Federer most probably and Casanova,

Myriam seems to love playing Events such as these, and if Patty is going to be commited to the Goldcoast it is a Roger And Myriam pairing, thats if they want to play, because only one Swiss Team member was interested last year. and that was Roger.

A new Dutch team can't be far off. Netherlands hasn't played since 1997. Out of the men, they could choose from Sjeng Schalken, Martin Verkerk and Raemon Sluiter. Out of the women, they'd have to look all the way down the list to Elise Tamaela and perhaps even Michaella Krajicek. The Hopman Cup has been known to uncover new talent, so perhaps Tamaela and Krajicek aren't such long shots.

I'd also like to see Israel - Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi and perhaps Harel Levy. There is a big Jewish community with Israeli roots in Perth.

NO Thailand please! I want Tammy to play in Goldcoast. BTW, Thailand was the runner up in 2000 right? They lost to South Africa 3-0 or something like that ... ummm not sure

Israel or Holland, that would be good! but havent been mentioned last i heard a Schalken/Krajicek pairing i reckon would do alright!

Don't like the chances of a swiss team as Patty has already said she plans to play GoldCoast in 2005 so they will be speaking to Myriam at Us Open

Clijsters apparently said she will play, but nothing in writing as yet!

Poor Roger, he wants to come back but can't find a woman to play with. Maybe he's a jinx and the Swiss girls know it. Every woman he's ever played with in the event is now too severely injured to play ever again. If they want new talent, they could try Timea Bacsinszky. But then, he wouldn't want to jinx such a young girl.

If Lleyton doesnt play i reckon they would ask todd and chris before Mark and Wayne

Not sure about Molik though . . . . if sure Pratty would play if they asked but they might be more inclined to ask Sam but she should defend in Gold Coast . . .

An Italian team and Argintine Team would be cool !!!

Tough one for RUSSIA - The French Open champion (Myskina) or the Wimbledon champion (Sharapova)? In marketing terms, Sharapova will probably be the bigger drawcard, but in fairness, Myskina is Russia's best, potentially the next World No. 1 player and holds a good H2H record against Sharapova. Undeniably, both deserve to play here, but only one of them can be invited.
Pick Maria!! Pick Maria!! :bounce:
Im already organising tickets, so it would be a massive bonus if Maria plays!!!
Tough choice on form though having both won a GS this year.
