Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to Lead the Star-Studded 2021 ATP Cup Field
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and World No. 2 Rafael Nadal headline the ATP Cup 2021 event as the top-ranked single players from Serbia and Spain, respectively. In 2020, Serbia defeated Spain 2-1 in a thrilling championship clash, which included a tantalizing match-up between Djokovic and Nadal.
The field is all set for the 2021 ATP Cup, to be held from the 1st to the 5th of February at Melbourne Park alongside two ATP 250 events with three tournaments being held before the Australian Open. Twelve countries will battle for the prestigious team trophy, with 2020 finalists Serbia and Spain leading the way.
The draw will take place on 20 January, when the 12 teams will be divided into four groups of three for the group stage, round-robin play. The four group winners will advance to the semi-finals in the ATP tour.
Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev will lead Team Russia, while Dominic Thiem will be in action for Team Austria, with 14 of the top 15 players in the ATP rankings to be involved. In this showpiece event, the players are looking forward to stepping up on the field to represent their countries again, and to show off some spectacular tennis action to their fans.
