Perth, Australia, 14 November 2013 |

Returning to the Perth Arena as Hyundai Hopman Cup defending champions, Spain is a nation that many fans will be interested to catch a glimpse of in action.

The feisty Anabel Medina Garrigues will return for the Spanish team, yet joining her in 2014 will not be her partner of last year, Fernando Verdasco, but instead Hopman Cup veteran Tommy Robredo.
