Starting with 2020, the ATP circuit will have an exciting new tournament, which will start at the beginning of the year. It’s called the “ATP Cup”, a Davis Cup-like competition, with prizes totalling $ 15 million USD.
The first edition of the ATP Cup will take place from January 3 to 12, 2020, in Australia. Brisbane, Perth and Sydney will host the matches. It was an interesting move from ATP, which created a really powerful tournament, the perfect warmup for the Australian Open.
ATP Cup 2020 Format
The tournament will kickoff with a group format. There will be 6 groups (from A to F), consisting of 4 teams each. 24 countries will participate in the tournament, each team having 3 players, in order of the ATP ranking of each player.
Obviously, the main favorites are Serbia, Spain, Germany, Greece, Russia and Austria. Of these countries, Greece has the lowest chances, being represented by only one valuable player (Stefanos Tsitsipas). A great absence will be the team of Switzerland, which would have been led by Roger Federer.
