MURRAY AND ROBSON REUNITE FOR HOPMAN CUP

Andy Murray will again warm up for the
Australian
Open by partnering Laura Robson at
the
Hopman
Cup.

Tournament organisers announced today the British pair will
compete in Perth in January as they look to better last year’s run
to the final, where they were beaten by Spain.

World number four Murray will then turn his attention to
Melbourne and his quest to land his first grand slam crown.

Murray reached the final last year before being beaten by Roger
Federer.

On his return to the Hopman Cup, the Scot said today: ”I’m
looking forward to going back to the Hopman Cup.

”For me, it was a good start to the year and we went pretty
close to winning. I look forward to playing with Laura once
again.”

Tournament director Paul McNamee said: ”Andy Murray is a rare
talent so we are delighted he is coming back.

”His racquet work last year was a joy to watch. Laura continues
to develop and get better. They have a real chance once
again.”
