Djokovic, Nadal, Federer commit to new ATP Cup

Sydney: Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are among the global top 10 who will play for their countries at the new ATP Cup in Australia in January, organisers said today.

Andy Murray, returning from hip surgery, will also compete, with his protected world ranking of two giving Britain entry to the tournament even though they are outside of the 24-team qualifying cut-out. In total, 27 of the world’s top 30 male tennis players have committed to the event.

“We’re delighted to see such a star-studded player field lining up,” said ATP president Chris Kermode.
