Zverev, ranked fourth and playing in his fourth successive Hopman Cup, then secured the tie for the Germans with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Matthew Ebden.
The final was similar to the one meet a year earlier: Zverev lost to Federer, but this time not in three sets, but clearly in 4:6, 2:6.
Greece also won the mixed doubles, 4-3 (4), 2-4, 4-3 (3), in the Fast4 format. But in the end, the experience and athleticism of Kerber proved just enough to seal the match, 7-6 (6), with a final victor.
Federer's three Hopman Cup titles is more than any other player.
And what a point it was, with Alexander Zverev and Angelique Kerber trying relentlessly to pass Federer and Belinda Bencic at the net, but ultimately failing when Zverev went for a backhand too far out of his reach.
As if beating Federer is not flattering enough for Tsitsipas, he now sits 15th in the world tennis rankings, sitting 12 spots behind Federer, and wins like this against one of the best players of all time will do wonders for the 20-year-old's quest to being ranked the number one player in the world. Zverev said as those inside the stadium roared with laughter.
"Especially you [Roger]. You're thirty-whatever. Why?" I mean, you're 30-whatever. Why?

"What the hell are you laughing at", joked Zverev at one point, which prompted a mock, serious face from Fed.
Federer tried to shift the blame.
She clearly revelled in the company of her illustrious partner, revealing after the final that, "He talks a lot-he thinks everyone is a genius who can do all the things he says!"
Zverev added: "What a nice guy, huh?"
Antics aside, Federer was genuinely chuffed to have had more success in Perth and said the entire event was a success.
"There was very little unforced errors and it was really good quality tennis", Federer said.
Muguruza also went 3-0 up in the second set before Cornet broke back but eventually lost the match in straight sets.

"It's great fun. I'm happy, I'm proud to represent my country. It's been a super pleasure teaming with Belinda".
When he wasn't cracking wise, Zverev was gracious in defeat.
"We came so close - we were one shot away".
"That is why me and Angie decided after last year's match that we were going to come back to Perth. We can hopefully maybe one day be holding that trophy". I have been writing about tennis for the last 4 years.
