Novak Djokovic headlines confirmed United Cup 2024 lineup

Novak Djokovic is set to make his debut at the 2024 United Cup, that also features Stefanos Tsitsipas, Iga Swiatek and the returning Angelique Kerber. 

Djokovic will represent Serbia alongside Hamad Medjedovic, Nikola Cacic, Olga Danilovic, Natalija Stevanovic and Dejana Radanovic in the new look United Cup that is set to kick-off the 2024 tennis season.

The mixed team event has been altered slightly for the 2024 edition with each tie taking place in only one session, including one men’s singles and one women’s singles match, followed by a mixed doubles match.

Last year, the inaugural United Cup was held between three cities (Sydney, Perth and Brisbane), but Brisbane will not be used for the tournament in 2024.

Serbia are one of 16 nations confirmed for the tournament, with two more countries to be announced based on rankings on 20th November.

Other top stars in the draw include world No.2 Iga Swiatek and Shanghai Masters champion Hubert Hurkacz representing Poland, with Taylor Fritz and Jessica Pegula once again representing defending champions USA.

The United Cup is set to begin the 2024 tennis season on Friday 29th December 2023, with the semi-finals and final taking place in Sydney on 6th and 7th January 2024.

Inside the baseline…

The changes made for the second edition of the United Cup are welcomed, as although the event was successful last year it did create some very one-sided matches on occasions. Novak Djokovic signing up for the tournament is a huge bonus for the tournament and everyone knows how much he enjoys representing his country, so he will be gunning for more silverware in the new year.
