Roger Federer will start next year to defend his title in the Hopman Cup, the unofficial world CHAMPIONSHIPS for mixed teams. The Swiss tennis legend is in Perth again as a duo with Belinda Bencic.
“I look forward with Belinda Bencic my title in the Hopman Cup to defend. The Perth Arena is a great place for the new year to start and of course it’s also the perfect preparation for the Australian Open. Over the past few years, it went very well,” says the twintigvoudige grandslamkampioen Tuesday on the website of the tournament.
In the edition 2018 knocked Federer and Bencic in the final the Germans Alexander Zverev and Angelique Kerber. Also they will be there again.
The other six duos, it remains to be seen. This year it was Belgium, David Goffin, and Elise Mertens also represented in Perth. They were second in the group of Germany. The Hopman Cup 2019 will be played from 29 december to 5 January.
