Serena Williams Ensures Meeting With Federer Will Have An Edge

Serena Williams ensured her first ever on-court meeting with Roger Federer would have a competitive edge as she fought back on Tuesday (Jan 1) to win her singles in the Hopman Cup.

Williams dropped the first set but recovered to beat Federer's Swiss team-mate Belinda Bencic 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

That tied the scores in the mixed team event at 1-1 with just the doubles to come.

The match will be the first time the two 37-year-olds, who have 43 Grand Slam singles titles between them, face each other.
