THE Hop­man Cup is over but its statis­tics will be cur­rent un­til the 2016 event.

Poland’s Ag­nieszka Rad­wan­ska and Jerzy Janow­icz claimed the main prize at the event that at­tracted more than 95,742 fans into Perth Arena, but Amer­i­can Serena Wil­liams served down the fastest women’s ball at 200km/h.

Fa­mous faces among the crowds in­cluded Mar­garet Court, Ali­cia Mo­lik, Ea­mon Sul­li­van, Blake Gar­vey and Louise Pil­lidge and 50,000 coun­try hand-wa­ver flags were dis­trib­uted dur­ing this year’s event.

Nearly 1130 Wilson ten­nis balls were hit, 163 rac­quets re­strung, 1760 tow­els in­clud­ing 510 with per­son­alised em­broi­dery used and fans en­joyed 9510 ice creams, 6768 sand­wiches and 4600 bot­tles of wa­ter while watch­ing the ten­nis.
