Lleyton Hewitt and Jarmila Wolfe won the dead mixed-doubles rubber for Australia in a match tiebreak.The pairing of Alexandr Dolgopolov and Elina Svitolina, who have both won all their singles matches this week, will play in Saturday's final.After Svitolina gave Ukraine the early advantage with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Wolfe, Dolgopolov came from a set down to beat Hewitt and put them into the final.Dolgopolov said his form was not as good as in his previous two singles wins, but he knew he needed to eke out a win over Hewitt.That dream was alive briefly when Hewitt, in his eighth and final appearance in Perth, took the first set against Dolgopolov.Dolgopolov then launched Ukraine into the final by taking the third set to complete a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 win.
