It was recently announced that the Hopeman Cup would be moved into the ITF’s control. Moments after this happened, Founder Paul McNamee was sacked as tournament director.

A boardroom battle at an International Tennis Federation meeting in Vienna resulted in former Wimbledon doubles champion McNamee out of the unique tournament he founded almost a quarter of a century ago along with others including Aussie Wimbledon winner Pat Cash.

The ITF will take over the lucrative event before passing management rights onto its junior partner Tennis Australia.
