World class field to play at 2014 Hopman Cup

World class field to play at 2014 Hopman Cup
October 9, 2013

The Hyundai Hopman Cup 2014 is aiming to top this year's record-breaking debut at Perth Arena with a star-studded world-class line-up.

The final player list for the event includes world No.4 Agnieszka Radwanska, Petra Kvitova (No.7), Sloane Stephens (No.12), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (No.9), Milos Raonic (No.11), John Isner (No.13), Jerzy Janowicz (No.15) and Tommy Robredo (No.19).

Western Australian acting Tourism Minister John Day said it would be one of the strongest and most evenly balanced fields in the 26-year history of WA's unique international mixed teams' event.

Acting Minister Day stated "the 2014 Hyundai Hopman Cup will see a week of tightly contested, world-class tennis matches involving a fantastic mix of the game's proven and emerging stars.

"A record-breaking 104,000 spectators attended the Hopman Cup in 2013 and the quality of the 2014 field is likely to give that mark a real nudge.

"Home town fans will have plenty to cheer about with Australia being represented by the nation's top ranked male and female players in Bernard Tomic and Samantha Stosur."

The Western Australian Government, through Eventscorp, is a founding sponsor of the Hyundai Hopman Cup.

Acting Minister Day added "when we talk about successful home grown West Australian events, the Hopman Cup is right at the top of the list.

"As well as generating huge spectator interest, the Hopman Cup is broadcast into 185 countries, including the State's key tourism markets, providing valuable promotion of WA.

"I want to congratulate the International Tennis Federation and Tennis Australia for again pulling together a great field of players that will thrill spectators and television viewers alike."

Tickets for the Hyundai Hopman Cup 2014 are on sale through Ticketek.
