't a good one. :p I was commenting purely on the look of the place. :p
