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.
“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,” Mr Day said.
“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 State Government, throuh Eventscorp, is a proud founding sponsor of the Hyundai Hopman Cup.
“When we talk about successful home grown West Australian events, the Hopman Cup is right at the top of the list,” the Acting Minister said.
“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.”
