Spain beat Britain to win third Hopman Cup title

PERTH (Reuters) - Tommy Robredo upended world number four Andy Murray to help Spain rally for a 2-1 victory over Britain in the Hopman Cup final on Saturday.

Earlier, 15-year-old Laura Robson had stunned world number 26 Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez 6-1 7-6 to give Britain a surprise lead before Robredo responded for Spain with a 1-6 6-4 6-3 upset of Murray.

The Spaniards then saved three set points in the opening set of the deciding mixed doubles as they clinched a dramatic 7-6 7-5 victory to win the event for the third time.
