Stosur, Tomic, Radwanska and Janowicz to Play Hopman Cup

Janowicz 88

Jerzy Janowicz

(August 19, 2013) Australia’s top ranked players Sam Stosur and Bernard Tomic  have confirmed they will play at Hyundai Hopman Cup 2014.

 

Current world No.4 Agnieszka Radwanska and Wimbledon semifinalist Jerzy Janowicz are also set to team up as Poland makes its debut at the event.

 

World No.13 Stosur is excited to return to Western Australia for the first time since 2010.

 

“I just wanted to get back to Perth. I thought this year I’d try something different again,” said Stosur, the 2011 US Open champion.

 

“It will be nice to be able to play. You know that you’re going to get three matches … and maybe that’s going to be good for me going into the Aussie Open.

 

“Hopefully that’s going to be the secret formula to me doing well,” added Stosur.

 

Tomic, 20, and the youngest player currently in the top 100, will pair with Stosur as he looks to continue his unbeaten record at Perth Arena.

 

“I had some success there earlier this year so hopefully I can do well again in 2014,” said the world No.42, who recently reached the fourth round at Wimbledon.

 

“The event always attracts strong teams so you know you’re going to get some tough matches against high quality players.

 

“The local crowds love their tennis and it’s always exciting to play in front of them,” added the Queenslander, who won his first ATP singles title in Sydney in January.

 

Radwanska and Janowicz will be looking to make their mark when Team Poland makes its first ever appearance at the event.

 

“I’m really excited to play the Hopman Cup for the first time,” said Radwanska, who holds 12 WTA singles titles at just 24 years of age.

 

“I’ve never played mixed doubles with him [Jerzy] before.  Actually my last mixed doubles match was I think five years ago so that will be fun for sure.”

 

Twenty-two-year-old Janowicz has climbed up the rankings by 73 places to be just outside the top 10 in the past 12 months.

 

“We decided it might be a lot of fun to play together at Hopman Cup,” said Janowicz.

 

Hyundai Hopman Cup Event Director Steve Ayles is delighted with the signing of the top Australian and Polish pairs.

 

“Sam and Bernie, Australia’s highest ranked players, have committed to play this event, which shows the strength and value of the Hyundai Hopman Cup. The players look at the event as a solid starting point for the new season.

Bartoli and Tsonga to Represent France in Hopman Cup

JoWilfried Tsonga 1Bartoli fist pump

(July 16, 2013) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and newly crowned Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli confirmed they will represent France at the Hyundai Hopman Cup, the first team to be announced for the 2014 event.

 

Tsonga, the current world No. 8 and four-time Grand Slam semi-finalist, has chosen Perth to start his season campaign in the New Year.

 

“I’m just really happy to go back and hope I will have some fun like last year,” said Tsonga, who is coached by Australian Roger Rasheed.

 

“It’s the best preparation because it’s the same court as the Australian Open. It’s always really hot there.

 

“I think it’s just unbelievable. I remember last year outside was 40 degrees and inside it was just perfect to play tennis,” Tsonga continued.

 

The popular Frenchman has maintained a Top 10 ranking for four of the past five years and currently holds ten ATP singles titles. He captured his latest in Marseille, France in February and went on to reach the semi-finals of his home Grand Slam, the French Open, in May.

 

Tsonga will pair with the in-form world No.7 Marion Bartoli, hot off her title run at Wimbledon this month.

 

“It’s great to play with Jo, obviously. He’s an awesome player. We have known each other for so many years. I’m sure it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Bartoli said.

 

The 28-year-old blitzed the field at the All England Club less than a fortnight ago, defeating seven opponents without losing a set, to win her first Grand Slam title and the sport’s most prestigious trophy.

 

This will be Bartoli’s second appearance at Hyundai Hopman Cup after she reached the final of the 2012 competition with partner Richard Gasquet before falling short to Czech pair Petra Kvitova and Tomas Berdych.

 

“I really had a blast when I played in Perth. I was really lucky to make the final for my first time and I really enjoyed my time on and off the court.  It’s a great, fun competition to play and I’m so happy to be back.”

 

Bartoli, who has eight WTA singles titles to her name, has only heard good things about playing at Perth Arena.

 

“I’ve heard the new stadium is absolutely amazing, so it’s going to be cool. I’ve heard it’s really like Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne,” she added.

 

Hyundai Hopman Cup Event Director Steve Ayles said the signing of an all-star French line-up was a real win for the event.

 

“To have two Top 10 players such as Tsonga and Bartoli contend this unique ITF mixed teams’ event is very special and will be a fantastic spectacle for tennis fans,” Ayles said.

 

“Bartoli has shown she is a player of incredible talent in recent weeks and we’re excited to welcome her back to Perth. It will be the 18th time in the competition’s history the field has boasted a reigning Grand Slam champion.

 

“Working with the WA Government through Tourism WA and Eventscorp, City of Perth and Tennis West will allow us to not only promote an iconic sporting event but also grow interest and participation in tennis,” Ayles continued.

Swear I don’t swear

Andy Murray commented that he did not promise not to swear:

 

“I was doing an interview over the phone. I got asked about swearing on the court. I said ‘obviously I don’t mean to do it. I don’t want to do it. Sometimes you get frustrated and you do and obviously I will try to stop.’

“I didn’t make any promises or guarantees that I was going to.

“Then it came out that I’ve said this year I will stop swearing. What I also said was that a lot of players swear on the court and a lot of people say a lot worse things than me – in other languages. It doesn’t get picked up the same.

“So where I would obviously love to stop doing it, I try not to. But I can’t guarantee it.”
