Britain beats Greece, Australia defeats France at Hopman Cup

Cameron Norrie and Katie Boulter beat Stefanos Tsitsipas and Maria Sakkari 4-3, 3-4, 4-3 to give Britain a 2-1 win over Greece in the opening match of the Hopman Cup

Norrie upset No. 15-ranked Tsitsipas 7-6 (8), 6-4 to give Britain the lead before Sakkari beat Boulter 6-0, 4-6, 6-2 in women's singles to level the tie.

Pouille and Cornet prevailed in the mixed doubles 4-3, 4-2 to make the final score 2-1 to Australia.

"A bit of polish is needed but it was nice to come out and play a pretty clean match," Barty said. "I love being back home ... playing in Australia."

The most anticipated match of the eight-team tournament is scheduled Tuesday when Switzerland's Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic play Americans Serena Williams and Frances Tiafoe. It means Federer and Williams will play against each other in the mixed doubles portion of that match.
