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.”
