Prior to his now two wins alongside Bencic, he won back in 2001 with tennis legend Martina Hingis.

Australia got a consolatory victory in the doubles match, winning against the German duo 4-0, 4-3.

She will meet Karolína Plíšková of the Czech Republic, who triumphed against Ajla Tomljanović of Australia 6-1, 1-6, 6-1.

But Kerber levelled the tie with a 6-4 7-6 (8-6) win over Bencic in the women's singles rubber.

The semi-finals will take place tomorrow.

"We will remember for the Rest of our lives this week, especially at this last ball change", said Zverev, and known how much he and Kerber were eager to win the title this time.

Federer has beaten Frances Tiafoe, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Cameron Norrie, and Zverev in straight sets at the Hopman Cup, giving him an excellent preparation for his Australian Open title defence.

A record 110,364 people attended what is rumoured to be the final Hopman Cup over the past week.

Wimbledon champion Kerber won all three of her round-robin matches against Australia, Spain and France, emulated by Zverev to set up a showdown with the Swiss.

Zverev had a glimmer of hope in the first game of the second set, 0-30, and two deuces, but the Federer serving was just too good. We were one shot away. I have been writing about tennis for the last 4 years.

"I'm one of the top 10 favourites and so are many others", he said.

Zverev, who beat Federer in the semi-finals of the ATP Finals last November, added: "Angie shouldn't do much different because she won the singles match past year so I take the blame all on me".

Bencic couldn't secure the final for Switzerland, going down to Kerber 6-4 7-6 in a thrilling second set tie breaker.

Critical to the result was Kerber's ability to convert all four of her break points during the match, while Bencic was only successful on two of seven.

It was not until Kerber's third match point that a backhand victor secured the 6-4, 7-6 (8/6) win. I am a decent club player, but I have never reached those heights Interested in the nextgen.
