The young, dynamic Canadian pairing of Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard are proving one of the most popular teams for the upcoming Hyundai Hopman Cup. The duo will ensure Canada’s participation at the mixed teams event for the first time in a decade and just the second time ever, and given their stunning individual seasons in 2013, they’re poised to do some major damage when they take to the Perth Arena to kick off the new year.

Raonic was just a few hundred points away from qualifying for the elite eight-man ATP World Tour finals in London, finishing a career-best season at world No.11 after peaking at No.10 for the first time in August 2013.

The big-serving 22-year-old won the ATP title in Bangkok as well as his third straight crown in San Jose back in February. Yet it was run to the final of the ATP Masters event in Montreal in front of rapturous home fans that was the big highlight – Raonic overcame quality opposition including then-seventh-ranked Juan Martin del Potro to reach the biggest final of his young career.

Bouchard also made waves in Canada, first at the concurrent WTA Premier event in Toronto, where she won through to the second round as a wildcard. But it was in Quebec City following the US Open that she enjoyed real success, reaching the semifinals before falling in three sets to eventual champion Lucie Safarova.

    Lorenzo: lamento coirnmcaute que el mas grande de la historia (segfan tus dichos) jugf3 dos partidos simulte1neamente: el primero y el faltimo!Partido increedble: Primer set con pleno control de la situacif3n y un rival que no le encontraba la vuelta no solo a Nadal sino a su propio juego. Contundente 6-1Segundo set: Quiebre tempranero y el Rafa se pone 3-1. Aqued comienza otro partido. Dodig empieza a meter todo lo que tira, a conectar furibundos aces al tiempo que Nadal se va deshilachando. Tie-break que gana con justicia el Croata.Tercer set: Calco del segundo, Nadal quiebra en el segundo game y llega a ponerse 3-0. Dodig recupera el break para ponerse 3-3 y es quebrado en el octavo juego. Nadal saca para partido, falla nuevamente y se llega a otro tie-break. El Croata lo juega sin achicarse (servicios majestuosos y derechas cruzadas certeras) terminando con las ilusiones del Mallorquedn tras el faltimo winner (reve9s cruzado fulminante). Lindo partido donde hubo uno que puso lo que le reclamamos a los nuestros y se llevf3 un merecido premio.
