The Australian summer of tennis is here and it all gets underway with the Hopman Cup in Perth, starting on Saturday, December 30 at 1pm (AEDT) with Roger Federer headlining the field. This is The Roar‘s ultimate guide to live streaming the tournament online and watching it on TV.

All matches of the tournament will be held at Perth Arena, with the final to take place from 7pm (AEDT) on Saturday, January 6.

Unlike other tennis tournaments, the Hopman Cup is a team-based tournament. Eight nations will be represented by one male and one female player, with the teams then split into two groups.

Across the course of the week, the four teams will play three tie’s against the other teams in their group, with each tie consisting of two singles matches (one male, one female) and a mixed doubles match played under Fast 4 rules.

The two group winners will then square off in a final on Saturday, January 6 at 7pm (AEDT).

Last year’s champions were Richard Gasquet and Kristina Mladenovic of France, however, they have not returned to defend their crown.

Australia’s team has also had a change. Daria Gavrilova returns for another year, however, Nick Kyrgios has decided to play in the Brisbane International and will be replaced by Thanasi Kokkinakis in Perth.

How to watch the tournament on TV

Channel Seven hold broadcast rights to the Hopman Cup. They will be broadcasting every match across the course of the week through 7Mate.
