ATP Cup Explained
THE MOST EXCITING NEW TOURNAMENT IN TENNIS
Debuting in 2020 as the world's most exciting and innovative new tennis tournament, ATP Cup brings together the sport's best players competing as a team with their countrymen.
Held in three Australian cities - Perth, Brisbane and Sydney - 24 countries are allocated into six groups of four for round-robin play. The six group winners and two best second-placed teams advance to the Final Eight knockout stage in Sydney.
The tournament features innovations such as Hawk-Eye Live, on-court Team Zones with in-match data analysis on tablets, off-court strategy rooms and more.
All ties feature singles matches between the respective No. 1 players and No. 2 players, followed by one doubles match.
In 2020, Novak Djokovic guided Serbia to victory over a Rafael Nadal-led Spanish team. In 2021, a smaller 12-country tournament was played entirely in Melbourne due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Russia, boasting Top 10 stars Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev, defeated Italy in the final.
