Federer beats Zverev in Hopman Cup final

Dapper The tennis ace was in Australia for New Years attending the New Years Eve Players Ball at Crown Perth

"You got to play high quality against him or else you are going to get dusted, and it's going to be pretty embarrassing out there", he said.

"I was young, up and coming and didn't have any idea that my career would go so well", Federer, now second in the men's world rankings, said.

Federer managed to mention he's picked up 95 career titles since last winning the Hopman Cup and at one point declared himself better at the net than his tennis rivals when discussing baseline tactics.

Federer hadn't dropped a set all tournament and had looked in vintage form, until he came up against a fired-up Zverev.

Federer completed a flawless week in Perth with his fourth singles win from four matches, overcoming world No.4 Zverev 6-7 (7-4) 6-0 6-2 at a sold-out Perth Arena. "But I was able to take advantage of it and put Switzerland ahead most importantly now".

Federer's frustration was obvious as the set slipped away, dropping his racquet after missing an easy volley and then launching a ball towards the roof.

Federer fought back from a set down to beat Zverev 6-7 (4), 6-0, 6-2 and give the Swiss a 1-0 lead.

"I think it's maybe a little strained or a little pulled or something", Bouchard said.

Germany needed to win the mixed doubles to qualify for the final, and knock out Belgium.

Lesser players may have crumbled after the disappointment, but Kokkinakis was imperious early in the tiebreak and earned another three set points at 6-3 before finally forcing a decider at the eighth opportunity.

Switzerland cruised over the Americans and went undefeated during the pool stage.

The German pairing of Zverev and Angelique Kerber were aiming to join some of their nation's most famous players in etching their own names into the Hopman Cup record books.

The country's last victory in the Australian tournament came in 2002, when a 20-year-old Federer teamed up with Martina Hingis to lift the title.

Federer also played mixed doubles with his wife-to-be Mirka at the event in 2002, the only time the pair combined on court.

"I have the best of all worlds, it's great".
