Hopman Cup Postponed to 2025 Due to Olympic Conflict

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) and its partner Tennium have announced the postponement of the 2024 Hopman Cup to 2025. This decision was made due to the scheduling conflict with the Olympic Summer Games in Paris, which will also take place in France this year.

ITF President David Haggerty explained the rationale behind the postponement: “With both the Hopman Cup and Olympic Games due to take place in France this year, hitting pause on the Hopman Cup until 2025 is a sensible decision. The players who had committed to this year’s event have been informed, and we look forward to seeing them in the Cote d’Azur next year.”

The Hopman Cup, which was first launched in Perth in 1989, has long been considered the premier mixed-gender event in tennis. After a three-year absence, it returned to the calendar in 2023, moving from its traditional spot as a season opener to the summer. The event was held at the Nice Lawn Tennis Club in France.

The 2023 Hopman Cup featured a week of thrilling tennis, headlined by Top 10 players such as Carlos Alcaraz and Holger Rune. The final saw Croatia, led by Borna Coric and Donna Vekic, claim their second Hopman Cup title with a victory over Team Switzerland’s Céline Naef and Leandro Riedi.

Kristoff Puelinckx, Tennium Founder & CEO, expressed his anticipation for the 2025 Hopman Cup: “We are already looking forward to the 2025 Hopman Cup, and I’m excited to see more of the same thrilling tennis and fantastic crowds we enjoyed in 2023.”
