Twenty-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer became the most successful player in Hopman Cup history after leading Switzerland to a 2-1 win over Germany on Saturday, Sky Sports report.

The 37-year-old once again teamed up with Belinda Bencic and found themselves in a repeat of last year’s final against Germany in Perth.

Federer defeated youngster Alexander Zverev 6-4 6-2 to give the Swiss an early 1-0 lead, before Bencic lost 6-4 7-6 (8-6) against Angelique Kerber to level the tie.

The Swiss pair then defeated Kerber and Zverev in a tight mixed doubles clash 4-0 1-4 4-3 (5-4) to claim their fourth Hopman Cup title.

The event was tipped to be the final edition of the competition, with the Hopman Cup reportedly being replaced by an ATP tournament from next year.

Federer, who first won the Hopman Cup back in 2001 alongside Martina Hingis, has now claimed the title four times, more than any other player, and the veteran will be looking to make it Grand Slam number 21 later on in the month when he competes in the Australian Open.
