PERTH, Australia —

South Africa beat France 2-1 at the Hopman Cup on Friday when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had to retire in the deciding mixed doubles with a groin injury.

Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa beat France's Mathilde Johansson 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 before Tsonga defeated Kevin Anderson 7-6 (4), 7-6 (3) in a match during which the French player appeared to slightly injure his groin while stretching for shot during a rally.

Scheepers and Anderson had won the first set of the mixed doubles 6-3 and were trailing 2-1 on serve in the second when Tsonga indicated that he could not continue.

Serbia was to play Germany later Friday, where a win by the Serbian team of Novak Djokovic and Ana Ivanovic would advance them to Saturday's final against Spain.
