Tennis greats Roger Federer and Serena Williams will meet on court for the first time when Switzerland face the USA in the Hopman Cup on Tuesday. They will play in men’s and women’s singles rubbers before meeting in the mixed doubles alongside partners Belinda Bencic and Frances Tiafoe.
“It is very exciting for both of us and I hope a lot of tennis fans tune in and watch it,” said Federer.
Williams said it was “like a dream come true”. She added: “I have been looking forward to it. This is so cool.”
