The ATP Cup, organized since 2020, is a team event made up of four groups from four countries each. Each country will play three matches against the others in their group, including two singles matches and one doubles match.

At the end of the group stage, the leading team will advance to the semi-finals followed by the final. The knockout stages will use the same two singles format and one doubles format.

Countries are selected based on the ATP ranking of their best singles player. In 2022, 15 countries qualified with the help of their No.1 players, while host Australia received a wild card.

Spain lost Rafael Nadal, but had Roberto Bautista Agut at world No.19 to secure an entry into the ATP Cup. Switzerland and France did not qualify as their No.1 players, Roger Federer and Gaël Monfils respectively, did not register for the tournament. Instead, Georgia and the United States have taken their place.

Austria lost Dominic Thiem but did not lose his qualification as he only retired after confirmation of the schedule. Likewise, Novak Djokovic has also reportedly skipped the tournament, but Serbia will retain their qualification.


Place

The 2022 ATP Cup will be held at the Ken Rosewall Arena and Qudos Bank Arena, both in Sydney.
