Roger Federer has defeated Serena Williams in a historic tennis match

Federer described the experience as an "honour".

Roger Federer has defeated Serena Williams in the Hopman Cup, as part of a once-off "exhibition" style game.

Federer and Belinda Bencic beat Williams and Frances Tiafoe 4-2 4-3 (5-3) in a mixed-doubles contest to secure a 2-1 win in the tie.

Federer and Williams, holders of a combined 43 singles Grand Slam crowns, won their singles matches in the tournament, which set up the doubles clash, and both players left the court seemingly very pleased with the experience.

They even got a selife afterwards, which undoubtedly go down in history.

Federer spoke about how much he enjoyed the experience, saying: "It was great fun. What a pleasure. What an honour. Thank you for making it possible.

"I was nervous returning. People talk about her serve so much and I see why it is such a wonderful serve because you just can't read it."

Williams also spoke about the match, saying it was a "great experience" and one she hoped would not end as quickly as it did.
