Friday, January 5th:

  • Greece vs Germany: A Titans' clash awaits as Greece's dynamic duo of Maria Sakkari (world No. 6) and Stefanos Tsitsipas (world No. 4) lock horns with the experienced German stars Angelique Kerber (world No. 27) and Alexander Zverev (world No. 12). Singles glory hangs in the balance, followed by a mixed doubles match that promises fireworks.

The winners of these quarterfinal battles will not only bask in the roar of the Sydney crowd but also secure their path to the semifinals in Perth, where they'll face off against either Team Australia or Team Poland, who battled their way through in Perth. And let's not forget the ultimate prize – the United Cup final, to be fiercely contested on Sunday, January 7th, in Sydney!
