The 2020 ATP Cup will be a men’s tennis tournament held at three cities in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney.
A revamped World Team Cup will take place in the first week of January from 2020. This is the first edition of the tournament and will be the first time that there has been an ATP team tournament since the last edition of the World Team Cup in 2012.
The World Team Cup in Austrialia will take place in partnership with Tennis Australia and will feature 24 tennis teams, offering $15m in prize money. To improve the tournament, ATP also announced that ranking points will also be available.
ATP Cup 2020 without Federer and Murray
Switzerland’s Roger Federer has decided to cancel the ATP Cup in January for “family reasons”. The Rogers decision means Switzerland no longer qualify for this event. Switzerland had been drawn in the same group as Great Britain, who qualified after Andy Murray confirmed his entry, but latest information from Great Britain team weren’t promising.
The three-time Grand Slam champion, 32, was aiming to play in his first Grand Slam singles event since Melbourne 12 months ago, when he announced that his career might be over because of injury. This time, the pelvic injury has stopped Andy on his comeback.
