ATP Cup confirm final teams

The remaining countries set to compete in the ATP Cup this January have been confirmed.

The ATP Cup has announced the final teams set to compete in January’s inaugural competition.

The initial 18-top-ranked countries were announced earlier this year, and will now be joined by six final countries.

The final countries qualifying for the men’s tournament are Bulgaria (replacing Switzerland due to Roger Federer’s withdrawal), Chile, Poland, Uruguay, Moldova and Norway.

The top 24 qualifying countries are drawn based on the nation’s top-ranked men’s singles player.

Nine of the top ten and 26 of the top 30 have already committed to play, including stars such as Novak Djokovic, Alex Zverev, a returning Andy Murray and a lethal Aussie combo of Alex De Minaur and Nick Kyrgios.

Of the additional six countries to qualify, the top two players to confirm their participation are:

Bulgaria | Grigor Dimitrov and Dimitar Kuzmanov
Chile | Cristian Garin and Nicolas Jarry
Poland | Hubart Hurkacz and Kamil Majchrzak
Uruguay | Pablo Cuevas and Martin Cuevas
Moldova | Radu Albot and Alexander Cozbinov
Norway | Casper Ruud and Viktor Durasovic

Bulgaria and Grigor Dimitrov will replace Switzerland in Group C in Sydney, alongside Moldova. Poland will also head to Sydney, taking the remaining spot in Group E.
