Federer remains unbeaten at Hopman Cup

Federer remains unbeaten at Hopman Cup

"I'm thrilled and happy". "For the crowd to see that and for people at home to see that; that was big for me". "It was a tough match for me, and even tougher to close it".

Also Friday, Angelique Kerber won her singles match and contributed heavily in the deciding mixed doubles victory that gave Germany a 2-1 win over Australia and a spot in the final against Switzerland.

Bouchard is scheduled to compete at next week's Hobart International ahead of the Australian Open, which begins January 15.

Despite losing the final, Kerber congratulated both her opponents and team mate Zverev. I have made some adjustments to my game, I'm trying to hit through the backhand a bit more, maybe I have a bit more pop on the serve and naturally the whole rally has changed because you have different options.

Zverev was simply unable to play Federer at all in the second set and the Swiss great crushed him 6-0.

Herself on the comeback trail after injury issues, the former world number seven maintained her flawless record in singles to win 7-6 (8/6), 6-4 and was delighted to have put the Swiss into the final.

Northeast BC unemployment drops more than half to 4.6% in 2017
Saskatchewan had its first noticeable employment increase in 10 months as almost 5,000 jobs were added to the economy in December. Canada's unemployment rate plunged to the lowest in more than 40 years as the economy continues to add jobs at record levels.

He was probably in a generous mood after he produced some of his best tennis to come from a set down to upset world No.4 Zverev in their singles clash.

Gavrilova, ranked No 25, started strongly, earning four break points in the opening game of the match, but failed to convert any of them. With the Australian Open just over a week away, Bouchard said she didn't think the injury was serious.

The World No 209 Kokkinakis was in the match from the outset, but couldn't earn a break of serve in the opening set. 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.

World No.74 Bencic, who missed five months past year after wrist surgery, has never dropped a set against Kerber and leads the German 3-0 head-to-head.

Germany has won the Hopman Cup twice, but not since Boris Becker and Anke Huber teamed up in 1995.
