Serena Williams and Roger Federer attended a New Years Eve Gala dinner on Monday, the day before their Hopman Cup match in Perth.
Serena Williams and Roger Federer have athletic lives of almost parallel excellence, which will finally intersect on a tennis court Tuesday.
Federer has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles. Williams has won 23. Federer has 99 career titles. Williams has 72. Federer has five US Open championships. Williams has six.
But Tuesday will mark the first time either of the superstars has ever taken the court in competition with the other.
