Federer arrived in Melbourne over the weekend ahead of the Australian Open, which gets underway next week.
“I’m super happy to be back in Melbourne,” Federer said.
“I wanted to arrive very early, for the children but also for the preparation. I love being here of course.
“We wait for that nice first hit on Rod Laver Arena. I have been feeling good, practising well everything is great and I can’t wait for it to start and to find out what the draw is later in the week.”
