Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber and ATP Finals winner Alexander Zverev took Germany into the Hopman Cup final with victory over hosts Australia.

World number two Kerber beat Ashleigh Barty 6-4 6-4 to give the Germans an early lead in the best-of-three tie.

And their spot in Saturday’s final was secured when world number four Zverev beat Matt Ebden 6-4 6-3 in Perth.

Defending champions Switzerland, who are represented by Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic, are their opponents.

The Hopman Cup – tennis’ only mixed gender team competition – sees eight nations split into two groups of four for a round-robin format which features two singles and a mixed doubles match. The winners of each group contest the final.
