Perth:

Wimbledon semi-finalist Marat Safin will team with his sister Dinara Safina to represent Russia at January's Hopman Cup, organisers said on Monday.

It will be the first time the former world number one, now ranked 40, has competed with his ninth-ranked sister at the mixed teams event.

Safin, a former US and Australian Open champion, returned to form at Wimbledon earlier this month, where he had a career best semi-final appearance and went out in straight sets to Roger Federer.

The Russian siblings will join Australia's Lleyton Hewitt and Casey Dellacqua at the January 3-9 Hopman Cup, with other teams still to be announced.
