FWTT Hopman Cup 2020







HOW IT WORKS?

The Hopman Cup is an international hardcourt tennis tournament which plays mixed-gender teams on a country-by-country basis. The championship is named in honour of Harry Hopman (1906–1985), an Australian tennis player and coach who guided the country to 15 Davis Cup titles between 1938 and 1969.
The competition isn't dead here! :cheer:

FORMAT

Each team consists of one male player and one female player. Each match-up between two teams at the championships consists of:

One women's singles match
One men's singles match
One mixed doubles match

The competing teams are separated into two groups and face-off against each of the other teams in their group in a round-robin format. Depending on how many teams it will work like this:

8 entries - 2 groups of 4 + SF + F
12 entries - 4 groups of 3 + SF + F
16 entries - 4 groups of 4 + SF + F
...

No ranking points will be offered but it's an opportunity to test new strategies and create friendships enemies and some drama :eek:h:



HOW TO SIGN-UP?

Each player should commit and post the following information:

Your Country
Name of your FWTT player: no Juniors
Male partner: I strongly reccomend an ATP player with zimbio.com pictures


A country may have two teams if we have more than 8 teams.


HOW TO SEND POINTS?

Each tie consists in three matches. You will have three sets of points: 115, 110 and 105 points. You will determine how many points you will be using in each match.

Example 1:
Dinara Safina (105) - 50-50-05
Marat Safin (115) - 50-50-15
Mixed Doubles (110) - 50-50-10

Example 2:
