Two of the biggest stars in the sport have signed on to the ATP Cup which begins February 1.

The 12-team field will be led by Novak Djokovic’s Serbia team and Rafael Nadal’s Spanish squad who will open their 2021 seasons in Melbourne.

Also scheduled to compete are Alexander Zverev, Diego Schwartzman, Dominic Thiem, Matteo Berrettini, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Daniil Medvedev, Kei Nishikori and home favorite Alex De Minaur.

This year’s ATP Cup will take place at Melbourne Park alongside two ATP 250 events, with the three tournaments being held the week before the Australian Open. The draw will take place on 20 January, when the 12 teams will be divided into four groups of three for group stage, round-robin play. The four group winners will advance to the semifinals.

Players can earn a maximum of 500 singles and 250 doubles ATP Rankings points. The ATP Cup is staged in partnership with Tennis Australia. The inaugural event, which was played in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney, was held in 2020 but this year due to the virus was relocated to Melbourne and the field was reduced.

With the tournament still four weeks away, expect many withdrawals and changes to the field.
