Fresh off winning the Halle Open, Roger Federer looks to be in sublime touch heading into Wimbledon this year. The Swiss master is playing some of the best tennis of his career, as he is on course to have what could possibly be his last great Wimbledon tournament. But the legendary tennis player is already planning for next season, as Roger Federer reveals his first tournament of 2018.
“I’m very happy to be coming back (to the Hopman Cup) because I had the best time on and off the court,” said the world number five in a statement issued by tournament organisers.
Federer has an incredible legion of fans, who support him through thick and thin. With Federer fast approaching the last phase of his career, fans would want to see him in action more often.
“The fans were absolutely amazing, there were I think about 6000 people at my first practice which I couldn’t believe, it was almost surreal walking into the stadium.”
“Off-court we had a tonne of activities. My family and I had the best time. It was just a great, relaxing start to the year,” he said.
“Plus I played some really good tennis and I can’t wait to play again in Perth.”
Bencic, who is also returning to Perth is excited about going back to one of his favourite courts in the world.
“The Hopman Cup was amazing for me earlier this year,” she said.
“Playing with Roger was obviously a dream come true and I learned so much from him during that week on and off court.”
