Belgium is a nation that has competed at six Hopman Cup tournaments and first competed in the 12th Hopman Cup in 2000. Belgium has been the runner-up on one occasion, in 2011, when they finished second in their group but after Serbia's withdrawal from the final due to an abdominal injury sustained by Ana Ivanovic, they were promoted to face USA in the final.[1]
