Default Hopman Cup / please post your wishes/ideas

i start this thread to get some ideas how to run the event and how the draw / rules should look like

my ideas:

# 8 teams
# singles ranking will count for the draw
# 2-3 players per team
# only one team per nation
# 2 singles and 1 doubles match to decide the tie
# if a team has 3 players there should be a captain for the team who names the singles players and doubles team for the tie
# is a qualy round possible ?
# is it possible to play for another nation as the home country ?

I wanted to see this as a realistic competition, with one male and one female player in each team, like real Hopman cup

I had a plan for Hopman cup, but when I saw I wasnt going to run it, I didn't give that attencion and now I don't remember

well, it's how Hopman cup is played we could allow country changes only for this competition.

Those countries have bad luck then. That's just how life is.

There are still three nice tournaments at the same time.

One question, is there enough players that are interested in playing here when there's three ATP tournaments and one challenger played at the same time? Would be good to see some names here that are sure they want to play this...

Is Croatia playing here? And if we are, I don't think it would be possible for us to have male/female team...

Default Re: Hopman Cup / please post your wishes/ideas

I would play here but several things:

There is one other poster who plays for Serbia, and they actually are Serbian unlike me. Grofica. But are our rankings high enough to get in? I don't even know for sure if they're male or female (sorry!!!) Or if they'd even want to play here.

Otherwise I'd gladly play here, but it seems I will probably be unable to. If you allowed country changes just for this event, I'd be willing to represent my real country or that of anyone who wanted to play with me.

So whatever you guys decide, if it's just bad luck for me that TT hasn't spread rapidly among real Serbians, than that's fine. I'll just play with Viktor Troicki in my imagination.

Grofica is Tanja in real life, so she is a girl

I would be willing to play in this event, but I am likely to be away over Xmas and New Year, and do not know whether I will have internet access yet, so it would be unfair on Team GB if I couldnt get picks in

So Grofica and I still can't play because we're both girls.
