Watch Serbia vs Spain, Nadal vs Djokovic ATP Cup final
Here's how to watch it live or stream online.
Serbia was the first country to make it through to the final after overcoming Russia. Novak Djokovic prevailed in a tight three-set battle with Daniil Medvedev to set the Serbians on their way before Dusan Lajovic withstood a strong serving display from Karen Khachanov to guarantee they would reach the final.
Spain then ended the run of hosts Australia in the second semi-final. Nick Kyrgios was oddly out of sorts as he was cast aside surprisingly easily by Roberto Bautista Agut. That left 20-year-old Alex de Minaur needing to overcome world No.1 Rafael Nadal to keep the tie alive.
De Minaur took the fight right to the Spaniard, claiming the first set before bowing out 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 as the places in this year's final were completed.
Channel 9 is the host broadcaster of this brand new event and this is how you can tune in for the decider.

Who will win the ATP Cup final of Serbia vs Spain?
While organisers would have hoped for Australia to make the final, they couldn't be unhappy about the blockbuster showdown that awaits on Sunday night.
Lajovic and Bautista Agut clash in the opening singles rubber. But that is a mere hors d'oeuvre for the match everyone will be waiting for, Nadal vs Djokovic. Leading into a season when many expected the young stars on the circuit to finally catch up to the veterans, it is the same old script to start 2020.
Hopefully the tie will still be alive heading into the doubles when Djokovic and Nadal are scheduled to back up. We're giving a slight edge to the Djoker and his team.
