ATP Cup (Australia, Jan. 3—12)
The inaugural staging of this men’s-only event will be held in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney. The cities will host round-robin matches before an eight-team knockout phase in Sydney. With 24 teams battling in six groups of four, the nation-based event guarantees players multiple matches at the start of the season, and awards ATP points.
This event started on January 2, 2020.

Fed Cup (Budapest, April 13—19) and Davis Cup (Madrid, Nov. 23—29)
Originating in 1900 and 1963, respectively, these are tennis’ best-known team events. In 2019, Davis Cup’s four-round, year-long schedule was changed in favor of a one-week championship; Fed Cup will shift to that format this year. Eight nations will compete in the Fed Cup Final; 18 will compete in the Davis Cup Final.

Laver Cup (Boston, Sept. 25—27)
The brainchild of Federer and his agent, Tony Godsick, this team event pitting Europe against The World made its debut in 2017. Points increase with each day. The ATP sanctioned the event in 2019, though it does not award ranking points. While it has been a hit so far, Laver Cup hasn’t been tested without its founder, Federer, competing—which could be the truest barometer of its staying power.
