Tomic to team with Stosur at Hopman Cup
Australia’s top ranked players Bernard Tomic and Sam Stosur have today confirmed they will play at Hyundai Hopman Cup 2014.
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.52, 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.
Tomic last year teamed with Ash Barty to represent Australia at the international mixed teams event, staged for the first time at the new Perth Arena in 2013.
He won all three of his singles matches, including a 6-4 6-4 defeat of world No.1 Novak Djokovic.
Also on Tuesday came the announcement of the Polish team, to feature Agnieszka Radwanska and Jerzy 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,” he said.
