Top tennis players headed to Sydney
Some of the world’s best tennis players, including Roger Federer and Andy Murray, will head to Sydney in January 2020 to compete in the inaugural ATP Cup.
Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres said the ATP Cup will bring a whole new level of tennis to the Australian Summer.
“With the upgrades to Ken Rosewall Arena, which include a brand-new canopy roof structure, Sydney is more than ready to showcase both the group and finals stages of this world-class tournament,” Mr Ayres said.
The tennis tournament will take place from 3 – 12 January 2020 across Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. The tournament will be held in Sydney at Ken Rosewall Arena, Sydney Olympic Park.
Sydney will host tennis players from Switzerland, Great Britain, Belgium, Austria, Croatia and Argentina in the group stages.
Twenty-four countries will compete in the tournament. The final eight will head to Sydney to play in the finals for $22 million prize money and 750 ATP ranking points.
All of the current top 10-ranked men’s tennis players will compete. World number one Novak Djokovic will represent Serbia in Brisbane, while world number two Rafael Nadal will represent Spain in Perth.
