United Cup Draw 2023

The draw for the new United Cup has been released and, let me tell you, it does not disappoint.

The way the draw works is there are six groups with each group having three countries. Each city will host two groups and the winner of each group will go through to the Host City Finals with the winner of each Host City Finals advancing to the semi-finals in Sydney. Also, the losing host city finalist with the best record from the three matches will advance to the semi-finals as well.

There are many great matches to look out for but a personal favorite of mine is Rafael Nadal vs. Nick Kygrios in the Spain vs. Australia match-up.
