Second Serve

The field is set for the 2021 ATP Cup, with 12 four-player teams set to battle for the trophy on February 1-5 in Melbourne.

14 of the ATP’s current Top 15 are currently set to compete at the 12-team event. Qualification is based on the ranking of each country’s tp-ranked singles player, while Australia qualifies thanks to a host wild card.

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.

About the ATP Cup Format:

Each tie will be comprised of two singles matches and one doubles match. The country that wins two matches will win the tie. Every country will be guaranteed to play two ties in the group stages. Singles will be best-of-three tie-break sets. Doubles will feature No-Ad scoring and a Match Tie-break in lieu of a third set.

About the Order of Play at ATP Cup:

There is a day session and an evening session each day. The No. 2 players will play first in each tie, followed by the No. 1 players, with the doubles to follow. All doubles matches will be played regardless of whether the tie is decided after the two singles matches except if the final is decided after the two singles matches. In that event, the doubles will not be played.
