The Summer of Tennis Slams Into Brisbane
Some of the world's best tennis players return to the Pat Rafter Arena at the Queensland Tennis Centre 3-12 January 2020 to face off in 2 consecutive tournaments - the Women's Brisbane International and the ATP Cup. This means that Brisbane will play host to tennis at its best over 10 days this summer.

The Women's Brisbane International
This year's Women's Brisbane International Program will see female players, including Australian and World Number 1 local Ash Barty, former World Number 1 Naomi Osaka and seven time Grand Slam winner Venus Williams, lead an all star line-up of tennis talent.

The tournament provides important preparation for many of the players in the lead up to the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year. The Women's Brisbane International runs from 6-12 January 2019. Day, night and all day passes are available.

National pride will be on the line as players represent their countries in the ATP Cup. France, Germany, Greece and Australia are just some of the nations and their players swinging into action as the ATP Cup.

Twenty-four countries will be competing across Brisbane, Perth and Sydney over 10 intense days, culminating in the winner-takes-all Final Eight in Sydney.

The format is based on nations being split into six groups, with eight teams emerging from the round-robin stage to compete in the knockout phase, until only one team is left standing. There will be up to five players in each team, with ties comprising two singles matches and one doubles match. The criteria for entry into the ATP Cup will be based off the ATP Ranking of the No. 1 singles player from each country.

The Brisbane arms runs from 3-8 January 2019 at the Queensland Tennis Centre.
