The 2014 Brisbane International was a joint 2014 ATP World Tour and 2014 WTA Tour tennis tournament, played on outdoor hard courts in Brisbane, Queensland. It was the sixth edition of the tournament and took place at the Queensland Tennis Centre in Tennyson. It will be held from 29 December 2013 to 5 January 2014. It is part of the Australian Open Series in preparation for the first Grand Slam of the year.

In a major coup for the tournament, it was announced on 24 July 2013 that former world no. 1 and 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer had committed to the event for the first time, thus breaking from his tradition of beginning the season in the Middle East.[1] This announcement was dubbed "the biggest announcement in the history of the Brisbane International".[2][3] Defending champion Serena Williams, two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, 2013 Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki, former world number ones Caroline Wozniacki and Jelena Janković and former ATP world no. 1 Lleyton Hewitt were also big drawcards for the event.[4][5]
