Typically it is played a couple of weeks before the start of the 2020 season, and tennis fans cannot ask for a better way to kick start the New Year! The line-up features six top male players and two top female players who battled it out over the course of three days to take home an exciting prize.
However, there will be no such tournament played in the lead-up to the 2021 season because of the changes in the tennis calendar because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In many ways, the event is quite similar to the Hopman Cup, except it is not a sanctioned event by the International Tennis Federation.
