TENNIS- The top 10 men’s singles players in the world have committed to play at the inaugural ATP Cup in Australia.

Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will play for their countries. Briton Andy Murray will also compete. In total, 27 of the world's top 30 male tennis players have committed to the event.

"We're delighted to see such a star-studded player field lining up," said ATP president Chris Kermode.

"Our belief was that week one in the calendar, together with Tennis Australia, would work best for player scheduling, and today's announcement is a confirmation of that," he added.

"Having the top players competing in this new global event is critical, and the ATP Cup looks set to kick off the ATP Tour season in a big way in 2020."

The ATP Cup is set to take place in the run up to Australian Open 2019 from January 3-12.
