It’s been a banner year for global superstars making their way to Perth, and we’re capping it off in style with the returning United Cup, taking over RAC Arena from December 29-January 3.

Mixed teams from 18 countries will compete across two cities (us and Sydney) over a 10-day period, competing for not only national pride but a whopping USD $10 million in prize money, and 500 ranking points.

Most exciting for tennis fans is the news that Serbian world No. 1 Novak Djokovic will be a part of his country’s team, while women’s world No. 2 Iga Swiatek will also be appearing, representing Poland.
