Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal confirmed in star-studded ATP Cup line-up
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic have all signed-up for the upcoming inaugural ATP Cup in what is a stunning confirmed line-up.
The ATP Cup launches in Janaury as a rival to the Davis Cup, with countries represented by the top players they have – using ranking points as an incentive.
That has attracted some absolute star names making up some veritable dream-teams in tennis.
Andy Murray will also be there, with him opting to use his protected ranking to get an otherwise ineligible Great Britain into the tournament.
“We’re delighted to see such a star-studded player field lining up for the inaugural ATP Cup,” Kermode told atptour.com.
“Our belief was that week one in the calendar, together with Tennis Australia, would work best for player scheduling, and today’s announcement is a confirmation of that.
“Having the top players competing in this new global event is critical.”
