Roger Federer has announced he will represent Switzerland at the Mastercard Hopman Cup in January.
The 18-time Grand Slam champion will team up alongside Belinda Bencic for a second consecutive year in the eight-nation ITF mixed competition, played in the Australian city of Perth.
“I’ll be there to support the Hopman Cup on their 30th birthday and make sure it is going to be memorable,” Federer said.

A champion at the event alongside Martina Hingis in 2001, Federer returned after a 15-year absence earlier this year just weeks before winning his record-breaking 18th Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open.
