  1. He’s so outta breath! And he appears a bit thick around the middle and hips.
    Lucas Pouille 😎 watch out for him! he’s going to be hot in 2017. He’s super fit. That Frenchie does not let it slip — and he’s young!
    LOL…Paunchy Fed trying to talk so much — huffing, puffing, growling…other animal sound effects. He needs more cardio…and oxygen. Gilles Simon, Kei Nishikori and David Goffin will run circles around him.

    Show more Pouille, I say! Pouille will play Brisbane. Oh ho…he’s playing Hopman Cup with Belinda Bencic…Fed is.

    Hahaha points for hitting the Pouille and vice versa practicing at net. Extra points for hitting practice partner in the head – machevellian tendencies exposed…

    I don’t know about Fed. Maybe he’s better when not trying to comment on himself and on camera. He needs more cardio fitness — that’s my assessment! hahaha Go Fed, Go Lucas..

    Anyone doubting Roger Federer’s enthusiasm for coming back to tennis aged 35 can sleep easy based on that session. Like a kid at Christmas

  3. Let’s see how ol’ lardass (my pick to win Hopman) looks in his next practice. Man does he obviously miss the limelight….

    RT @hopmancup: NEWS: @rogerfederer is opening up his first #HopmanCup practice to the public tomorrow and you’re invited!

    Details… https://t.co/H51DwT2Ehi

    • Roger practised under the watchful eye of 6000 fans plus thousands live on the internet.

      The largest crowd to ever watch a practice in any sport in history. Iverson would be proud. And Roger did it for free.

  4. So much for being out of shape. First match back are you kidding me?

    RT @hopmancup: Rust? What rust.

    A sharp @rogerfederer lights up Perth Arena with a 6-3 6-4 win over Dan Evans. #TeamSwiss are 1-0 to the good #HopmanCup

  5. RT @scambers73: From a journalistic point of view, another reason it’s good to have Federer back is because it’s nice speaking to intelligent adults….

    RT @scambers73: Obviously plenty of intelligent players out there but Federer is always on point on the big issues and is happy discussing anything

  6. RT @darren_cahill: Gotta feel nice for Roger that get that match under his belt. Looked sharp & healthy. A bonus to win easily. Great start to 2017 for him.

  7. “I’d like to live it again. I’m a little bit sad it’s over, because it was so nice out there,” Federer said of his return. “I was actually quite emotional. When I walked down, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is better than I thought it would be.'”

    The 35-year-old Federer said it was the kind of feeling he missed the most while he was sidelined.

    “I thought for a first match it was great, because my expectations were obviously quite low,” he said.

    “After all these years, it would be nice to win another one. Of course I’d even take two or three or four,” he said. “We’ll see. It’s tough at the top. A lot of good guys out there right now. I’ll give it a chance and see what happens.”

    Federer said he spent plenty of time on conditioning during his break from the game.

    “I don’t have any pain,” he said. “It’s been nice that I was able to get rid of that early.”

    • Hawkstradamus adds to His post AT 3:51 PM…

      Laver says:
      “If he gets a good draw and finds himself not playing long, long matches to push into his fitness, then he could be dangerous.”

      Laver probably lurks on Tenngrand and is a fan of Hawkstradamus. 🙂

      (Aside: Hawkstradamus will refer to Himself in the third person for the foreseeable future until further notice.)
