Hopman Cup 2012

Hopman Cup Secures Kvitova and Berdych for 2012 Event

Written by: Global Chick on 5th August 2011

Hyundai Hopman Cup in Perth Australia has secured Petra Kvitova and Tomas Berdych for the event in 2012. Kvitova and Berdych will represent the Czech Republic at the Burswood Dome.

The Hopman Cup is the official mixed teams competition of the ITF. The tournament is played at the Burswood Dome in Perth, Western Australia and will start on 31 December 2011 and run through to 7 January 2012.

Kvitova is this year’s Wimbledon Champion causing an upset when she took out Maria Sharapova in the final. Kvitova is ranked number seven on the WTA Tour singles ranking.

Tomas Berdych is currently ranked number nine on the ATP World Tour rankings. He was the runner up at Wimbledon in 2010 when he lost to Rafael Nadal. Berdych has won five ATP Tour career singles titles.

The Hyundai Hopman Cup is one tournament the players love to visit. The event is run by former tennis legend Paul McNamee and his wife Leslie. McNamee said, “We are delighted to welcome the reigning Wimbledon Champion. Kvitova has got the world at her feet, and it is a real boost for the tournament that she is tarting her 2012 campaign in Perth. With two top ten players going into the prime of their tennis careers this team will be setting the bar high for the other teams.”
nice pairing

Re: Hopman Cup 2012
I think we could see a number of bigger teams thanks to the Olympics 2012 in mixed

I think this Czech team is a clear hint at getting practice, wonder if there or at the GS beforehand they´ll get more top teams to play

Hopefully Djokovic+Jankovic/Ivanovic will return.
Serena loves playing there. There's a good chance she'll be back.

Re: Hopman Cup 2012
Bernie will probably get the call for it this year. Although Sam probably won't play. And I really rather not see Jarmila or Jelena there. Hell, I'd take Ashley Barty right now.

Shame we missed out on Serena/John this year. That pairing needs to happen.
I can see Petkovic being invited too.
Murray/Robson again?

Personal pairing - Dimitrov and Pironkova :lol:

Dulko/Del Potro would be nice to watch :hearts:

Shouldn't Andy deserve a better partner than Robson? :tape: I don't get why Baltacha, Keothavong or Watson never get to play.

Re: Hopman Cup 2012
Soderling/Larsson, Mayer/Lisicki, Youzhny/Pavlyuchenkova or Robredo/MJMS perhaps ???

Re: Hopman Cup 2012
I think they would rather Haas than Mayer :shrug:

Minella/Mueller would be :drool:

Hopfully some of the younger Aussies play this year.

Re: Hopman Cup 2012
Probably Bulgaria with Pironkova and Dimitrov because they have both stated that they would love to compete together in Hopman Cup and they applied last year but were not selected but now they have both become more well-known :p
