The tournament will take place from December 29 to January 8 in three cities: Perth, Brisbane and Sydney. Two groups of three each will compete. The top teams from the same city groups will then play to advance to the Final Four in Sydney, with the top losers of those matches finishing off the field.
Second seed Poland plays in Brisbane in Group B with Switzerland and Kazakhstan. Group E: Italy, Brazil and Norway will also compete in this city. The group stage will be a round robin, and one match will consist of men’s, women’s singles and mixed doubles.

“It’s very exciting. There are so many great, good bands. It’s going to be a big event, we can’t wait. In tournaments like this, tennis gets even more fun, everyone is on the same bench, cheering for each other, jumping… It’s also a great warm-up before Australian Open… Such events are especially ideal for the start of the season, – Radwańska assessed in an interview published on the official WTA website.
Poland will be represented by women’s ranking leader Iga Świątek and tenth in the ATP rankings Hubert Hurkacz.
– For me, it would be difficult to lead such excellent players as Iga and Hubert. It’s one thing to play on the field, but quite another to sit on the bench. I don’t know which is more difficult, Radwańska said, maybe I’ll find out right away.
The eventual winner at Wimbledon a decade ago has the same mixed-team tournament experience. In 2015, she triumphed in the Hopman Cup with Jerzy Janowicz.
“I’m glad we don’t have any generation gap. Polish tennis has gotten better in recent years. Kids, their parents and people in general think you can play well and get high. I think I started this surge in tennis’ popularity, and Iga and Hubert have continued to do so, so no It could be better – said the 33-year-old Polish woman, who ended her career in 2018.
Radwańska will share captain’s duties with her husband, Dawid Celt.
