I think it will come down to doubles, since Stosur might easily take out Bouchard.

That's how it works, right? I haven't watched Hopman Cup before but I will this year.

The way stosur plays in australia it may be the opposite. Tomic was lights out early in australia last year, should be 1 of the more interesting groups. A lot of people are predicting bouchard for top 10 in womens this upcoming season. Stosur did beat bouchard in a final late in 2013, but I believe it will be close.
Mixed doubles is pretty unpredictable, so hard to say.

I guess it will depend which tomic shows up, the tomic who lost early in his last challenger event, or the tomic then won his first atp title in australia 2013.

Yup, but it's exhibition so Stosur won't likely feel pressure.

Tomic/Stosur are probably going to gel much better than Milos/Genie, so slight edge to Australia.

Tomic, no doubt. He's on fire under the sun of Australia.

Atomic serves lively balls down tomics throat , haha, who knows an exhibition where tomic beat djokovic , then goes to get crushed by federer in real match.

Nard Dog treats the Hopman Cup like a GS, so he'll knock out that Canadian mug in straight sets.

Hard to say. Stosur plays like crap in Australia but its just an exhibition so she might not feel pressure. Bouchard is good but she's ridiculously over rated. To say she'll crack top 10 next season just doesn't make sense, she's not consistent enough yet. Stosur SHOULD win that match but since its in Australia we'll see.

Milos probably wins the mens match since tomic's return of serve is a joke

IF it comes down to doubles then id give the edge to Australia. Sam is a brilliant doubles player , far beyond what bouchard and raonic are but she'll still need tomic to play well because you cant win a doubles match alone.

Ill say Australia wins if stosur beats bouchard and they lose if she doesn't.I don't think the Canadians ever the doubles.
