Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will once again lead a strong ATP Cup line-up after the full line-up was confirmed for the tournament. 

The world’s top two were brilliant for their countries last year, with Serbia eventually pipping Spain in the final of the inaugural event.

This year will be a shortened version due to coronavirus complications, but 14 of the world’s top 15 players are taking part, with Roger Federer the one exception.

Australia have been granted a wild card as hosts, with Kei Nishikori using his protected ranking to get Japan a spot.

“Playing as a team, for one’s country, is a rare privilege in tennis which brings the best out of our players,” ATP Cup Managing Director Ross Hutchins said.

“This was highlighted by the incredible matches and camaraderie on display at last year’s inaugural ATP Cup.

“We would like to thank our partners, Tennis Australia, for their dedication and commitment to staging this year’s tournament, which promises to deliver a strong start to the new 2021 season.

“We cannot wait for tennis fans around the world to again share in the excitement and energy of this special event.”

ATP Cup Tournament Director Tom Larner added: “Last year we launched the global tennis season with the inaugural ATP Cup.

“It was a huge success with both players and fans, and we are excited to present the second edition in Melbourne in 2021.

“The players are looking forward to stepping up and representing their countries again, and the field, including defending champions Serbia and finalists Spain, is strong.

“This is a format that shows off the passion of the players and we’re expecting some spectacular tennis action.”
