Roger Federer’s Best Hopman Cup Points 2019

Plus 2018 Comment Leaderboard Winners Announced

If you enjoyed the Hopman Cup, or missed it altogether, then his video is for you. It's a neatly put together compilation of Federer's best Hopman Cup points in his four singles and mixed doubles matches over the course of the week.

Some classic points, big forehands, crisp volleys and that crazy get in the Fast4 vs Germany. Enjoy!

Unfortunately the video was removed.

2018 Comment Leaderboard Winners

Comment Winners

The 2018 comment leaderboard was a close run thing but the top three on 31st December were:

  • Emerson
  • Vik
  • Alex


My initial plan was to give away Amazon Streaming for the Grand Slams in 2019 but then I realised after the US Open that's only available for UK residents on so it's not going to work ๐Ÿ™ .

Both Anna and Alex deferred their prizes from last year based on this so I effectively owe Alex 2 prizes for 2017 and 2018 and Anna's 2017 prize.

So instead of Amazon for prizes, I'm giving you two choices:

  • 1 Year of Eurosport Player
  • 3 Months of Tennis TV

Third Option 

Removed due to factual error.

Obviously depends on access in your location and whether you already have it etc. But drop me an email or leave a comment so we can try work it out and apologies it got a bit more complicated than I had planned.


Huge fan of Roger Federer. I watch all his matches from Grand Slam level right down to ATP 250. When I'm not watching or writing about tennis I play regularly myself and have a keen interest in tactics, equipment and technicalties of the sport.

  1. So close…
    Congrats to the winners! ???

    Watching Hopman Cup highlights, Roger’s precision on his shots is on a league of it’s own. Astounding.
    Good to see him having his groove back.
    Let’s hope for another strong performance on AO. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yes itโ€™s an amateur blog & this competition the glory of the win is enough surely ?. Jonathan does soo much for no return he shldnt have to give us anything $$ wise! Winning is prestige enough well said & congrats VIK!

  2. Vik, if you are feeling that guilty about the prize, I’ll ease your mind and take it.

    Well, Jonathan, you are outdoing yourself. Another post so soon and great prizes. The competition is getting fierce.

    Great highlight reel. Fed showing the world the extent of his on court intelligence. He is like a cobra at the net, knowing when to strike. And, I love the way he plays an amazing point and then quickly turns to walk back to the baseline with the opponent wondering what the hell happened.

    Lots of black in the AO Nike and Adidas uniforms?

    1. Ehh, not sure about that Sue. I think that if Jon allows, I will choose someone to replace me. And perhaps, may I be direct and clear, it would be someone that’s up on the rankings. Perhaps Nambi.

  3. Thanks a lot, Jonathan.
    This afternoon I watched a documentary about Fred Astaire.ย 
    Watching your video of the Hopman cup, I suggest a new nickname for Fed when he plays like this : F(r)ed(Astair)erer !

    1. I like how he never let his life get portrayed on film. A clause in his will: “It is there because I have no particular desire to have my life misinterpreted, which it would be”

      If he was around today he’d likely have been a victim of the metoo movement for brushing past some ten a penny ho at a Christmas party in 1976. But she only had the guts to talk about it 40 years later ๐Ÿ˜†

  4. Thank you for the coverage Jonathan and sharing the video. Great way to start an early Monday morning in Japan. Fed looks splendid and it also looks like he thoroughly enjoyed it. He is an awesome competitor of course but this week also shows that he loves tennis.

  5. Thanks for sharing this great video! And congrats to the leaderboard winners, such fantastic prizes that are so suited for tennis watchers! I am a not a very quick or regular commenter (I usually get very superstitious during tournaments and don’t–can’t–comment till the end) but I do so enjoy this blog and the community.

    1. The good and the bad shaped his career and life. Worse than watching a tear jerk movie.
      Hey, who knows who the woman is that is with Mirka? Her mother?

      1. Nice. Thanks Sue for this link, tells about emotions from heart. Weeping from happiness and mourn melts down he says. Necessary sometimes in a true life IMO. Happy tears in AO 2017 – wonderful to celebrate his comeback there.
