The Hyundai Hopman Cup
Hyundai Motor Company Australia has been a proud sponsor of the Hopman Cup tennis tournament since its inception in 1988. Ten years later, in 1998, Hyundai took the mantle of Title Sponsor, renaming the event the Hyundai Hopman Cup. In 2008, a further commitment of five years was undertaken making this partnership one of the longest Title Sponsorships in Australian sport.
Hopman Cup history
The Hopman Cup was named in honour of one of Australia’s greatest tennis players and coaches – Harry Hopman. For 21 years the Hopman Cup has been serving up the very best in international tennis.
The Hyundai Hopman Cup is an international team tennis tournament held each year in Perth, Australia. The unique competition sees mixed male and female teams play against each other representing their nations. No less than 18 world number one ranked players, including legends such as Boris Becker, Steffi Graf, Serena Williams and John McEnroe, and Australians greats such as Lleyton Hewitt, Alicia Molik, Samantha Stosur and Mark Phillipousous have thrilled the packed crowds at the Burswood Dome.
Rising stars such as Roger Federer, Monica Seles, Martina Hingis and Novak Djokovic have used the Hyundai Hopman Cup as a springboard to their future success.
