Serena headlines Hopman Cup field


PERTH, Australia -- Top-ranked Serena Williams will combine with Wimbledon doubles champion Jack Sock in the United States team which will compete in a star-studded Hopman Cup tournament in January.
Williams won the Cup with James Blake in 2003 and Mardy Fish in 2008 and will again use the tournament as preparation for the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, the Australian Open.
Defending champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will combine with Alize Cornet in a French team playing in Group B with Australia, Great Britain and Poland. Two-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray will play for Britain alongside Heather Watson.
Canada's Eugenie Bouchard, rising Australian star Nick Kyrgios and world No.6 Agnieszka Radwanska are among other big names confirmed for the Jan. 4-10 event.

Re: Serena headlines Hopman Cup field

I like this idea. I think it will help her to be better prepared for AO than Brisbane. More footwork involved in these matches, plus she will face the guys who serve better with more pace, and it will sharpen her net play.

Exactly why I'm excited.
Plus, when was the last time she was healthy enough to play the Hopman Cup? And Sock is a decent partner and trustworthy individual.
She'll have fun while representing/competing for her country.


Additionally...

The defending champions are Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Alize Cornet.
