The Hopman Cup continued today at the Perth Stadium in Perth and the fans witnessed their favourite stars in action on the court.

Germany and Switzerland both achieved comprehensive 3-0 victories over Spain and Great Britain respectively.

Switzerland's Belinda Bencic started off on a positive note, winning her match against Katie Boulter in straight sets.

Shortly after that, Roger Federer began his 2019 campaign with a thrashing of Great Britain's Cameron Norrie. The Swiss Maestro dispatched Norrie 6-1, 6-1 in just 57 minutes. He looked extremely comfortable playing his shots and was moving around extremely well.

Overall, he broke Norrie's serve 5 times over the course of the match. Federer had a slow start in the first game as he saved 3 break points. However, there was no looking back for him from there.

The mixed doubles combination of Federer and Bencic won their match in straight sets as well.

Meanwhile, both Angelique Kerber and Alexander Zverev had to work hard for their victories, winning their respective matches against Garbine Muguruza and David Ferrer in three sets. However, they found their mixed doubles encounter much easier, winning the match in straight sets.

Both Germany and Switzerland are now on top of their respective groups.
