Re: Hopman Cup 2012

Not a bad line up really.....some crowd faves in there for sure......would have been good to have a Germany or Serbia in as they always draw good crowd numbers....

How will they do seedings?
1-CZE 2-FRA 3-ESP 4-USA

Re: Hopman Cup 2012

That's an excellent WTA field, but a very mediocre ATP field.

Good for me, but I guess casual tennis fans will be a bit disappointed.

Re: Hopman Cup 2012

Yeah good for WTA fans but its good for everyone to see less well known players aswell and also to give the less well known and lower ranked players a chance to play a high level and see whats its like, lots of players end up playing really well at hopman its good for their confidence at the start of the year.

Re: Hopman Cup 2012

The matches I think I'll go to are-

Session 1 (France vs. China).
Li vs. Bartoli will be a solid match up. Also I wanna see Gasquet and how capable Wu Di is.

Session 3 (Czech Republic vs. Bulgaria)
Kvitova vs. Pironkova - Wimbledon QF match up should be a good match. Berdych vs. Dimitrov will also be very interesting.

Session 9 (Australia vs. China, France vs. Spain)
Probably out of the ones I'm interested in, the least appealing. But still worthwhile going to because it has 6 potential matches. Gajdosova and Li should be a decent enough match up, as well as Verdasco and Gasquet.

Session 10 (Czech vs. Denmark, USA vs. Bulgaria)
Kvitova vs. Wozniacki is the one I am most excited about. Hopefully it'll be good.

Depending on the final, I may go too.

Re: Hopman Cup 2012

Lleyton is such a non-factor in any tournament he plays these days. Should have replaced him with Tomic.

Lleyton is bum chums with the organiser McNamee. It wouldn't matter where Tomic was ranked he'll select Lleyton.

WTF is with the Wozniacki/Nielsen selection. I could understand it if she was some sort of drawcard.

Re: Hopman Cup 2012

This year, Hewitt has the distinction of being the highest-ranked Australian male player ever to accept an invitation to contest the Hopman Cup (No. 1 in 2002 and 2003) and also the lowest-ranked Australian male player ever to be accept an invitation (No. 198 at the time of commitment).

The lowest-ranked player ever to accept an invitation was Jelena Dokic in the 1999 event. She was ranked 638 on the WTA but was the ITF World No. 1 junior. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The lowest-ranked male player ever to accept an invitation was Yasufumi Yamamoto in the 1991 event. He was ranked 471. Correct me if I'm wrong.

With the signing of Caroline Wozniacki, the Hopman Cup has now had 24 World No. 1's compete in the tournament, though not all necessarily ranked No. 1 at the time of contesting the event.

The Women:

1. Steffi Graf (No. 1 in 1989)
2. Monica Seles
3. Arantxa Sanchez Vicario
4. Martina Hingis
5. Lindsay Davenport (No. 1 in 1999)
6. Serena Williams (No. 1 in 2003)
7. Ana Ivanovic
8. Jelena Jankovic
9. Dinara Safina
10. Caroline Wozniacki (No. 1 in 2012)
11. Amelie Mauresmo
12. Kim Clijsters
13. Justine Henin

The Men:

1. Mats Wilander
2. Thomas Muster
3. Boris Becker
4. Ivan Lendl
5. Roger Federer
6. Novak Djokovic
7. Lleyton Hewitt (No. 1 in 2002, 2003)
8. Marat Safin
9. Patrick Rafter
10. Carlos Moya
11. John McEnroe

Players that either wanted to play or accepted an invitation, only to withdraw due to injury or lack of a partner include:

Pete Sampras (invited to play in 1991 with Zina Garrison, but withdrew due to shin splints)
Jennifer Capriati (invited to play in 1994 with Richey Reneberg, but withdrew due to personal problems)
Anna Kournikova (wanted to play in 2000 but both Kafelnikov and Safin committed to Doha)
Venus Williams (invited to play in 2007 with Mardy Fish, but withdrew due to injury)
Andy Roddick (invited but never accepted, demanded appearance fee of 12 million)
Victoria Azarenka (invited to play in 2006 with Max Mirnyi, but she withdrew due to mix-up with scheduling)
Patty Schnyder (invited to play numerous times with Roger Federer, but declined to play tournaments in QLD)
Maria Sharapova (invited in 2008, but didn't want to play indoors and had committed to Hong Kong exhibition)
Gabriela Sabatini (invited to play in 1993/4 when Pepsi was main sponsor (Gaby was endorsed by Pepsi), declined)

When Hyundai took over as the main sponsor, they requested a Korean team. Hyung-Taik Lee and Yoon Jeong Cho both accepted an invitation but both withdrew due to injuries. LOL
