Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth are expected to share hosting rights for the incoming 24-team World Team Cup.

When asked about the incident in a post-match press conference after his straight-sets victory against Stefanos Tsitsipas on Thursday, Federer said: "She gave it back to me and said she wasn't sure if she was actually allowed to keep it, and I said 'It is for you, ' so I gave it back again".

"It (leg) is so sore, we have been playing a lot this week - I felt a little bit of pain in my quad", she said.

They changed ends at 3-3, with their partners both watching intently from the side-lines, and Bencic saved two match points to change ends still all square, 6-6.
