The Hopman Cup XXVII was the 27th edition of the Hopman Cup tournament between nations in men's and women's tennis. The tournament commenced on 4 January 2015 at the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia.[1]

Eight teams competed for the title, with two round robin groups of four, from which the top team of each group advanced to the Final.

France were the 2014 champions. In that tournament's final the French team of Alizé Cornet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga defeated Poland 2-1, but they failed to defend their title. Agnieszka Radwa?ska recorded an impressive win over Serena Williams in the final, ultimately carrying the Polish team to their first Hopman Cup title with a 2-1 victory over the United States.[2][3]
