The five-day tournament will feature 12 teams divided into four groups. Watch the ATP Cup live!
The ATP Cup is a team-based tournament with 12 countries, divided into four groups, taking part.
There will be three teams in a group, who will play each other in a round-robin format, with the four group winners progressing to the semi-finals.
Each tie between countries is decided by two singles matches and a doubles match. Both singles and doubles will be a best-of-three sets matches.
In a slight change in rules, the doubles matches will have ‘No-Ad’ scoring – which means that in case of deuce (40-40), the pair winning the subsequent point is deemed to have won the game.
The matches will be played on two courts – the Rod Laver Arena and the John Cain Arena – which means that two groups play matches simultaneously.
There is a morning session - starting 4:30 AM IST featuring two groups each day - and an evening session – which begins at 12:00 PM IST featuring the other two groups.
The group stages will be played from Tuesday (February 2) through Thursday (February 4), the semi-finals are scheduled for Friday (February 5) with the final set for Saturday (February 6).
Serbia, led by Novak Djokovic, won the inaugural ATP Cup last year, and are thus the defending champions.
Group A – Serbia, Germany, Canada
Group B – Spain, Greece, Australia
Group C – Austria, Italy, France
Group D – Russia, Argentina, Japan
