The ranking is based on the FedEx ATP Ranking of the highest ranked player from each country, and the tournament will include 14 of the top 15 in the world. A full of the twelve countries that have qualified and the 48 players currently committed to the tournament can be found at the bottom of the page.
In Roger Federer's absence, Canada took the place of Switzerland, while Kei Nishikori used his protected ranking of No. 10 to earn Japan a spot in the 2021 ATP Cup.
Serbia could be considered the favorite to win in 2021. Novak Djokovic won all of his matches in 2020, including a couple of difficult doubles victories, leading Serbia's path to the title.
Spain and Russia are the teams most likely to lift the trophy this year. Spain, last year's runner-up, has a team made up of three of the top 15 players and Marcel Granollers, 11th in doubles. Both Rafael Nadal and Pablo Carreño Busta could comfortably pair up with Granollers in doubles.
Russia lacks doubles prowess, they surely make up for it with singles dominance. The formidable pairing of Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev, world number 4 and 8 respectively, will be difficult for any team.
For the Germans, both Alexander Zverev and Jan-Lennard Struff have the potential to beat players above them in the rankings, while Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies defended their doubles title at the 2020 French Open.
With no players in the top 20, the Australians will look to make use of their home advantage. Last year, De Miñaur and John Millman were cheered on by the crowd and won crucial matches on Australia's path to the semi-finals.
