Perth:

Former U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur will team up with Bernard Tomic as hosts Australia attempt to break a 14-year title drought at the Hopman Cup mixed teams tennis tournament.

Stosur will play the event for the first time since 2010, while Tomic returns after beating world No. 1 Novak Djokovic at last year's tournament. He went on to reach the third round of the Australian Open, losing to Roger Federer, and the fourth round at Wimbledon.

World No. 4 Aganieszka Radwanska will team with Wimbledon semifinalist Jerzy Janowicz as Poland makes its debut at the tournament which runs from Dec. 28 to Jan 4.

Organizers said a new partner is being sought for France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga after the sudden retirement of Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli. Five more teams will be named over the coming month.

Radwanska hoped she and Janowicz can make a mark in Poland's debut.

"I've never played mixed doubles with (Jerzy) before," Radwanska said. "Actually my last mixed doubles match was I think five years ago, so that will be fun for sure."
