Roger visited Rottnest Island on his first full day in Perth for Mastercard Hopman Cup 2018.


“I love it here” said the 19-time Grand Slam champion, who is representing Switzerland in Perth alongside Belinda Bencic for the second consecutive year. “It’s the perfect place to begin the Australian summer of tennis.”


The highlight of his afternoon was undoubtedly the selfie he snapped with the quokka, Rottnest Island’s famous native marsupial. “I thought it was going to be like a bigger mouse but it’s more like a smaller kangaroo.” said Roger. “But it’s very cute.”


Roger will begin his Hopman Cup campaign on December 30, when Switzerland plays Japan.
