Roger Federer chosen as the most popular Australian Sports Icon--congratulations-- no-one deserves this recognition more than yourself.
Lastly, we were fortunate enough to be in Adelaide last week and able to watch some tennis, none other than one of my all time favourites Martin Hingis. My goodness she has not lost any of her skills, excellent net play BUT her court anticipation as good as ever--daresay I say equal to RF !!Such a joy to watch her play again.
Kindest regards

Hello Roger
Wishing you all of the very best for your 1st match and the AO tournament.
No draw is easy--one match at a time as we are not able to change anything [the draw]--the way it is, and you have managed many in your long career.
Thank for speaking out in support of Lleyton Hewitt--I agree with everything that you said--he has not only had more that his fair share of injuries/surgeries BUT has continued to play tennis like a true "warrior'--I am very proud of him.

Good luck Roger. I believe in you and that you can do it and win AO 2013.
Work hard, play honest, play with sportmanship and play your very very best.
If the you that, the victory will definitely be yours.

Love and respect you yesterday, today, tomorrow and for eternity.

Go get your 5th AO and 18th GS.

I love you, your fan, Kemna
