Team Serbia is seen as one of the top teams, if not the top team, at the 2013 Hopman Cup. But somebody forgot to tell Australia’s Bernard Tomic, who came out and shocked world #1 Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-4 to give the Aussies a quick and surprising 1-0 lead. However, on this day it would be former women’s #1 Ana Ivanovic who would pick up Serbia with a strong serving (9 aces) performance against Ashleigh Barty, winning 6-2 6-3. With the rubber tied at 1-1, the mixed doubles decided the affair with Ana and Nole combining to take down the team from Down Under is a hotly contested mixed doubles match, edging the Aussies 10-6 in a third set champions tie-break (basically instead of playing a full third set, they instead decide the third set by playing a tie break that goes to 10, instead of 7).
