The Australian team led by Alex de Minaur and Ajla Tomljanovic will take the court at RAC Arena. Western Australian locals and doubles stars, world No.2 Storm Hunter, and world No.6 Matt Ebden are also set to play for Australia alongside John Millman and Ellen Perez.
Perth will also have its chance to witness one of the biggest tennis superstars with 24-time major champion and current world No.1, Novak Djokovic, leading Serbia. He will be joined in the team by rising star Olga Danilovic. Current women’s world number 2, Iga Swiatek will also be playing in Perth, representing Poland.
Tourism Minister Rita Saffioti commented, “Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek are some of the world’s most famous and best tennis players, and we cannot wait to welcome them to play in Perth this summer, plus of course, our Aussie stars led by Alex de Minaur and Ajla Tomljanovic.”
“Last year’s inaugural United Cup injected millions into the WA economy and we are thrilled to see the event return this year, to drive out-of-state visitation to WA and to give the local community an opportunity to see some of the world’s best tennis action at RAC Arena.”
