Australia out of the Hopman Cup after Barty and Ebden defeated

Packed crowds for my matches are not granted says Roger Federer

Roger Federer became the first three-time champion of the Cup of Chapman, and Switzerland for the fourth time won the exhibition tournament, second in wins only to team U.S., which has six titles.

Federer gave Switzerland a 1-0 lead in the tie with a 6-4 6-2 win over world No.4 Alexander Zverev on Saturday.

In the men's competition, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France beat Australia's Alex De Minaur 6-4, 7-6 to meet Daniil Medvedev in the semis, after the Russian defeated Canada's Milos Raonic 6-7, 6-3, 6-4.

The Swiss pair wrapped up the tournament decider in the mixed doubles 4-0 1-4 4-3 (5-4) in the most exciting final of the event's 31-year history.

On Thursday, the Greek Team was opposed to Team Switzerland in the Hopman Cup in Perth.

Federer, 37, first won the Hopman Cup back in 2001 when he teamed with Martina Hingis.

"I hope it (final) is going to be just as exciting as previous year, but just going the other way".

It was achieved in front of a crowd of 14,032, taking the overall attendance for the tournament to a record 110,364.

There was a sense of deja vu as Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic claimed a decisive mixed doubles victory over Germany in Perth.

For a second time Kerber was unable to serve out the match, as Bencic forced it to a tie-break. There is talk that the Cup might go away to make room for the new ATP Cup.

World number two Kerber was too good for the 15th-ranked Barty in the opening match, winning 6-4, 6-4.

Federer concluded with: "It's been so much fun playing with you [Belinda] the last three years, and I hope it's not the last time".

His cheeky reaction didn't go unnoticed by Zverev, who resumed his roast: "What the hell are you laughing at right now?"

"And that's why me and Angie decided after last year's final that we are definitely going to come back here to Perth".

"You have to win the last point and it's never easy because she is fighting until the last one". "It will be tough to swallow because I will remember this as our last ever match", he said.

The German's serve is big-and here he maintained a near constant speed of over 200kph-but the more nuanced and accurate serving of Federer ensured the Swiss dropped only two points on his serve in the entire first set.
