The Hopman Cup XXVII was the 27th edition of the Hopman Cup tournament between nations in men's and women's tennis. The tournament commenced on the 4th of January 2015 at the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia.[1]

Eight teams competed for the title, with two round robin groups of four, from which the top team of each group advanced to the Final.

France were the 2014 champions. In that tournament's final the French team of Alizé Cornet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga defeated the Polish team of Agnieszka Radwańska and Grzegorz Panfil 2–1. They failed to defend their title, while Poland won their first Hopman Cup title by defeating the United States 2–1.[2][3]
