Who will win the Hopman Cup?

I've posted the same thread on wtaworld and Serbia is leading. Let's do it on a men's point of view
What do u guys on MTF think?

Group A
Russia (Kuznetsova and Teimuraz Gabashvili who replaces Safin, the musketeer having withdrew)
USA (Lisa Raymond and Dent)
Sweden (Arvidsson and T.Johansson)
Serbia (Ana Ivanovic and Novak - very glamour team )

Group B
Argentina (Gisela Dulko and Gaston)
Australia (Stosur and old Wayne Arthurs)
Germany (Groenefeld and Kiefer)
China (Shuai Peng and Peng Sun-who is he?) or Netherlands (Misa Krajicek -go lil'sister - and Wessels)

So which country will win???
The competition will be interesting...
With Safin withdrawing, chances of Russia are diminished as Gabashvili never really played well outside of Russia. My pick is USA vs Germany in the final with Germany winning.

I think the same final, but I don't think Novak will beat Kiwi. Well wait, it's a final.. so maybe Novak would. Anyway, SCG v. Germany in the final with SCG winning 2-1.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Who will win the Hopman Cup?

Serbia - Ana can beat anyone there and Novak isn't too bad himself and yes, they also win the cuteness contest

Re: Who will win the Hopman Cup?

I hope Argentina does, Gisela needs a bit more confidence about her game...and it wouls not hurt Gaston gaining some confidence too

Re: Who will win the Hopman Cup?

Serbia is again leading as on wtaworld...
Seems like Serbia is the favorite thus!
But I truly think Germany will beat them :
>i'd say Kiefer would beat Djokovic
>the match between Ana Ivanovic and ALena Groenefeld would be tight
>but Kiefer/Groenefeld is a much stronger team in doubles than Ana/Novak

Don't you agree?

Re: Who will win the Hopman Cup?

Germany would have some chances, but Grönefeld injured her ankle at the end of last season and I'm not so optimistic about her play and if she immediately connect on her great form she had before the injury.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Who will win the Hopman Cup?

Being purely partisan, I'd like Dent and Raymond to win.
