2018 has started off on a bouncing note for our teams in Queensland and WA. As guests of Emirates at Brisbane International Tennis, Brisbane and Hopman Cup, Perth, they were the privileged to witness Roger Federer, John Millman and Peter Polansky, in action.

The Hopman Cup 2018 was the 30th edition of the Hopman Cup tournament between nations in men’s and women’s tennis. It took place at the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia.

France were the defending champions, however they did not return to defend their title. This marked the first edition without France competing since 2010.

On 4 January 2018, a record crowd of 14,029 attended for the Hopman Cup match between United States and Switzerland. This was also the highest attendance for a tennis match in Western Australian history.

Our teams had a great time witnessing great sport and experiencing impeccable hospitality.
