Player selectionEdit

On 13 December 2018, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were the first players to confirm their participation for Team Europe.[1] During the 2019 Madrid Open, Stan Wawrinka expressed interest in participating in the event with Federer, but he will instead play at the St. Petersburg Open in Russia.[2] On 14 June 2019, Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Fabio Fognini announced their participation for Team Europe.[3] On 3 July 2019, Kevin Anderson, John Isner, Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov were announced for Team World.[4] Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios were both confirmed for the event on 13 August.[5] As his final picks, Team World captain John McEnroe chose Jack Sock and Taylor Fritz, with Fritz replacing the injured Anderson.[6]

MatchesEdit

Each match win on day 1 is worth one point, on day 2 two points, and on day 3 three points. The first team to 13 points wins.[7] Since four matches are played each day, there is a total of 24 points available. However, since 12 of the total points are earned on day 3, neither team can win prior to the final day of play.
