Re: Hopman Cup.
Seven of the eight countries competing Hopman Cup have been confirmed. US, Australia, Germany, Slovakia, Russia, France and Italy.
The eighth berth will be given to the winners of Asian Hopman Cup in Tashkent.
I don't know whether Kei will play Asian Hopman Cup yet, it will probably depend on how his training goes from late November. But I hope he will make it and win!
Edit: For get the above.
Japan is not playing Asian Hopman Cup because the country's national championship is taking place in the same week. Tosser!
Countries invited are Kazakhstan, China, Chinese Taipei, India, Thanland and Korea or Philippines.
It's a pity it's in mid-November so Kei won't be able to play.
O well, he can play Doha or Chennai or Brisbane in the week of Hopman Cup in January and win more points!
