Roger Federer hits the beach in Perth before Hopman Cup

Roger Federer loved the off-court outings on his return to Mastercard Hopman Cup in 2017; but if there one was sight the Swiss star didn’t quite manage it was of the famous quokka, despite a visit to the iconic Rottnest Island last year.

So Federer made it a priority to acquaint himself with the local wildlife on his return to Rottnest this time around. Arriving by helicopter and greeted by fans and officials – including West Australian premier Mark McGowan – the highlight of Federer’s afternoon was undoubtedly the selfie he snapped with the famous marsupial.

“I thought it was going to be like a bigger mouse but it’s more like a smaller kangaroo.” said Federer. “But it’s very cute.”

Later, Premier McGowan presented Federer with a toy quokka, appropriately named “Roger”, to pass on to his young family.

Federer also talked to media abroad luxury yacht Anya and enjoyed some local cuisine in a picture perfect afternoon.

SO jealous!
