Russia only needed one set in the mixed to make it through :cool:

Those are strange rules. Safina seems to be rounding into form as the week went on

As it stands Italy have won two ties and six matches, if russia loses in the mixed thay have won two ties and five matches so therefore russia need to win (either in two or three sets) the mixed to make the final

So Russia is not in the final? These rules are incomprehensible.
The people who run Hopman Cup must be taking stupid pills.

ok well.. if Russia win the mixed they would have a 2-1 win/loss in ties, 6-3 win/loss in matches and either 14-7 or 8 in sets...

Italy have a a 2-1 win/loss in ties, 6-3 win/loss in matches and a 12-7 and therefore Russia would be in the final bases on ratio of sets

however if russia loses they then go to haveing 5 wins, 4 loses and therefore itial will be in the final bases on raito of matches

in other words russia must win the mixed to get to the final if not italy will be in the final

Wedgies is right. France need to beat Russia in the mixed so Italia would have been in the final :(

Grr @ Cornet/Simon! :mad: :lol:

The Safin vs Hrbaty match will be key

Marat never won this with Anastasia. Nadia won it. Now Dinara's winning it

I think Slovak Republic will take it 2-1. Safina and Hrbaty will take the singles rubbers, and Slovak Republic have shown much better mixed doubles form than the Russian siblings. I'd be fairly happy with either result though, as long as it isn't a 3-0 whitewash. :)

Does anyone know what happened to Nicolas Kiefer? The last I saw was him being stretchered off the court...

Russia will probably lose doubles.. Hrbaty vs Safin should be a close match as well.. It's 2-1 to Russia anyway :)

I think Dominika can beat Safina this time... I guess the score will be 2-1 for Slovakia!!

Why is everyone forgetting about Elena Likhovtseva who was the first Russian to complete the Hopman Cup? :(

Likhovtseva/Safin played Hopman Cup in 2001.
