Sascha secures Germany’s repeat final
Jan 04, 2019

Germany will meet Switzerland in a rematch of the Mastercard Hopman Cup 2019 final, after Angelique Kerber and Alexander Zverev claimed straight-sets wins over Ash Barty and Matt Ebden.

It ensured a final round-robin win over Australia – the German’s third in Perth this week.

The stakes couldn’t have been higher for the Group A tie, with the winner securing a spot in the final against Switzerland and the loser sent packing.

But the Germans gained an early lead when world No.2 was a 6-4 6-4 winner over Barty.

And Germany’s spot in the final was secured when Alexander Zverev beat Ebden 6-4 6-3 in 76 minutes.
