The defending champions were Australia. Roger Federer, 2001 champion, made his first appearance since 2002, alongside his partner Belinda Bencic.[2]

For this edition, the Fast4 rule was implemented in Mixed Doubles matches. This marked the first time that an official tournament applied this rule since its inception in 2015.[3]

In the final France defeated the USA to win its second title.[4][5]
