The second edition of the ATP Cup will be played in January-February 2021, and will teams from 12 countries participate in it. It had replaced the traditionally played Hopman Cup and be hosted in Australia, played across different cities in the country in 2020.
For 2021, a lot will depend on the situation with Covid19 at that stage and we will update you with the intricacies involving the tournament if it indeed goes ahead.
The ATP Cup replaced Hopman Cup and is a men’s-only event that is played on outdoor hard court to kick-start the 2020 season. The three Australian cities that hosted the tournament in 2020 included Perth, the original host of the Hopman Cup, Brisbane and Sydney.
24 teams or countries participated in its first ever edition that was played over 10 days starting from January 2020. Something similar was expected for the 2021 edition of the tournament too.
This ATP tournament is much like the ATP World Team Cup, which was played in Dusseldorf from 1978-2012 before being scrapped.
With a prize money of $22 million along with 750 ranking points, this is expected to be a big event, one that former ATP Player Council President Novak Djokovic had described as:
“I like that it’s owned by ATP, by the players, and that we have ranking points, and it’s going to be the best way to kick start the season. Australia is a country that has a Grand Slam, that nurtures tennis tradition.”
It would be interesting to see how the first season goes given the competition from the newly-formatted Davis Cup and the Rogers Cup, two others men’s teams events in the calendar.
2021 ATP Cup Schedule & Dates
The second season of the ATP Cup is expected to be played from February 1 to 5 with 12 teams taking part in this tournament. These 12 teams will be placed in four groups of three apiece and the top side at the end of the round-robin group stage will make it to the semifinals.

What Happened at the 2020 ATP Cup?
The highly anticipated inaugural ATP Cup finally had a victor: Serbia. Winning all three group ties and subsequently the quarterfinals against Canada and the semifinals against Russia, Serbia had set itself on the top of the leader board facing robust competition from only Spain.
The first singles match was won by Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut who beat Serbia’s no.2 Dusan Lajovic ending with a no-loss record at the tournament. Setting up a doubles decider match, Djokovic won the second singles match 6-2, 7-6 (7-4) against Rafael Nadal leaving the top Spaniard disappointed.
Instrumental to the doubles match, Djokovic teamed up with Viktor Troicki to beat the duo of Pablo Carreno Busta and Feliciano Lopez 6-3, 6-4 as Spain chose to not opt for Nadal to play the doubles decider. A definite boost for the seven-time Australian Open champion, the commencement of the first major of the season will see the defending champion Djokovic and a well-rested 2019 runner-up Nadal bid for the title once again.
