Tennis icon Roger Federer at the age of 37 is back for another arduous year on the ATP circuit and is all prepped up for the Australian Open, which starts on January 14. To build up his fitness at an optimum level when the tournament gets underway in Melbourne, Federer will play a tournament in Perth at the Hopman Cup. Perth lies in the Australian state of Western Australia, which is a hotspot for various tourists who visit the country down-under.
While in Perth to prepare for the Hopman Cup, Federer decided to take some time out from his busy schedule and travel to the limestone formations at ‘The Pinnacles’ located in Nambung National Park in Western Australia.
Federer explored a variety of locations in the beautiful desert sights and also promoted tourism in the state. Federer professed his love for Perth and locations nearby, praising the natural surrounding of ‘The Pinnacles’, saying, “I’m a big fan of road trips, not many people know that. One of my big dreams when I retire and I have time is to travel Europe extensively and also places like this. It’s nice to be at the Pinnacles today, it looks amazing – like on the moon.”
Here are a few pictures of Federer’s sojourn at the world famous travel location:
