Federer was pinged by Francis Tiafoe in the mixed doubles match at the Hopman Cup. The Swiss playing with Belinda Bencic were 2-1 down in the second set when Roger went to cross for the intercept and you can see what happens next. He got hit on the ear. Ouch.
Luckily for Federer and Swiss fans he wasnt badly hurt. The Swiss rallied to win the second set breaker. The Swiss team are now 2 from 2 and face Greece in their last round robin match on 3rd January 2019.
