Mattek-Sands to replace Williams in Hopman Cup

Bethanie Mattek-Sands has been named to the USA Hopman Cup team. Mattek-Sands replaces Serena Williams, who was forced to withdraw from the tournament because of her foot injury. Mattek-Sands and John Isner will represent the USA in the international team event, which begins on January 1. The USA is in Group B, with Great Britain, Italy and France. Group A includes Serbia, Belgium, Australia, and Kazakhstan.

I think Mattek-Sands will do well in the Hopman format. Not unlike Fed cup, in a way, she can play doubles, singles and fight.

It's a nice opportunity for Mattek-Sands; I'm glad she's playing Hopman Cup. She and Isner don't play until the third day, when they compete against France.
