Tennis fans don’t have to wait long for the ATP Tour to start again. And for the die-hard fanatics in particular, the Mubadala World Tennis Championships featuring Dominic Thiem, Andre Rublev, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and many other superstars presents an interesting alternative at least to shorten the season’s wait. By January 1, to be exact, the ATP Cup will start in 2022.

The competition format for the Davis Cup Finals is being used by many of the big stars in preparation for the Australian Open again this year – only Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer of the absolute best stars have so far canceled their debut in the team event. Also in Down Under: Germany and Austria, who only met each other a few days ago in the group stage of the Davis Cup finals in Innsbruck. This time the Austrians and their German rivals are increasingly entering the race – Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev announced their debut.

Tough start for Austria

As Chile opens on Saturday against Spain and Argentina against Georgia in today’s session, Austria and Germany will not start until Sunday. For the former, the first task in the team event is difficult: Dominic Thiem & Co will start against Russia, which after winning the Davis Cup finals with Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev and Aslan Karatsev also became the hottest in Australia. .
