Selden was a part of the regular rotation in Memphis for most of the season, but his workload had fallen off over the past month. A career eight points per game along with essentially three rebounds and almost two assists per game.

The unswerving focus was etched on Federer's face: He wanted to throw down a marker against the young star at the start of a new season after that London victory, but Zverev took a page out of his idol's book with repeated early strikes.

The Swiss team defeated Germany's Zverev and Kerber for the second year in a row.

"It's great fun. I'm happy, I'm proud to represent my country".
