So, you are replacing the ATP Cup with the Hopman Cup, which was replaced by the ATP Cup in the first place

You know, it is almost as if you should never have replaced the Hopman Cup in the first place.

in saying that, it looks more like an ATP/WTA Cup than the ITF run Hopman Cup. Tennis, the ability to fight battles amongst itself.

Meh, I liked the first version of the ATP Cup (pre-covid), couldn't really care less about the Hopman Cup

If it's an ATP/WTA run thing with points then I am all for it

The ATP say they won't give out ranking points if the ban goes ahead.

Yet, some members of the ATP tour are unhappy with this move - What are these players thinking ! You can't have ranking points when certain players are ineligible for the tournament.

I don't think she would trade that gold medal for a slam title. Meant the world to her. Sad that injures robbed her a chance to build on that success.
