Murray to partner Robson in Hopman Cup
Tuesday 12 October 2010
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."
