Australia Off to Great Hopman Cup Start, But Bored of the Team

Australia has got off to a great start at the 2011 Hopman Cup. On day 1 Australia defeated Belgium by 2-1.

Ladies Singles: Justine Henin (BEL) def. Alicia Molik (AUS) = 6-4 6-4

Mens Singles: Lleyton Hewitt (AUS) def. Ruben Bemelmans = 6-4 6-3

Mixed Doubles: Molik/Hewitt (AUS) def. Henin/Bemelmans = 1-6 6-3 7-6 (10/8)

It was great see Australia win their first match of the 2011 Hopman Cup. However, Im getting a little bit tired of seeing the same players year after year after year. Is this because Australian tennis isnt producing quality youngsters or is it because the organisers are just trying to fill as many seats as possible and not blood young players into the limelight?

I have great respect for Molik and Hewitt. They have brought great honor to Australia since turning pro in the late 90’s. However, I agree that it would be nice to see some new blood, for Australia to establish its name as the home of real tennis champions.
