Djokovic, who has won the last two Grand Slams to move to within six of Federer's record tally, missed the inaugural tournament past year due to an elbow injury.

"We've had some really close matches that haven't gone our way and I really wanted to put us back in there", Anderson said of the turnaround in Team World's fortunes after recording his first triumph over Djokovic in a decade.

"Even though we're the home team, I'm sure they will have a lot of fans cheering for them while they are playing together", Sock said.

The lack of experience in doubles again showed up as Federer and Djokovic failed to match up the doubles specialist Sock and his partner Anderson.

The Serbian saw a forehand hit Federer, who was standing at the net, in the back during their clash against Kevin Anderson and Jack Sock.

6-7 6-3 10-6. Their win gave World their first point of the tournament against the Europeans.

It then left Sock and Kyrgios to combine to win the doubles match finale, beating Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin of Belgium 6-3 6-4.
