The Southern Ozaki Junior Cup, formerly the Junior Davis/Fed Cup, was created to give juniors the opportunity to experience the thrill and camaraderie of tennis as a team coed sport. The name "Ozaki" was added to the title in 2019 to commemorate the recently retired Bill Ozaki, who served as the USTA Southern Director of Player Development & Programs for nearly 30 years.
