Hopman Cup

The Hopman Cup is an international tennis tournament that was played in Perth from 1989 to 2019 and will be played in Nice, France in 2023.

The tournament is one of the few places where you can see top ATP and WTA players playing together and against each other.

A good example of this was when Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic played Serena Williams and Frances Tiafoe in doubles at the 2019 tournament.
