Hopman Cup: Roger Federer & Serena Williams win singles matches”

Federer and Swiss teammate Belinda Bencic beat Williams and Frances Tiafoe in a mixed-doubles match, winning the Fast4 format 4-2, 4-3 (5-3) in 46 minutes.

Serena Williams ensured her first ever on-court meeting with Roger Federer would have a competitive edge as she fought back on Tuesday to win her singles in the Hopman Cup.

And the 37-year-old is looking forward to the mixed doubles clash with the U.S., where he will face off against 23-time grand slam victor Serena Williams.

They'll meet in a mixed doubles match at the Hopman Cup.

Switzerland lead Group B at the tournament, followed by Greece and Great Britain, with the United States bringing up the rear.

Switzerland are the defending champions, Federer and Bencic having won the event in Perth in January 2018.

But there are other fights he's looking at and there are other fights Dillian's looking at. If it's 13 April at Wembley, you'd need it on sale end of January.

Last year American tennis legend John McEnroe scoffed that if Serena Williams' record were to be measured by the standards of male players, she would rank a very low 700th in the men's circuit.

Earlier in the night, Williams raced out to a 3-0 lead in the opening set before losing six of the next seven games. "You know, I've been training in the off-season to be ready for Roger".

'Great champion, you can see how determined and focused she is - I love that about her'. The two greats will be opponents for the first time in the mixed doubles.

The much-hyped contest lived up to the billing immediately with Federer nearly running down Williams' smash into the open court.

"I was nervous returning (her serve) because you just don't know", Federer said of Williams.

Federer won seven games in succession and eight of the last nine as Tiafoe dropped away.

Although it has not been possible to confirm that this model will be the one that arrives at the MWC. However, all of them have contributed to painting a clearer picture of the Samsung Galaxy S10 .

For the first time in their decades-long tennis careers, Serena Williams and Roger Federer will play each other on New Year's Day.

Williams also said the coming match was "like a dream come true".

Williams will need to beat world No.41 Maria Sakkari in the women's singles rubber to keep the tie alive.

From there Federer cruised to victory. Federer has five US Open championships. "I do enjoy playing here in Perth".

Federer faced three break points in his first service game, but was near ideal from that point on as he wrapped up the contest in 57 minutes at RAC Arena on Sunday night.

"It's been a great start to the season for me, I found a way and I have to be happy right now", Federer said.
