    Hooroo Brisbane; G'day Perth.


    It's not all about titles these days, Roger also wants to enjoy himself.

    First time Fed's played in Perth for 15 years apparently. Might be an opportunity for you to see the great one @Bert!

    Your post prompted me to look back at Fed's Hopman Cup career @masterclass and I see he won the tournament with Martina Hingis back in 2001 before playing his last one back in 2002.

    I saw him playing a few times in Paris when I was there in France but I won't miss this opportunity... They usually manage to have one or two big names, especially since they play in the "Perth Arena" with the similar roof as Australian Open, but I would be curious to know how much they pay to have him :)

    Looks a pretty hi-tech venue @Bert.

    Is it pretty new? I don't remember it being there when I visited Perth in 2009?
