The top male tennis players from 24 countries will compete in the first ever ATP Cup next year. The highly anticipated tournament will take place over 10 days next year and Perth will host several matches at the RAC Arena.
The 19 countries already qualified for the inaugural ATP Cup were each assigned to one of six groups and host cities - Brisbane, Perth or Sydney - following the official tournament draw.
WA will host some of the biggest names across two groups; Group B, consisting of Spain, Japan, Georgia and Group D, which will see Russia, Italy and the USA battle it out. World No. 2 Rafael Nadal will headline in Perth, competing here for the first time in his career. Nadal will be joined by fellow hot shots, Daniil Medvedev (World No. 4), Kei Nishikori (World No. 8), and rising superstar Fabio Fognini (World No.11).
Five further countries will qualify to make up the fourth spot in each group, bringing the total to 24 competing countries. The deadline for the second entry will be November 13, based on the ranking of their No. 1 singles player.
