Tennis legends meet on court for first time.
Roger Federer’s Switzerland beat Serena Williams’ USA as the two tennis greats met on court for the first time at the Hopman Cup in Perth, Australia.
Federer and Belinda Bencic beat Williams and Frances Tiafoe 4-2 4-3 (5-3) in a mixed-doubles contest to secure a 2-1 win in the round-robin tie.
Federer and Williams, both 37, earlier won their respective singles matches.
“It was great fun. I really enjoyed playing against Serena. What an honour,” said Federer.
“I was nervous returning because people talk about her serve so much. I know why they say it now, she has a wonderful serve.
“She’s a great champion, you see how focused she is and I love that about her.”
Federer and Williams have won a combined 43 Grand Slam singles titles, and have spent a combined 621 weeks at world number one.
