Tournament[edit]

The 2012 Hyundai Hopman Cup was an invitational tennis tournament and is also known as the Official Mixed Teams Championships of the ITF. The 2012 cup had prize money of $1 million and followed the traditional round robin format, the leading teams after three round robin matches qualified for the final. All matches were best of three sets with the exception of the doubles match where a match tie break, first to ten points, was played if the match was tied at one set all. All ties were played in this format; women's singles, men's singles and finally mixed doubles. In the event of a tie in the final group standings the following will be used to separate the nations;

  • The highest total of matches won
  • Best percentage of sets won and lost
  • Best percentage of games won and lost
  • Head to Head performances
  • Toss of a coin[4]
