Hopman Cup Lineup Increasingly Marvy

Posted by gauloises1 on October 4, 2009

If they would just hold the damn thing in a part of the world that’s in a civilised timezone, it would be the best tournament ever. Because get this: in addition to Hewitt and Stosur for Australia and Andreev and Dementieva for Russia, Romania will be represented in the 2010 Hopman Cup by Sorana Cirstea and Victor Hanescu, while Sabine Lisicki will be returning and this time accompanied by Philipp Kohlschreiber. I also seem to have missed the news that Melanie Oudin and John Isner will be representing for the U.S.A.

I am completely stoked about this. In case you’ve missed the memo, my love for Licky is rapidly reaching Momo proportions (and when will she play Hopman Cup with Kuznetsova and win the whole damn thing for Eurasia, eh?). And I’m anything but unfond of Sorana and Melanie Oudin as well. There’s a little less wattage for me on the male side, but they’re all fun players capable of great tennis. And there are three more teams to be confirmed. Can’t wait!

    Hopman is always full of surprises. I will watch it to enjoy all the play and all the interesting mixed teams. I like to see the personalities come out of players on the court in the heat of mixed competitions. Every player is worth watching to me. I have appreciation for them all. Though I’m somewhat tired of hewitt for australia. I love the hopman cup and mixed doubles! Shame there aren’t more fun competitive event like it.
