Murray, Robson Confirmed for Hopman Cup

Posted by gauloises1 on October 28, 2009

It’s been confirmed that Andy Murray and Laura Robson will be representing Great Britain at the Hopman Cup in January.

I’m not keen on this idea particularly from the Robson POV – let’s hype her massively and push her hard, because god knows that’s never gone wrong for us before – but I must admit, it’ll be fun to see Great Britain representing at the Hopman Cup. C’mon Tim!

    Know what you mean about the hype – but Hopman Cup is the perfect place to experience that spotlight and pressure without the results making any difference to your tour standing. In a way, it’s the perfect opportunity to see first hand how Andy deals with the constant public demands – press, interviews etc. If it saves the rather outspoken Robbo from being burned the way Andy has in the past for jokey remarks, then that’s a good thing.

    What was awesome, was on the radio this morning the announcer reported it as “British tennis star Andy Murray has confirmed that he will be playing in the Hopman Cup. He will be partnered by a 15 year old school girl.”

    Hehehe, aw Aussies. No clue that this 15 yo has had the Brits stalking her since junior Wimbles and has the future of the Brit game resting on her shoulders. That’s the advantage of L-Rob playing in our little corner of the world.

    Plus, I’m looking forward to the cheesy lo-fi ABC interviews they do with Hopman players – like Novak making sausages… or was it eating sausages… it was something about Serbian food. Or Keifer cooking prawns on the barbie, and I think there was a combined Lucie/Big Berd one at one point.

    Oh, also thought I should mention, that after the radio announcement I literally squealed “Andy!” to myself in the car. It was a disturbing realisation of my MAndy love.
