The Hopman Cup XXX (also known as the 2018 Mastercard Hopman Cup for sponsorship reasons)[1] 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.[2]

On 4 January 2018, a record crowd of 14,029 attended for the Hopman Cup match between United States and Switzerland.[3] This was also the highest attendance for a tennis match in Western Australian history.

Switzerland defeated Germany in the final to win its third title.[4][5]
