The Hopman Cup is an international eight-team indoor hardcourt tennis tournament which plays mixed-gender teams on a country-by-country basis.It was held in Perth, Western Australia, in early January (sometimes commencing in late December) each year from 1989 to 2019. It was replaced on the calendar in 2020 by the ATP Cup, a newly created ATP event, but the International Tennis Federation has stated it will return in 2022 with the bidding process for a new venue on hold as of November 2020. The championship is named in honour of Harry Hopman (1906–1985), an Australian tennis player and coach who guided the country to 15 Davis Cup titles between 1938 and 1969. Since the Hopman Cup was founded in 1989, it has been attended each year by Hopman's widow, his second wife Lucy, who has travelled to the tournament from her home in the United States. The tournament is a sanctioned official event in the calendar of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) but, while individual player results are tallied, they are not regarded as official ATP matches or included in the calculation of ATP or WTA rankings. The competition receives extensive television coverage in Australia and is an important lead-up tournament to the Australian Open each January as part of the Australian Open Series.The winning team receives a silver cup perpetual trophy and through 2013 the winning team members were presented with distinctive individual trophies in the shape of a tennis ball designed and created by Brinkhaus Jewellers encrusted with diamonds from the Argyle diamond mine in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. In 2014 and 2015, the individual trophies were created in the shape of an intricate diamond encrusted tennis racket and ball, using just under an ounce of 18-carat white, yellow and rose gold and approximately half an ounce of pink argyle diamonds. These trophies are valued at $26,000. Until 2012, the Hopman Cup was played at the Burswood Dome. From 2013 to 2019, it was played at the Perth Arena.
Unlike other major international team tennis tournaments such as the Davis Cup and the Fed Cup, which are for men or women only, the Hopman Cup is a mixed competition in which male and female players are on combined teams and represent their countries. Players are invited to attend and national coaches are not involved in selecting teams.
Eight nations are selected annually to compete in the Hopman Cup. The "last" team may be decided by play-offs between several nations before competition begins. For the 2007 Hopman Cup however, this did not occur, due to the Asian Qualifying Tournament creating the eighth team. The official tournament website also has no qualifier listed in its schedule.
Each team consists of one male player and one female player. Each match-up between two teams at the championships consists of:
The eight competing teams are separated into two groups of four (with two teams being seeded) and face-off against each of the other three teams in their group in a round-robin format. These seedings ensure that each group has approximately similar strength. The top team in each group then meet in a final to decide the champions.
If a player is injured then a player of a lower ranking of that nation may be the substitute.
Since 2014 the Hopman Cup tournament director has been Paul Kilderry after the resignation of Steve Ayles.Previously, the former Australian tennis player Paul McNamee, who played a key role in the founding of the championships, was the tournament director.
Up to and including 2012, the venue was the Burswood Dome at the Burswood Entertainment Complex.
The 2005/06 Hopman Cup was the first elite-level tennis tournament in which the system was introduced allowing players to challenge point-ending line calls similar to that in clay court tournaments. The challenged calls are immediately reviewed on a large monitor using Hawk-Eye technology.
The 20th Hopman Cup, in 2008, was intended to be the last held at the Burswood Dome, however this was extended until 2012 when the new Perth Arena was due for completion.
In 2019 for the 31st edition of the tournament, a record crowd of 14,064 witnessed the 2019 Hopman Cup match between United States and Switzerland.This was also the highest attendance for a tennis match in Western Australian history.
Roger Federer is the most successful individual player in Hopman Cup history with 3 titles. He and Belinda Bencic became the first paring to successfully defend the title, having won it the previous year.
The Hopman Cup was originally broadcast by the Seven Network until 1994, then by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (1995–2010). From 2011, a five-year deal to broadcast the competition was signed by Network Ten, a deal which ended abruptly in November 2013. The Seven Network's 7mate channel subsequently picked up the telecasting rights.The Nine Network broadcast the tournament in 2019.
