Good field this year, and some very intriguing women's singles match-ups, too. Especially in Group A. Though, of course, I'm sure the Kvitova/Stepanek pairing will get the most attention.

Of the eight women, we've got two who have won slams, a slam finalist and two more who've made slam semis over the past three seasons.

Nice. :)

I think it's a great group, too. Tommy Robredo is King of Hopman Cup, so Spain is strong just by showing up, especially since he's in the midst of a comeback.

Australia potentially has a strong chance this year, too. I'm so glad that Flavia is playing for Italy!
