    Andy Murray to partner Laura Robson in Hopman Cup.

    Not a big fan of Murray but i must say there is a gentler kinder side that is starting to appear from the shadows, not to long ago he played in some small tennis event that didnt even have ball boys, he has love for the game in its purest form like a little 10 year old. Go on Andy you are starting to win the respect of all fans (not just the Brits).

    • Blimey, that’s really selfless of him, especially as it clashes with Doha. It’s good to see him put something back into the game he clearly loves and give her a fantastic opportunity. Don’t follow his career, but he’s definitely gone up in my estimation.

      Thanks for the info.

      • Andy and Laura's entry has now been confirmed. The teams that have been announced thus far are as follows:

        UK - Andy Murray & Laura Robson
        Australia - Lleyton Hewitt & Sam Stosur
        Germany - Philipp Kohlschreiber & Sabine Lisicki
        Romania - Victor Hanescu & Sorana Cirstea
        USA - John Isner & Melanie Oudin
        Russia - Igor Andreev & Elena Dementieva
        Spain - Tommy Robredo & Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez

        I hope that UK are drawn in the same group as the USA. It would be interesting to see Robson and Oudin face off. The last time they played Laura thrashed Oudin on her way to winning the Wimbledon juniors. However a fair bit's happened since then.

        Let's hope Eurosport show this event. They have done in the past.
