Roger Federer beats Cameron Norrie at Hopman Cup

This year's tournament is expected to be Perth's final Hopman Cup and tomorrow's group tie is an early sellout on the back of the prospect of seeing two of the all-time greats, with 43 Grand Slam singles titles between them, on the same court.

Serena Williams scored her second singles win at this year's Hopman Cup, beating Belinda Bencic 4-6 6-4 6-3 in an hour and 40 minutes to level the overall score and set all eyes on the much expected mixed doubles clash.

On Tuesday, the United States will take on Switzerland, with Williams and Tiafoe meeting Roger Federer and partner Belinda Bencic in mixed doubles as part of the day's slate.

Williams, who seemed to be troubled by her right shoulder during the match but said it wasn't a concern, was disappointed her doubles experience didn't give the Americans the edge. "I hope tennis fans tune in and watch it because it's going to be one time and probably never again in this type of competition", Federer told the press, adding that the two "can relate to each other more so now, being parents".

"I admire everything she's done on and off the court, we are both fierce competitors and we always want to win", he said, according to Agence France-Presse.

"I was so excited and literally it was the match of my career", she said.

"I'll stay on the bike and keep the engine on", Federer said.

Serena Williams has sent tennis fans into a frenzy with a photo of her and daughter Olympia at the Hopman Cup.

"I guess what you're seeking here is confirmation to see is everything there that you thought there was, or is there any fixing still to be done in the coming weeks".

Federer and Bencic required a tie-break to close out a very evenly-contested second set, losing three points in the breaker to seal victory. His serve is super underestimated, he has a killer serve.

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

Putting her amazingly toned figure on full display, Serena looked sensational in the red skater-style dress with a sweetheart neckline.

The Swiss team is the defending champions having won the previous event in Perth last January.
