Roger Federer arrived in Brisbane on 28 December 2013




Here are a couple of videos from the press conference following his arrival. In the first one he mentions Mirka and the news that they are expecting a new baby.








Good to see Roger looking so relaxed and happy and wish him every success in the start to the 2014 season. The conditions are described as humid and fast so should be good :)

Roger Federer : "The koala bear I was holding, Tinkerbell, was really nice and friendly. It's the first time I've held a koala bear so very exciting,"
 
"I can't wait for the tournament to start and get to experience the fans and look forward to hearing them.
 
"I've been to Australia many times but I've only been to Brisbane once and that was 20 years ago.
 
"I have a few memories of being on Rainbow beach, the Gold Coast and the Great Barrier Reef.
 
"I've played in so many cities around Australia but never here in Brisbane. It's exciting times for me as a tennis player."
 
"I've heard only great things coming out of Brisbane and Queensland, this is an amazing event and I know Pat Rafter well and he told me what a great event this is and the centre court is named after him which for me will be fun because I played against him and he is one of my favourite players when I was coming up on tour."

Roger Federer visits Kangaroo Point and gets up close and personal with Tinkerbell at the Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane.

Thanks Wendy and Sausan for the great pics and videos.  Roger doesn't look entirely comfortable with Tinkerbell does he.  And I don't blame him.  They have impressive claws!  He's looking very fit, and in some of the pics ridiculously young (like about 5 years old!).

 

I'm both extremely excited and rather nervous for Roger's first matches.  In other words - it's business as usual for me.

What really touched my heart was the way in which Roger was holding Tinkerbell, and the look on her face .... Awww .... it was the kangaroo encounter that would have made me more nervous, they can do some serious damage ... as you say Rita, the impressive claws would make one wary no matter how cuddly the animal looks.

No doubt the staff there knew their temperament, so would not be taking undue risks with our maestro.

I hope that Charlene and Myla had a private time away from the cameras with their Dad, I'm sure they would have loved seeing the koala :)

Yes, it will be rather telling and perhaps tense making to see how Roger is on court. I am quietly optimistic and confident for an encouraging start to 2014. With the time difference it may be a welcome distraction from lying awake at night listening to the wind roaring outside and rattling anything not nailed down, to watch a stream of Roger playing in sun drenched Brisbane!

It makes you appreciate just how much time and effort Roger puts in to media sessions when you watch these videos, the last one specially. He manages to look so relaxed and fresh despite facing the same questions over and over. Must become tiring though.

Here's a first set of highlights from Roger's doubles match:

I must admit, I am utterly impressed with those backhand returns. Looks like good times are coming back.
