Roger Federer has started his Mastercard Hopman Cup campaign in perfect fashion, brushing past world No.91 Cameron Norrie 6-1 6-1 in 57 minutes.

Federer faced three break points in his first service game, but was near perfect from that point on as he wrapped up the contest in 57 minutes.

Norrie rarely challenged the 20-time Grand Slam winner, with Federer’s win giving Switzerland a 1-0 lead over Great Britain ahead of Belinda Bencic’s clash with Katie Boulter.

Federer has won the past two Australian Opens, and his early-season form suggests he will again be the one to beat in the first major of 2019.

“It was very good. I came out of the blocks quick. I wasn’t missing any rhythm,” Federer said after his win over world No.91 Norrie

“I’m happy in all aspects of my game that things were working – foot work, offensive play, serve, return – it was all there. It was a great match for me.”

Belinda Bencic staved off a second-set challenge from a determined Katie Boulter to secure Switzerland’s win over Great Britain at Mastercard Hopman Cup 2019.

The 21-year-old prevailed 6-2 7-6(0) over the Brit in an hour and 43 minutes, her gritty win providing a positive sign that the Swiss team’s title defence is on track.
