Re: Hopman Cup: Ana & Nole Cheering Thread

Here are the groups:

Group A
No. 1 Russia: Svetlana Kuznetsova, Marat Safin
No. 4 USA: Lisa Raymond, Taylor Dent
Sweden: Sofia Arvidsson, Thomas Johansson
Serbia & Montenegro: Ana Ivanovic, Novak Djokovic


Group B
No. 2 Argentina: Gisela Dulko, Gaston Gaudio
No. 3 Australia: Alicia Molik, Wayne Arthurs
Germany: Anna-Lena Groenefeld, Nicolas Kiefer
Either China: Shuai Peng, Peng Sun or Netherlands: Michaella Krajicek, Peter Wessels

And then here is the schedule:

Session 1: 30 December 10.00 am: China v Netherlands
Session 2: 31 December 10.00 am: Australia v Germany
Session 3: 1 January 10.00 am: USA v Serbia & Montenegro
Session 4: 2 January 10.00 am: Argentina v China/Netherlands
Session 5: 2 January 5.30 pm: Sweden v Serbia & Montenegro
Session 6: 3 January 10.00 am: Russia v USA
Session 7: 3 January 5.30pm: Australia v China/Netherlands
Session 8: 4 January 10.00 am: Argentina v Germany
Session 9: 4 January 5.30 pm: Russia v Sweden
Session 10: 5 January 10.00 am: Australia v Argentina and Germany v China/Netherlands
Session 11: 5 January 5.30 pm: Russia v Serbia & Montenegro and USA v Sweden
Final: 6 January 5.30 pm: Winner Group A v Winner Group B


The Tennis Channel is stupid and doesn't start televising until Jan 2. No clue why they are not showing the USA match against Nole & Ana since they're an American station. They must be afraid they'll lose.

I'm only afraid of Russia. Ana will win against Sweden and USA with no trouble I'd think. Novak should beat Taylor Dent I'd say, but possibly could lose to ToJo. Russia will be the real struggle.

Re: Hopman Cup: Ana & Nole Cheering Thread

we'll just have to see how Safin plays. And Kuznetsova, she isn't exactly rock solid lately

True.. but I see them as the only real threat, provided they both play well. In our favor is that Safin has never won a mixed doubles Hopman Cup match I believe.

Re: Hopman Cup: Ana & Nole Cheering Thread

Tough draw for Novak, 3 hard matches. Ana should win 2 or 3 of hers though. I think it'll come down to the mixed doubles in at least 2 of their matches......

Also true... but who would Russia replace him with? I don't like Novaks odds against most that I can think of.
