The groups are in!
The ATP Cup 2021 has announced the four groups competing in this year’s competition.
Each group is made up of three competing countries, with twelve teams facing off in Melbourne the week leading up to the Australian Open. Four players will represent each country.
The teams will compete in a round robin, facing each of the countries in their group in a tie. Each tie (or session) will consist of three matches – two singles matches and one doubles match. The country that wins two of the three matches takes out the tie.
Top seed Serbia, headlined by World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, will lead Group A, which will also include Germany and Canada – led by Alexander Zverev and Denis Shapovalov, respectively. One year ago, Serbia battled through the field to lift the inaugural ATP Cup trophy in Sydney.
Second seed Spain, who finished runner-up in 2020, will aim to move through Group B, which includes Greece and Australia. World No. 2 Rafael Nadal leads the way for his country for the second consecutive year, while Stefanos Tsitsipas will lead Team Greece and Alex de Minaur leads Australia.

Austria, headed by World No. 3 Dominic Thiem, will look to advance through Group C against Italy – led by Matteo Berrettini – and the Gael Monfils-headed France.
Fourth seed Russia, headlined by reigning Nitto ATP Finals champion Daniil Medvedev alongside Andrey Rublev, will try to do the same in Group D, which includes Argentina (led by Diego Schwartzman) and Japan (led by Kei Nishikori).
